"Armed Surfaces presents DRD Lab's investigations into contemporary
reality and a new typology for living. An analysis of transitional
moments in daily life initiates a re-examination of Functionalism
as an ideology of standardisation and normalcy. The DRD lab uses
theory, spatial and cultural analysis, dynamic measurement,
temporal positioning and their collected data to develop a
non-standard diagram which exposes the new role of architectural
surfaces as 'performing surfaces'. This concept is explored through
a series of research-oriented projects which include 'custom mass
produced' contemporary housing and a performance induced landscape.
In the diverse projects undertaken here, Richter seeks to radically
reinvent urban design through a game of 'retracing' and
'restitution', founded in the notion the information is what
qualifies space. The book explores new solutions to architecture
and planning exposing an alternative view of architecture.
