Item description for J.J.P. Oud's Shell Building: Design and Reception by Ed Taverne, Dolf Broekhuizen, D'Laine Camp & Donna De Vries-Hermansader...

The Shell Building was an important moment in the career of J.J.P. Oud. After years in which he had barely managed to realize a design, suddenly in 1942 this strikingly classical office building appeared in The Hague - a design that seemed to ignore the conventions of modernism.
The first part of the book provides a reconstruction of the design process of the Shell Building, using many drawings, photographs, and written sources. The second part describes the reception of the building in architectural publications from the Netherlands, England, Switzerland, and, in particular, the United States, and how Oud reacted to them. In so doing, the book not only offers a comprehensive outline of a main theme of the international postwar debate on architecture; it also makes an essential contribution to a renewed concept of Oud's development.
