System of Novelties is the first book on Interloop—Architecture’s work. It combines elements of both monograph and field guide, placing the firm’s novel architectural designs within their broader context, with special attention to how influences, procedures, and techniques have been threaded from project to project over a period of two decades. A diverse collection of built and speculative designs are framed by three pairs of research topics: Information–Shape, Procedure–Assembly, and Material–Detail. Graphic notes trace and synthetically connect the systems—some unique, some recurring—used in and between projects. System of Novelties demonstrates the firm’s technical expertise with materials, manufacturing, and delivery processes and offers insights into innovative forms of contemporary architectural practice.
