Item description for Dutch Realist by Karelse Van der Meer...

This monograph of the architecture bureau De Zwarte Hond (The Black Dog) presents a comprehensive overview of realized and unbuilt projects by the office, formerly called Karelse Van der Meer Architecten. De Zwarte Hond is a large and wide-ranging bureau with branches in Groningen and Rotterdam, and has one of most extensive and eclectic portfolios of built projects in the Netherlands. The bureau is unique in its down-to-earth design mentality that is inspired by the conviction that the best design is the result of a thorough study of task, program, and context. The book concentrates on the design process and the resulting solutions for a series of projects within recent years. This focus on 'process' and 'result' is approached in two ways: on one hand, by means of a substantial reflection on their methodology in which craftsmanship and research are at least as important as the end result; on the other hand, by means of a complete overview of all 500 projects in their extensive archive. Between reflection and the archive lies a concise chronology that traces the history and evolution of the bureau over the years. Essays by Catja Edens and Jeroen de Willigen. Hardcover, 9 x 11 in./224 pgs / 60 color, 240 b&w and 11 duotones.
