Distinct Ambiguity: Graft
GRAFT & Katja Blomberg
Hardcover | 24 x 3 x 31 cm | 208 pp

As their name suggests, GRAFT's groundbreaking architecture and design crosses boundaries and grafts the creative potentials and methodologies of different disciplines to each other. By doing so, the collective has created a pioneering visual language that takes surprising and seemingly contrary combinations of ideas and melds them into projects that are aesthetically innovative as well as sustainable and socially meaningful.
Distinct Ambiguity is the first book to present GRAFT's comprehensive body of work. It is structured into 5 thematic chapters that reflect the fundamental aspects of the collective's inimitable approach. Each chapter - Ambiguity, Curiosity, Narration, Happiness, and Courage - is illustrated with stunning visuals of the work that best exemplifies the concept, from the celebrated projects of the Make It Right Foundation in New Orleans to resorts in harmony with their natural surroundings, zero-energy villas, and whimsical home furnishings.
Insightful chapter introductions and project descriptions provide detailed documentation of the inspiration, context, and processes involved in creating some of the most visionary and relevant architecture and design of our time.
