Overview

In a career spanning forty years, Herman Hertzberger has focused on creating livable, workable spaces that not only make innovative use of otherwise banal urban landscapes, but also encourage their occupants to recreate these structures to fit their needs. This monograph is the most comprehensive to date of this highly influential Dutch architect, who turns seventy this year.

Herman Hertzberger: Articulations provides an exhaustive sampling of his buildings and projects, many of which have never been featured in book form, as well as writings and sketches from his notebooks. From schools and housing projects to offices and theaters, Hertzberger's concern for individuality, utility and sustainability in architecture have earned him an enthusiastic following especially among those interested in urban renewal. In words and pictures, this book offers a fascinating glimpse of Hertzberger's ideals and creative process, the problems he encounters, and his solutions.
