Distinct Ambiguity is the first book to present GRAFT’s comprehensive body of work. It is structured into five thematic chapters that reflect the fundamental aspects of the collective’s inimitable approach. Each one– Ambiguity, Curiosity, Narration, Happiness, and Courage– is illustrated by stunning visuals of the work that best illustrates 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.

 Insightful chapter introductions and project descriptions provide detailed documentation of the inspiration, context, and processes involved in creating some of the most visionary and relevant architecture and design of our time. Distinct Ambiguity features a foreword by director of Haus am Waldsee Dr. Katja Blomberg.

Architecture must improve our lives, not just fulfil functional or aesthetic requirements. In the search for quality and beauty, complex form and ambiguity are part of the essence of an architecture that goes beyond what is ‘patent’ and ‘correct’.
