Propelled into the limelight by the success of Rem Koolhaas, Dutch architecture is achieving popularity and influence across the globe. Fostered by a cultural interest in architecture (and a government willing to support it), the Netherlands is producing a generation of architects whose work is characterized by inventiveness, whimsy, creative use of materials, and dynamic formal experimentation. Koolhaas and a subsequent generation of Dutch designers routinely get the most sought-after commissions and are among the most widely published in the world. This small yet extremely influential handful of practitioners is shaping the future direction of architecture.

A phone-book-size collection, "SuperDutch features all of the key figures in Dutch architecture today. Their work is presented through detailed drawings and stunning photography.
