Mercatorfonds / Robbrecht en Daem architecten — An Architectural Anthology

This publication, ‘An Architectural Anthology’, presents a comprehensive overview of the oeuvre produced by Robbrecht en Daem architecten. Like a symphonic poem, it brings together a variety of works and voices. It was conceived as a means of look­ing at the firm’s work from the early 1980s to the present day. The book shows how the practise has grown systematically and how it is defined by a number of themes that permeate its body of work. The anthology presents material from the firm’s archive that has not previously been pub­lished: scale models, working plans and sketches, to which have been added recently drafted plans and photographs of completed projects taken by renowned international photographers. The publication contains reflective entries written by the architects themselves as well as by like-minded intellectuals and critics. These are being anthologized for the first time, thus making them accessible to an international audience.
