Item description for Architecture Bulletin 02: Essays on the Designed Environment by Timo Rijk, Aaron Betsky, Hans Ibelings & Winy Maas...
This second issue of NAi's biannual Architecture Bulletin comes in the form of a tribute to that institution's most recent director, Aaron Betsky, who left what the Architect's Newspaper calls "the world's largest museum devoted to architecture" to lead the Cincinnati Art Museum in Ohio in 2006. In tribute to Betsky, his former colleagues have turned their minds to themes that he held dear and kept in the foreground of NAi's programming: the future of the Netherlands' polder landscape, strategies for urban renewal and the question of what exactly makes Dutch design so good. Provocative historical essays address the field's Eurocentricity and the often underestimated influence of American Modernism on Dutch architecture.
