Drawing from the collection of the Netherlands Architecture Institute, which spans almost two centuries of architecture history, this book presents a portrait of the Netherlands. The book brings together the designs, buildings and ideas that have defined the image of Dutch architecture. Architecture historians from the NAI guide you through over 250 outstanding buildings and designs. From Cuypers, Berlage, Kromhout, Van Eesteren, Stam and Wijdeveld to Weeber, Coenen and Koolhaas. Along with the permanent exhibition in the Treasury of the NAI, the book marks the NAI collection's centenary. The book is broad in scope. The thematic-chronological chapters present unique and beautiful items from the collection that attest to the immense imaginative power upon which our built environment is grounded. For each theme, the most noteworthy designs are presented and illustrated with plans, sketches, maquettes and photographs.
