Introduction by Joseph Rykwert

Artemis London Limited, 1994



In this book David Chipperfield sets out a theory of design that rejects centalised ideologies and acknowledges the importanace of both intuition and intellect. For Chipperfield, all design is an intellectual craft, involving the reconciliation of ideas as well as responding to the influences of process and materials. Images from built projects reinforce this themes while the central body of the book emphasises the experimentation carried out in projects for buildings in England, Japan, and Germany.
