Architectural Guide Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg: 20th century (Birkhauser Architectural Guide)

Product Description

This new Birkhauser Architectural Guide offers a handy survey of the most important 20th century buildings in these countries. The authors Herman van Bergeijk and Otakar Macel have selected 550 buildings, including projects in urban areas, smaller towns, as well as in provincial regions. The projecs are organized by provinces and towns and are listed with the precise addresses and detailed registers. The buildings are further described through photographs and architectural plans and sections in many cases. There have not been any 20th century architectural guides for either Belgium or Luxembourg despite their central European location and architectural significance. Belgium, with buildings by Victor Horta, Josef Hoffmann and Henry van de Velde, is the country of the Art Nouveau tradition, and is today again taking an independent direction with the buildings by Philippe Samyn and others. During the past 20 years, Luxembourg has become a country brimming with high-quality contemporary architecture, especially through international architects like Arquitectonica, Denys Lasdun, Gottfried Bohm and Richard Meier.
