Item description for Jo Coenen: From Urban Design to Architectural Detail by Umberto Barbieri Hilde de Haan...
The first comprehensive monograph on Jo Coenen.
Dutch architect Jo Coenen is not only an architect, but also a city planner, university lecturer, artist, and, until very recently, the Dutch Government Architect. In this role he was responsible for highly important planning projects and was advisor to the government. In his architectural work, he made a name for himself with the construction of the renowned Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAI) in Rotterdam, a striking office tower in Dusseldorf's Mediahafen, and Amsterdam's city library in Oosterdok-Eiland. His urban planning projects include the entire plans for the Vaillantlaan in the Hague, the former "Sphinx C ramique" grounds in Maastricht, and the master plan for the KNSM island in the eastern harbour area of Amsterdam, which attracted international attention. As Government Architect he composed a report "Designing the Netherlands", appealing for the protection of public space from the inconsiderate actions of investors and for the transformation of fragmented living spaces into coherent urban systems.
