Like all the work of architects Liz Diller + Ric Scofidio, Flesh is a set of contradictions and complexities. Itis both a monograph of their workthe first ever on their art, architecture, and installationsbut also not a traditional monograph. It is a both/and, neither/nor book-as-project noted at the time of its publication, in 1994, for its groundbreaking typography and not-too-subtle critique of architecture from within. Since its publication, Diller + Scofidio (now Diller Scofidio + Renfro ) have gone on to become among the world's most famous architects, but the themes, concerns, and even forms that make them so celebrated today are all here in Flesh, along with its most radical proposition: that anything can be architecture, starting with this book, one of the most sought-after and valuable books in our library.

About the Author:

Georges Teyssot, Professor in the School of Architecture at Laval University, Quebec, has taught the history and theory of architecture at the Istituto Universitario di Architettura of Venice, Princeton University's School of Architecture, and the Department of Architecture at ETH Zurich. He is the author or editor of many books, including "Interior Landscapes" and "The American Lawn".

Review:

Some now regard Las Vegas as a wave of the future, the ultimate architectural incarnation of a society that can't get off the roulette wheel. I'll put my money on Diller and Scofidio. This gifted team takes architecture back to the front of ideas. Herbert Muschamp, The New York Times

Flesh is a delightful collection of seemingly disparate architectural elements ...which nevertheless coheres as a strong architectural statement. Michael Speaks, Newline
