In this book, Christian Brinkerif paints a portrait of Hermann Hertzberger, one of the most important Dutch architects. She discusses his vision and work as an architect, as well as his life. Hermann Hertzberger is considered one of the most important Dutch architects. Among its most famous buildings are Fredenburg, Central Beherr, the Schas Theatre, and the Ministry of Social Affairs and its schools.
But it is not only his work that is groundbreaking, but also his vision of great importance, especially at this time. It focuses on what people need: in addition to security, there is also a view, as well as a place of their own, as well as the feeling that they are part of a larger whole. As an architect, he wants to create the spatial conditions for living together, and his way of looking and thinking is connected with sociology, the profession of writer Christian Brinkrev. In Hermann Hertzberger’s Space, Brinkerif paints a portrait of Herzberger, discussing his vision and work as an architect, his background, the neighborhood he grew up in, and the people who shaped and nurtured him.
The Hermann Hertzberger space is a meeting between architecture and sociology, between people who have known each other for more than half a century and who reconnected ten years ago.
