Clear geometric forms become sculptural buildings when given a thin skin of
decorative patterns by these Dutch architects. Buildings like the Y Towers, the
printworks for Veenman Drukkers, and the Minnaert Building are icons whose
facades give surprising views through to the interior, while inside the space is
captured and used as a form-giving element to tantalize the senses.
This book looks at the many layers in the firm's work, with texts on skin and
patterns, hollows and patios, model studies of the sculptures and silhouettes,
cartoons, photos, and plans in this enlightening overview.
