Tom Wiscombe Architecture - Objects Models Worlds
Based in Los Angeles, Tom Wiscombe heads an internationally recognised architecture practice, known for its powerful massing, graphic qualities, and tectonic inventiveness. His team’s approach stems from their theory of the flat ontology of architecture, which imagines architecture – and the world – as a set of discrete, lively entities that exist democratically on a flat plane. In this imposing monograph, the practice challenges the discipline of architecture to reimagine its place in contemporary culture. A body of work produced over the last decade is presented as part of a constellation of objects, ideas, precedents, and references and articulated with humour and clarity.
