Item description for Van Herk & De Kleijn Tools (BAD ISBN DNU) (German Edition) by Sabien de Kleijn...

This monograph gives a comprehensive overview of the designs and built work of Arne van Herk and Sabien de Kleijn, from 1973 until the present day. Besides architecture, urban design, interiors and furniture, the book dwells at length on the informal and conceptual projects--films, clothing, everyday objects--developed by van Herk & de Kleijn throughout their career. Their joint oeuvre is explored in a continuous narrative that makes no distinction between the ingenious rooflights of their own houseboat and a major housing project like Haarlemmerhouttuinen in Amsterdam, and focuses just as easily on their ultra-light half-meter-high platform shoes as on one of their interiors. If the significance of their work lies in their liberal concern for everyday things, this volume emphasizes their approach as one that eschews image in favor of imagination, of giving shape to the things with which we surround ourselves. The visual narrative, with explanatory texts by Arne van Herk and Sabien de Kleijn, is complemented by an in-depth essay by Hans Ibelings and a foreword by the landscape architect Adriaan Geuze. Essays by Hans Ibelings, Clothbound, 9.25 x 8.75 in./224 pgs / 250 color 100 BW0 duotone 0 ~ Item D20098

Reviews - What do customers think about Van Herk & De Kleijn Tools (BAD ISBN DNU) (German Edition)?

Design for the Inhabitants  Oct 16, 2007
I am very happy with this book. If you check their website, you can find out what styles of architecture they have been able to build, but it does not tell you the story. This monograph provides all the rest. As you move through pages quickly, the atmosphere both resulting from the projects and the graphic design is very academic but free. It reminds of an architecture school environment with all the mess and dirt from the process of searching but of the nonconformists who try to follow their own paths. You also get the impression that they do not hide anything. But this alone would not be interesting without what they have built and developed over time. Documentations of their projects and the texts are thorough enough to tell this story over last thirty something years and to give good lessons for the countries where the modernist buildings have covered their now generic cities, and as a result, people are starting to be aware of the importance of living environment. It shows what socially conscious projects can be and how they might be expressed in built form and in space. The three essays also explain the positive aspects of their works, which may not be evident from the modest appearances due to the programs with small budget.
