thames & hudson: written and compiled largely by the architect, the book reveals the inspirations, insights, and techniques that allow him to conceive—and build—such experimental work. there is a complete documentation of NOX’S oeuvre, including built and unbuilt work—some twenty-three projects in total; essays by leading critics manual de landa, detlef mertins, andrew benjamin, brian massumi, and arjen mulder; and explanatory texts by spuybroek that link the projects together. many of the illustrations in the book have been specially created, making accessible for the first time the complex strategies employed by spuybroek. this in turn will make the publication an invaluable resource for both students and practicing designers. over 800 illustrations, 400 in color.
