From the Publisher. This book gathers together projects and theoretical reflections immortalized through exacting, oversized perspective views, snapshots, photographic sequences and architectural ideograms in felt pen. This is how architect and theorist Wiel Arets ‘freezes’ his thoughts, fixing nascent ideas onto paper. The book opens with an essay by Kenneth Frampton, while previously unpublished hand sketches and coloured pencil perspectives fill the pages.
Wiel Arets, former director of Berlage Institute and currently Dean of the Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture, is known for his academic progressive research and hybrid design solutions. He has taught in many universities and designed numerous important buildings, including the Academy of Art and Architecture in Maastricht and the university library of Utrecht.
