Armed surfaces: Dagmar Richter, DR D
"Armed Surfaces presents DRD Lab's investigations into contemporary reality and a new typology for living. An analysis of transitional moments in daily life initiates a re-examination of Functionalism as an ideology of standardisation and normalcy. The DRD lab uses theory, spatial and cultural analysis, dynamic measurement, temporal positioning and their collected data to develop a non-standard diagram which exposes the new role of architectural surfaces as 'performing surfaces'. This concept is explored through a series of research-oriented projects which include 'custom mass produced' contemporary housing and a performance induced landscape. In the diverse projects undertaken here, Richter seeks to radically reinvent urban design through a game of 'retracing' and 'restitution', founded in the notion the information is what qualifies space. The book explores new solutions to architecture and planning exposing an alternative view of architecture.
