The book Dudok by Iwan Baan is almost ready. Baans photos of ‘landscapes of designs’ that Dudok realized for various places in the Netherlands, make it clear not only that Dudok was a good architect who built with an eye for detail and composition, but was also a good spatial designer, a real ‘urban planner’. Lara Voerman’s sparkling texts underpin this image. Characteristics of the city, village and landscape formed the starting point for Dudok in all his design tasks. The sustainability value of his vision of what we now call spatial quality, splashes off the photos – some 300 pages.
The images that have been carefully selected give a beautiful overall picture of residential landscapes with villas, workers’ houses and flats, in garden villages and post-war residential areas, cemeteries and crematoria to town halls, school and office buildings, in Eindhoven and Velsen, Bussum, Bilthoven and Naarden, Velsen, Schiedam and Hengelo, on the Afsluitdijk to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Leiden and of course Hilversum. The surprising design of the designer firm Koehorst in ‘t Veld makes Dudok by Iwan Baan a very special book! The editors are finishing last details; from December 4 the book is for sale at the Dudok Architecture Center.
