Projects and Their Consequences presents fifteen key projects from leading architectural thinkers Reiser + Umemoto. Projects and Their Consequences traces
thirty years of innovative, multidisciplinary investigations of form, structure, technique, and planning. Projects include large-scale studies of infrastructure for
the East River Corridor and Hudson Yards areas in Manhattan and the Alishan
Railway in Taiwan, as well as schemes for cultural institutions including the
New Museum, Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, and University of Applied Arts
Vienna. Also included are thought-provoking "textual projects": narrative works
that blur the boundaries of art and architecture. Projects and Their Consequences
balances incisive interviews and essays with more than 400 strikingly original
drawings, collages, and paintings. Large-format and beautifully designed,
it is a necessary volume for architects and those interested in the intersection
of architecture, art, and culture.


Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto are the founders and principals of RUR Architecture DPC, an internationally recognized design firm based in New York City.


Editorial Reviews

A Daily Dose of Architecture:

"What stands out from the many projects is not one or the other project, but the fact RUR was a consistent presence in high-profile competitions in the late 1990s and early 2000s....[T]he designs were influential through their publication in Assemblage, AD, and elsewhere. That their descriptions in Projects and Their Consequences are in the present rather than past tense makes them new again."

Metropolis Online:

"Architects who came of age in the mid-aughts have surely thumbed through, if not scrupulously underlined and dog-eared, the pages of Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto's 2006 Atlas of Novel Tectonics. The architects' follow-up work, Projects and Their Consequences, is a different animal. Spanning 30 years of practice, the book is far less portable and more ambitious than its predecessor, yet it has all the same magic."
