Works in Architecture, Paul Robbrecht & Hilde Daem

Front Cover

Lundion, Uitgeverij, 1998 - Architecture - 159 pages
Paul Robbrecht and Hilde Daem's work is both multifaceted and multilayered. The architects stand for the autonomy of an architectural order, while at the same time continually exploring its boundaries by setting up a confrontation with visual art. The streamlined simplicity of the modernist idiom does not preclude an intense preoccupation with history, the environment and building typology. In a detailed essay Steven Jacobs addresses the complexity of Robbrecht and Daem's oeuvre. His essay focuses on the relationship between architects and artists, such as Juan Munoz, Isa Genzken, Raoul de Keyser, Gerhard Richter, Ulrich Ruckriem and Cristina Iglesias. Alongside Steven Jacobs' essay the book includes a conversation between Paul Robbrecht and Farshid Moussavi, a letter from Juan Munoz, an illustrated dossier with a commentary on nine projects and an inventory of the complete work.
