Distinct Ambiguity

GRAFT

Visionary architecture with a conscience.

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.
