This book gathers together projects and theoretical reflections immortalized through exacting, oversized perspective views, snapshots, photographic sequences and architectural ideograms in felt pen. This is how architect and theorist Wiel Arets ÔfreezesÕ his thoughts, fixing nascent ideas onto paper. The book opens with an essay by Kenneth Frampton, while previously unpublished hand sketches and coloured pencil perspectives fill the pages. Wiel ARETS, former director of Berlage Institute and currently Dean of the Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture, is known for his academic progressive research and hybrid design solutions. He has taught in many universities and designed numerous important buildings, including the Accademy of Art and Architecture in Maastricht and the university library of Utrecht. The collection of Inspiration and Process in Architecture compiles individual monographs (divided in two sections, Writings and Drawings) approaching the design process of different international architects, star-architects, young talents, great designers to give a full comprehensive view of the manual approach of the creative process.
