Projects and Their Consequences presents 15 key projects from architectural thinkers Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto. Projects and Their Consequences traces 30 years of innovative, multidisciplinary investigations of form, structure, technique, and planning. Projects include large-scale studies of infrastructure as well as schemes for cultural institutions such as museums and universities. Also included are thought-provoking textual projects, which are narrative works that blur the boundaries of art and architecture. Projects and Their Consequences balances incisive interviews and essays with more than 400 strikingly original drawings, collages, and paintings. Large-format and beautifully designed, it is a necessary volume for architects and those interested in the intersection of architecture, art, and culture.
Reiser and Umemoto are the founders and principals of RUR Architecture DPC, an internationally recognized design firm based in New York City, New York.
