Herman Hertzberger’s Lessons for Students in Architecturewas first published in 1991, as an elaborated version of lectures he had given since 1973 at Delft University of Technology. It presents a broad spectrum of subjects and designs, with practical experience and evaluation of the use of these buildings serving as a leitmotif. This immensely successful book has gone through many reprints and has also been published in Japanese, German, Italian, Portuguese, Taiwanese, Dutch, Greek, Chinese, French, Polish and Persian. More than 750 illustrations give a broad insight into Hertzberger’s ‘library’ and a stimulating impression of the influences and sources of inspiration of one of the Netherlands' major postwar architects.

This is the first architectural related book that I read as student in architecture, and I found it inspiring, absorbing, and, of course, easy-to-read. Herman Hertzberger used neat words to open a whole new world for me, about that I am deeply grateful.
