Event description
Book launch: Strange Objects, New Solids and Massive Things with award-winning architect Winka Dubbeldam, from Archi-Tectonics.

About this event

Strange Objects, New Solids and Massive Things explores the work of Archi-Tectonics, the award-winning architecture firm founded by Winka Dubbeldam in 1994 in New York.

The book explores the practice’s work, in light of a paradigm shift in contemporary design enabled by advances in technology and design conceptualization. Examining the architectural object and the process of its emergence and production, the book demonstrates in great detail how the firm’s unique design methodology of research, optimization, prototyping, and construction innovation leads to original, characteristic designs. Rather than a traditional monograph, the book, as manual, was conceived itself as a Strange Object reflecting the non-standard way the firm’s projects come into being. The book was designed by WSDIA and includes essays by Winka Dubbeldam, Manuel Delanda and Jonathan Jackson.

Join us for a presentation about the book from Archi-Tectonics’ founder Winka Dubbeldam, followed by a conversation with Aric Chen, General and Artistic Director of Het Nieuwe Instituut.
