“After close to a century of modernism as the prevailing approach to architecture, in the last two decades, this book argues, our widespread allegiance began to shift away from that ‘ism’ toward a new social realm, and we have now reached a plateau where digital design and robotic production are the norm. The firm Archi-Tectonics, in particular, has long valued performance over form, design intelligence over style. As seen through an examination of 10 current and recent projects by the New York–based practice, founded by Winka Dubbeldam in 1994, this book celebrates the particular and singular over the ideal and universal.”  — Architectural Record

“Traditionally, architects don’t like to reveal too much of their design process, but Strange Objects, New Solids and Massive Things finds Dubbeldam doing the near-opposite. But maybe that’s what’s needed — so readers can understand how Archi-Tectonics creates those ‘strange objects,’ ‘new solids,’ and ‘massive things.’” — John Hill, World-Architects
