Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Dagmar Richter is one of the few architects working today who seek to radically reinvent urban design. Her work explores new solutions to architecture and planning by giving voice to elements deemed inappropriate or undesirable—traces of a site's history, contemporary photographs or drawings, and texts or spoken words. Richter's work on "re-skinning" the city proposes that the act of designing is an act of editing, appropriating, and layering. Her work, characterized by an absolute intensity of technical skill, addresses contemporary issues of authorship, precedence, site, and memory. XYZ: The Architecture of Dagmar Richter catalogs over 10 years of Dagmar Richter's design practice. This book combines a descriptive, "hyper-linked" text arrangement with drawings, models, and computer renderings of over 15 competition entries, urban design proposals, and built projects.
