Her work explores new solutions to architecture and planning by giving voice to elements deemed inappropriate or undesirable—traces of a sites history, contemporary photographs or drawings, and texts or spoken words. Richters work on re-skinning the city proposes that the act of designing is an act of editing, appropriating, and layering. Her work, characterized by an absolute intensity of technical skill, addresses contemporary issues of authorship, precedence, site, and memory. XYZ: The Architecture of Dagmar Richter catalogs over 10 years of Dagmar Richters design practice. This book combines a descriptive, hyper-linked text arrangement with drawings, models, and computer renderings of over 15 competition entries, urban design proposals, and built projects.
