Since its foundation in 1989, Asymptote Architecture has been at the forefront of technological innovation in the field of architecture and design. Actualizations presents a detailed portfolio of 18 virtual designs, from competition entries to commissioned building projects like the Solomon Tower in Seoul, destined to be one of Asia s tallest buildings. The text examines the vision of award-winning founders Hani Rashid and Lise Anne Couture, from their early polemical investigations into fluidity and mutational space to their current position as leading-edge technology specialists. Asymptote argues that architecture has always been an idealistic virtual discipline, a conviction reflected in their many art installations and exhibition designs, and their 2004 award of the Frederick Kiesler Prize for their progressive blend of speculative architecture and art.
