Dirk Jan Postel: Transparencies
Dirk Jan Postel is an architect complementing the mainstream of Dutch architects known as the 'Superdutch' architects. This book examines architectural realism by emphasizing the importance of authenticity, meaning, materials, space and emptiness. Dirk Jan Postel's work illustrates the daily activities of a professional office in a struggle with artistic autonomy. The book explores important and contemporary design themes, in a direct juxtaposition of modern architecture within the existing urban fabric, or the themes of tradition side-by-side with modernity.
