Spazio Projects, the YouTube channel of Spazio, the bookstore, gallery, and "independent platform for critical reflection, speculation and discussion" in Milan, features videos with readings from books about architecture.

The videos feature readings by Spazio's Mariana Siracusa accompanied by spreads from inside the books. The readings are in English and most of the featured books are fairly new, but some of the books are published in multiple languages and older titles appear now and then among the recently published book. It's a diverse collection of readings that are enjoyable and informative, with dozens of them made over the last year or so. Find them on the Spazio Projects YouTube channel.

A few recent highlights from Spazio Projects are embedded below.
