Wiel Arets-Bas Princen

Edited by John Bezold. Text by Ludovic Balland

This book encapsulates a journey throughout the life of 12 buildings, from construction to inhabitation, by architect Wiel Arets, as experienced by artist Bas Princen. The acclaimed architect Wiel Arets (born 1955) is also known as a designer, author and educator, and is the Dean of the College of Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. Wiel Arets Architects (WAA), which was founded in 1983, has branches in Amsterdam, Maastricht, and Zürich. The architecture within the book's pages emanates from an unexpected lens, to those familiar with Arets' work; columns seem to be composed of trees; fritted surfaces resemble abstract paintings; technical spaces replicate sculptural silhouettes. The photographs by Bas Princen not only capture the atmosphere of the 12 buildings, but also convey the impact and powerful symbolism of architecture in its most primeval sense-as protective shelter.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Pin-Up

Elias Redstone

Even though he is working with spaces created by a single practice, Princen's photographs remain alluring and atomospheric, making it hard to distinguish between construction sites and finished buildings, all the while challenging viewers' sense of authenticity, fiction, and reality. With this beautifully crafted, 166-page book, Princen has yet again proved himself to be one of the most interesting documenters of our built world.
