Stan Allen and Marc McQuade eds., Landform Building: Architecture’s New Terrain, (Zurich: Lars Muller, 2011)
Landform Building sets out to examine the many ways in which landscape effects are manifest in architecture today: not as a cross-disciplinary phenomenon (architects working on the landscape) but as new design techniques, new formal strategies and technical problems within architecture itself.
Landform building in contemporary architecture is more than a formal strategy. New technologies, new design techniques and a demand for enhanced environmental performance have provoked a re-thinking of architecture’s traditional relationship to the ground. Some of today’s most innovative buildings no longer occupy a given site but instead, construct the site itself.
