About this title

Synopsis:

Sensual forms, complicated theories, and the use of innovative or trendy materials can misguide the public into defining a building as good, or compelling, architecture. Yet, looking at the rare purity of architect Jacq. de Brouwer's work, it is clear that immensely powerful architecture can be created with an economy of means. De Brouwer stands outside the main currents of Dutch architecture in which there is an over-emphasis on the production of seductive superficies. From the Dutch perspective, his approach to architecture is remarkably unfashionable, perhaps even old-fashioned and the abstraction in De Brouwer's work is interpreted as both unruly and intriguing. He cuts to the fundamentals of design with determination and precision, while banishing distractions of trends and fashions in the architectural profession. This monograph provides a thorough chronological overview of the most important works created by De Brouwer since he founded his practice in the mid-1980s.
