Architecture builds upon history. Even the avant-gardist creed to ‘make it new’ still assumes a past. It is impossible to imagine novelty without an awareness of what existed before. In their transformation projects, diederendirrix retell stories of buildings and sites by paraphrasing parts of the story, by recasting central actors, by making architecture speak in other words. By doing that, they make it anew. This book presents 17 projects of diederendirrix, and analyzes how they give existing buildings a new lease of life.
