Abstract:

"The Dutch studio Mecanoo, active for over twenty years, has built up an extraordinary capacity for the critical exploration of contemporary architecture from a viewpoint unconstrained by set stylistic features, showing a preference for its productive and relational aspects. The book undertakes an analysis of their work through thematic chapters that set out to reconstruct the complex modalities which link the Delft studio's eclectic linguistic experimentation with its concrete activities in the real world."--Jacket.
