About this product
- DescriptionWiel Arets: Autobiographical References opens up a unique and richly layered view of the architectural work and thinking of this internationally rewned Dutch architect. Underlying Arets practice, research and teaching is his concept of a wonderful world , an optimistic outlook on how the world will evolve in the next 75 years.In addition to portfolios of 60 exemplary projects and designs by his studio, this book presents 5 lectures, and 5 debates between Arets and other thinkers and practitioners, as well as an extensive series of 10 interviews with Arets. More than simply presenting his work alongside essays and project descriptions, Wiel Arets: Autobiographical References reveals the interaction between Arets biography and his architectural thinking, teaching and design in the evolution of his distinguished career. As well as being a congenial interview partner, Robert McCarter, Professor of Architecture at Washington University (St. Louis), provides an insightful concluding essay on Arets dialogical practice. The multi-layered content finds perfect form and expression in the exceptional book design and layout by Irma Boom Office.
