Item description for MVRDV: Works and Projects 1991-2006 by Michele Costanzo...
The work of MVRDV can be considered an emblematic turning point in Dutch architecture. Early projects such as the Light Urbanism study for the Municipality of Rotterdam, the headquarters for Public Broadcasting Company VPRO and housing for elderly Wozoco's in Amsterdam brought MVRDV to the attention of a wide field of clients and gave them international acclaim. What stands out as the characteristic feature of MVRDV is an adherence to reality and the need to strip the eye of preconceived ideas. The operational methodology that stems from this is centered around the application of the "technique" of the datascape, based on extensive and generalized research that tends to assemble an enormous quantity of information so as to proceed to the project phase in a rational, objective manner. The book examines the distinctive features of MVRDV's work and shows the full range of their achievements. Michele Costanzo is professor of planning and design at the University of Siracusa. He writes regularly for the architecture journals Metamorfosi, Parametro, and L'arca.

Mystery Book Jan 12, 2007
The photo pictured is not the cover image, nor is the title accurate; but the content is first rate. Unlike MVRDV's own publications in which the pages number into the thousands, this book is simple and short. The image quality is very high; an excellent snapshot of MVRDV's works.
