Description:This monograph presents the first thorough documentation of the buildings of Dutch architect Ben van Berkel whose works include the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam; the Piet Hein Tunnel in Amsterdam; housing projects in Sloten and Amersfoort; office buildings, urban plans for the renovation of the central area in Amsterdam's Eastern Harbors; and his designs for Rotterdam's Theater Square. Interspersed among the numerous built and unbuilt projects are essays by van Berkel and his wife and partner Caroline Box. These additions make the book less a conventional architectural monograph than a theoretical statement about finding novel forms for architecture outside of the profession.
