Destroyers/Builders: Rooted Flows


This book is dedicated to the work of Destroyers/Builders (Linde Freya Tangelder), as part of a series of monographs on the thought and work of young contemporary designers. The work of Destroyers/Builders, utterly contemporary but with stylistic references that in some cases derive from a modernist imaginary, is driven by observation of human interactions with inhabitable spaces, and by a critical-formal interpretation of the ideal-typical geometry of making architecture.

Illustrated by a rich photographic series, the book presents the results of Tangelder’s creative thought through some selected projects; written by Barbara Brondi & Marco Rainò, the volume recounts the experience of the Design Residency inspired by the theme “Rooted Flows” Destroyers/Builders was the protagonist of, which is part of the broader project IN Residence, a research program dedicated to design that has elaborated new reflections in the field of education and training, as well as in the support and promotion of creative talent, through an intense and recognized activity.

The book Destroyers/Builders: Rooted Flows is published along with another volume of the same series dedicated to the work of Kostas Lambridis, following previous releases about Marcin Rusak and Roberto Sironi. The publication is produced also thanks to the Cultural Patronage of Cassina.

As creators and curators of the IN Residence program, Barbara Brondi & Marco Rainò are interested in experimentation through project practice, theoretical research and critical-curatorial reflection. Architects, they are the founders of BRH+, a design studio dedicated to the development and investigation around interdisciplinary architectural practice.
