Item description for Charles Vandenhove: Recent Work by Mil de Koning, Bart Verschaffel & Jean-Francois Chevrier...
The subject of a 1995 survey, Dutch architect Charles Vandenhove has fit enough important activity in the past five years to warrant a monograph devoted to his recent work. Vandenhove's oeuvre has always displayed a tension between his modernist training and a desire to revise or even reject modernism--and the past five years have seen him returning to his modernist instincts, evolving towards a more austere formal vocabulary. "Charles Vandenhove: Recent Work 1995-2000" brings this development out very clearly, while at the same time showing that this trend is not at odds with the more contextual side of Vandenhove's work. Striking examples of this interplay include the Staar complex in Maastricht, the renovation of the Koninklijke Schouwburg, and the Huygensgracht housing development in The Hague. This monograph also addresses Vandenhove's standing as an insider-outsider who is both highly esteemed internationally and regarded as something of a maverick. Hardcover, 160 pages, 10.75 x 8.25 inches, 25 color, 50 b&w and 100 duotone illustrations.
