RZLBD Hopscotch, the first monograph on RZLBD's work, focuses on its built projects over the last five years, while including a selection of past works and polemical writings that set the foundation for the practice.
With a particular interest in the house as an archetypal model of the world, whilst implementing the guiding idea that design belongs to everyone and that 'modern has to be affordable', the work of RZLBD occupies a unique position in its exploration of new ideas for contemporary infill dwellings.
Along with architectural projects and writings, the book is also a record of Aliabadi's search for a design language and his unique perspective coming out of his three major solo expeditions-to the North Pole, round the world in 49 days and the 'Trans-Canada', across the country from Atlantic to Pacific.
