Vincent Van Duysen: Complete Works
For over two decades, Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen has created a body of work that is at once sublime and rich, minimal yet tactile. In a series of exquisite houses and residences from the Low Countries to America, Van Duysen has reduced living space to its elemental form while using a refined palette of materials that ensure the highest emotional response.
As Ilse Crawford, former editor of Elle Decoration, whose own home was refashioned by Van Duysen, writes in her foreword, “ You are not just impressed by the beauty of the spaces but by the memory of the details and the feeling of the materials.”
Here are more than thirty projects, many accompanied by specially commissioned photographs taken by Alberto Piovano. The book includes tributes by leading international architects David Adjaye and Michael Gabellini, fashion designer Ann Demeulemeester, and furniture designer Patricia Urquoila, all of whom provide insights into Van Duysen's work. This book reveals to the full why he has become such a cult figure in international architecture and design.
