NOX. Machining Architecture
Rotterdam-based NOX, run by Lars Spuybroek, is the most important digital Architecture Studio in Europe
Part manual, part manifesto, part monograph, this is the first publication that looks comprehensively at the methods and techniques of Lars Spuybroek’s hugely inventive and influential architecture.
In the young generation of ‘digerati’ architects, Rotterdam-based Lars Spuybroek and his studio, NOX, are among the few who have completed built projects. Before the advent of large-scale processing power, digital modelling and computer-aided manufacturing, NOX’s outlandish structures would have been inconceivable.
Today, and internationally, the work is being taken more and more seriously as the possibilities for construction and spatial innovation have become more feasible.
Written and compiled largely by the architect, the book gives the inspirations, insights and methods that allow him to conceive - and build - such original work.
- a complete documentation of NOX’s œuvre, including built and unbuilt work
- essays by leading lights in design and cultural criticism - Manuel DeLanda, Detlef Mertins, Brian Massumi, Andrew Benjamin and Arjen Mulder
- explanatory texts by Lars Spuybroek that link the projects together
Many illustrations specially created for the book make Spuybroek’s complex strategies and techniques accessible for the first time - an invaluable resource for students and designers looking for tricks of the trade.
