Berlage was a significant personality in modern Dutch architecture. His career consisted of extraordinary constructive achievements: the Amsterdam Stock Market, which recaptures Romanesque forms through the austere simplicity of its volumes and its use of exposed brick; urbanistic plans for Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht, based on highly unitary compositional designs in open contrast with contemporary trends; as well as extremely controversial works such as the Christian Science Church and the City Museum of The Hague. This book clarifies less well-documented sections of the architect's oeuvre and includes a systematic index along with a catalogue of his writings, many archive images and an important photographic survey.
