Emilio Ambasz: Emerging Nature

Precursor of Architecture and Design

With contributions by Barry Bergdoll, Peter Buchanan, Kenneth Frampton, Peter Hall, Fulvio Irace, Dean MacCannell, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Lauren Sedofsky, Michael Sorkin and James Wines. Design by Integral Lars Müller.

Emerging Nature documents the work of the Argentinian architect, graphic designer and industrial designer Emilio Ambasz. The publication discusses his projects ranging from buildings and urban gardens including green facade vertical gardens to exhibition designs and everyday objects. The comprehensive volume features essays by various experts, interviews, a wealth of color photographs and drawings.

Ambasz’s main concern is to integrate nature and construction into architectural design, which is why he is regarded as one of the most important pioneers of Green Architecture. In his work a combination of landscape and architecture emerges, in which his respect for the environment and ecological sustainability becomes clear. A prime example of this is the Fukuoka Prefectural International Hall in Japan: a building that houses more than 100,000 m2 of exhibition spaces, theaters and offices is also an open green area in the form of a hanging garden.

The immense scope and diversity of Emilio Ambasz’ work is astounding. Besides architecture he has made a name for himself with the various objects he designs; they range from diesel engines and streetlights to portable TV players, fold-out watches and innovative office chairs. Emilio Ambasz followed his widespread interests and left traces in all the disciplines he crossed on his professional path.
