DILLER, ELIZABETH / SCOFIDIO, RICARDO
Like all the work of architects Liz Diller + Ric Scofidio, Flesh is a set of contradictions and complexities. It is both a monograph of their work the first ever on their art, architecture, and installations but also not a traditional monograph. It is a both/and, neither/nor More...book-as-project noted at the time of its publication, in 1994, for its groundbreaking typography and not-too-subtle critique of architecture from within. Since its publication, Diller + Scofidio (now Diller Scofidio + Renfro ) have gone on to become among the world's most famous architects, but the themes, concerns, and even forms that make them so celebrated today are all here in Flesh, along with its most radical proposition: that anything can be architecture, starting with this book, one of the most sought-after and valuable books in our library.
