9781568981130: Devil's Workshop:: 25 Years of Jersey Devil Architecture

For 25 years the architects who make up Jersey Devil have been constructing their own designs while living on site in tents or Airstream trailers, making adjustments to their structures in response to problems encountered during the building process. Jersey Devil is a name that has been attached to work by Steve Badanes, John Ringel, Jim Adamson, or any combination of the above, plus many other people who have participated in their diverse projects. This loose-knit group of designer-builders has created projects that critique conventional practice, both the process of making architecture and the accepted definitions of architecture itself. Jersey Devil's architecture shows a concern for craft and detail, an attention to the expressiveness of the construction materials, and a strong environmental consciousness.

Devil's Workshop contains complete project descriptions, photographs, drawings, and plans on more than a dozen projects, including the Snail House, the Silo House, the Hoagie House, and the Seaside Pavillion. Essays analyze Jersey Devil's work, providing an insight into the design-build process and its historical context, and discussing the formal qualities inherent in these projects.

Review:

This look at the loose alliance of designer-builders known as "Jersey Devil" and their eccentric, design-as-you-go projects of the last 25 years is a book for endless perusal. The three principal founders of Jersey Devil, Steve Badanes, Jim Adamson, and John Ringel, aren't registered architects, although they have studied architecture. They have built together, separately, and with various friends and associates, but all they share, corporately, is a post-office box. They've created some of the most innovative, outrageous, lovingly crafted, energy-efficient, curvaceous homes around, none of which looks like any we've seen in our neighborhood. Their fun and funky architecture is usually called "alternative," but it is, in fact, both practical and highly principled. Which is why Jersey Devil is trickling into the mainstream, with wise designs for such important buildings as, for example, a Montessori school. --Margaret Moorman

From the Back Cover:

For twenty-five years, the members of Jersey Devil have been constructing their own designs while living on site in tents or Airstream trailers, making adjustments to their structures in response to problems encountered during the building process. Jersey Devil is a name that has been attached to work by Steve Badanes, John Ringel, Jim Adamson, or any combination of the above, plus many other people who have participated in their diverse projects. Devil's Workshop, the first major monograph on the work of this iconoclastic group, contains complete project descriptions, photographs, drawings, and plans of more than a dozen projects, including the Snail House, the Silo House, the Hoagie House, and the Seaside Pavilion. Essays analyzing Jersey Devil's work provide an insight into the design-build process and its historical context and discuss the formal qualities inherent in these projects. A bibliography and full project chronology make Devil's Workshop the comprehensive reference on Jersey Devil.
