n 1954 there existed in Amsterdam around 200 playgrounds designed by Dutch architect Aldo van Eyck, which in turn gave him the opportunity to design what is considered one of the most significant buildings in modern architectural history: the Amsterdam Orphanage. Completed in 1960, the building has been visited by numerous architects, among them Buckminster Fuller and Louis Kahn. Every detail, material, and colour of Van Eycks masterpiece, with its multiple pavilions, picturesque domes, and ingeniously linked patios, can be found in this richly illustrated book edited by Christoph Grafe.

For this reason, as well as offering adequate space and infrastructure, it must make a strong, clearly recognizable architectural statement. Over the past couple of decades, new technology and globalization have transformed trade fairs: today they are not so mu...

  • PHARMACIES
    VAN UFFELEN, CHRIS
    Pharmacies constitute a special form of commercial architecture. The market for medicines, which is heavily regulated in most countries, has led to a veritable competition of the “atmosphere of space“, since where product and price can no longer provide a competitive advantage, customer loyalty must be created with other means.
