The work of Herman Hertzberger is internationally esteemed. His Lessons for Students in Architecture was first published in 1991, and has gone through many reprints, with translations into Japanese, German, Italian, Portuguese, Taiwanese, Dutch, Greek, Polish, Iranian, Korean and Chinese. Space and the Architect is his second book. It charts the backgrounds to his work of recent years and the ideas informing it, drawing on a wide spectrum of subjects and designs by artists, precursors, past masters and colleagues, with his own work as a reference point throughout. Space is its principal themephysical space, but also the mental or intellectual regions the architect calls upon during the process of designing. Hertzberger’s broad practical experience, his ideas and his seemingly inexhaustible ‘library’ of images are a major source of inspiration for anyone whose concern is the design of space. Second revised edition.
