European emigres have been changing the face of modern American architecture for decades. Winka Dubbeldam surely belongs to that long 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. Incisive essays by Detlef Mertins, Javier Barreiro Cavestany, and Michael Speaks complement lush photographs, informative diagrams, and her compelling designs.


Winka Dubbeldam is the principal of Archi-Tectonics, a progressive architecture firm based in New York City. She is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Architecture at Harvard University and Practice Professor at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Dubbeldam has given lectures throughout prominent institutions in the United States and Europe. She lives in New York City.
