Trade Paperback Used-Good The work of the architect Herman Hertzberger is generally classified as structuralist. The implication here is that each component of the building is
treated individually at the expense of the whole, the total form. In this book, which documents eleven projects from the years 1990 1995, Hertzberger analyses his development and concludes that he has reached the next stage of his work. His concern now extends to the potential of large parts of buildings to summarize the whole, bringing with it a more urbane approach. This necessary step ostensibly signifies a break with earlier work, yet the distinction vital to structuralism between 'competence' (a form's capacity for interpretation) and 'performance' (how it is interpreted in a given situation) is still intact as the basic premise in his work, and now serves him as the key to accommodating the unexpected. Book has minor to mild shelf wear.
