Architects Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto have been generating some of the most provocative thinking in the field for nearly twenty years. With "Atlas of Novel Tectonics", Reiser and Umemoto hone in on the many facets of architecture and illuminate their theories with great thought and simplicity. The Atlas is organized as an accumulation of short chapters that address the workings of matter and force material science, the lessons of art and architectural history, and the influence of architecture on culture (and vice versa). Reiser and Umemoto see architectural design as a series of problem situations, and each chapter is an argument devoted to a specific condition or case. Influenced by a wide range of fields and phenomena - Brillat Saverin's classic Physiology of Taste is one of their primary models - the authors provide a cross-section of thinking and inspiration. The result is both an elucidation of the concepts that guide Reiser and Umemoto through their own design process and a series of meditations on topics that have formed their own sense as architects. "Atlas of Novel Tectonics" offers an entirely fresh perspective on subjects that are generally taken for granted, and does so with a welcome punch and energy.
