European emigrès have been changing the face of modern American architecture for decades. Winka Dubbeldam belongs to that list of distinguished practitioners. Working across scales - from a New York Skyscraper to a rural house - the Dutch-born architect has established herself as one of the most provocative figures in the field by seamlessly integrating function and form, technology and comfort, city and home. Folded glass facades, intelligent building cores, and interactive environments highlight the work of her progressive, process-based studio/laboratory, Archi-Tectonics.

As much resource as monograph, Archi-Tectonics Index explores Dubbeldam's intense, research-laden approach to over twenty projects, including the highly acclaimed From HardWare to SoftForm exhibition, Aida Hair Salon, and Gipsy Trail Residence. Insightful essays accompany photographs, informative diagrams and her compelling designs.
