Zamp Kelp's work understands the quality of today's cities by their inner dynamism, arising from within the system of the city. Explained in this book is how he defines the qualities of urbanism by the multitude of signs of destruction and potentiality which calls for a confrontation between empirical materiality and architecture. The book also appreciates why his work is essentially social, in that it is truthfully and easily comprehensible. It is because of these factors, that it is truly astonishing work.
* First volume to ever present the complete works of this internationally renowned architect.
* Lavish color and black and white photographs and drawings throughout.
* Publication coincides with the first ever exhibition of Zamp Kelp's complete works in Germany.

Torsten Schmiedeknecht Zamp Kelp Expanding Space Zamp Kelp's work has become known throughout the world for its uniquely radical yet buildable appeal. Zamp Kelp - Expanding Space presents a comprehensive collection of Zamp Kelp's written and built work since his time working with Haus-Rucker-Co. Structured into five parts, the monograph looks at Zamp Kelp's work from different angles. Apart from an extensive review of his architectural projects, the centrepiece of the book, the volume features four explorations into his work. Torsten Schmiedeknecht is looking at Zamp Kelp's architectural development from the early 1960s until today, investigating key issues of the work such as projection, surface, metaphor, virtuality and identity. A conversation between the author and the Las Vegas specialist Paul Davies investigates Zamp Kelp's work with regards to popular culture and the development of the nineteen sixties avantgarde. A second conversation between the writer and critic Steven Spier, recently appointed Professor at the School of Architecture, Strathclyde University in Glasgow, and Schmiedeknecht discusses contemporary cultural issues with reference to Zamp Kelp. Zamp Kelp - Expanding Space invites the reader to become familiar with one of the most charismatic contemporary European architects and presents an interesting account of ideas of the current international debate. 'Zamp' was originally his nickname: meaning the 'scamp' and this he remains. The Neanderthal Museum has him scampering around a dream-like slithery object that is as pure and naughty as anything from the early 'Haus-Rucker' days. Certainly when I first saw a photograph of it I could hardly believe it was real! His visions for platforms hung high above the trees can now be realized and give a totally new view of the world. Freshness and buildable humour are his hallmark and reveal him as being the key spirit of Haus-Rucker. Peter Cook With sympathy and excitement I have been following Zamp Kelp's work since the beginning of his career as a founding member of Haus-Rucker-Co in 1967. Based on his early interest in the phenomenon of projection, his work is bridging the gap between the physical world and the growing amount of virtual spaces. Zamp Kelp - Expanding Space provides a concise overview of his work, illustrating his development from the early nineteen sixties until today and offers an outlook for a future treatment of societal space. Kristin Feirreis the permanent, the everlasting, the complete, the all-round some of those idiosyncrasies of heroic architecture, all fellow architects of origin aspire - he wisely keeps at a critical distance on his thrilling architectural journey, zamp - leaves lush traces like thought patterns... agitating architecture the speaker of the artistic environment once you get there, zamp-rucker-nomad, has left another quintessential message somewhere else, already...
