What do you call an architecture firm that draws inspiration from the most extreme aspects of nature and human psychology? When faced with this challenge in 1989, architect Fran├žois Roche decided that the best way to express his firm's design philosophy would be to change its name every few years. Presently, the Paris-based practice goes by the name of R&Sie(n). The firm's investigative approach to architecture focuses on developing technological experiments - cartographic distortions and territorial mutations - in order to explore the bond between building, context, and human relations.

Bioreboot features nineteen projects - illustrated with extensive plans, photographs, and renderings - along with essays and interviews, providing the most comprehensive monograph of this elusive, intriguing firm to date.
