“Extensive photo documentation of the built projects foregrounds the focus on massing effects. Although the final product does not make explicit the behind- the-scenes design technique, the meticulously developed process included in this book, brings to light the way in which the geometry is generated and translated into construction documents.   ”

Amass makes a case for architectural experiments with massing. By understanding architecture as a collection of interrelationships between multiple masses, the work of plusClover uses pressure, thickness and media – the core subjects of this book – to facilitate differing degrees of coherence. By tabulating selected projects under these three categories of massing, this book demonstrates new possibilities in massing that move beyond the singular object towards multiplicity of effects. Amass unfolds the process – from bounding box diagrams to construction photos - through which the projects were conceived, explored and detailed.
