Riassunto: 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.
L'autore: Hans Ibelings is the author of the seminal Supermodernism, which places contemporary architecture in the context of globalization, and which he has recently revised and updated. He has contributed to titles including Lights in the Blue: Milano; Eastern Docklands Amsterdam: Urbanism and Architecture; and Town Spaces. Since its founding in 2004, he has also been Publisher of the magazine A10: New European Architecture, which seeks to provide "a concise and up-to-date survey of the latest developments in European architecture, from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean Sea."
