8 x 12 staple-bound booklet with 36 pages, many b/w illustrations and a triple fold-out: one side depicts a proposed subway station for Milan by Steven Holl Architects; the other side has credits for "Offramp" and miscellaneous illustrations. Published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name: Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York City [Thurs, Sept 10 Sat, Oct 3, 1987]. Offramp is a journal produced by the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), which uses essays, conversations, and projects "to investigate the numerous opportunities that architectural practitioners have created for themselves, given that design is undervalued and often invisible in our society."
From the web site for "Storefront for Art and Architecture": Bodybuildings was the first solo exhibition of New York-based practice Diller + Scofidio, a collaborative architecture studio whose work frequently involved performance, bodily apparatuses and architectural sets. The body of work presented in this exhibition, poised between architectural and artistic practice, included a selection of Diller + Scofidiošs early projects in the form of drawings, models, photographs, installations, objects and texts.
Artists, designers and architects include April Greiman, Tom Buresh with Danelle Guthrie, Steven Holl Architects, Reginald Malcolmson and Steve Barry.
