“Established initially in London in 1980 and based in Germany since 1988 the architectural office of Bolles + Wilson has firmly established itself as an international practice underpinned by thorough research and theoretical discourse. This monograph chronicles a variety of projects alongside more than 25 recent buildings that are surveyed through different chapters that cover such areas as urban planning, projects in different foreign countries, library architecture and specific designs for the Dutch city of Rotterdam. Accompanied by texts from Julia Bolles-Wilson and Peter Wilson, the survey is generously laid out with colour photographs, technical drawings, models and sketches. Works and projects featured include: the Suzuki House, Tokyo; the Masterplan Falkenried, Hamburg; the Spuimarkt Block, The Hague; DGM Quartier, Magdeburg; the Kaldewei Kompetenz Center, Ahlen; the Münster City Library; and the New Luxor Theatre, Rotterdam.”
