This book is published by Jap Sam Books in cooperation with Podium voor Architectuur Haarlemmermeer en Schiphol

The Office for Architecture Drost + van Veen in Rotterdam looks at landscape as their primary source of inspiration for their designs. These designs either strongly merge into the context of their landscape or really stand out like a beacon. Next to this conceptual approach, materialization is quite an important aspect of the working method for these two architects, whom both were originally educated as interior designers. Their bridges at business park 'De President' in the South of International Airport Schiphol won the Architecture Prize Haarlemmermeer 2009.

This book shows us a selection of projects, giving a clear vision of Drost + van Veen's method of working; as an introduction the architects tell us about their approach and inspiration in an interview with Harm Tilman, editor of chief of de Architect. Marieke Berkers and Dorine van Hoogstraten place their work in a broader context of international developments. The magnificent projects shown in this book demonstrate how landscape has an increasing role in architecture.

Contributors: Harm Tilman, Dorine van Hoogstraten, Marieke Berkers, Justa van Bergen, Mathias Lehner, Simone Drost and Evelien van Veen.
