Bolles/Wilson: Recent Buildings and Projects
|Description by publisher: The buildings of Bolles + Wilson leave clear markers in the diffused urban agglomerations. Peter Wilson states, “we attempt to take up one of the principal responsibilities of architecture: to focus, to anchor, to give measure.” The present monograph shows recent buildings and projects from 1993 to 1997 in Munster, Castrop-Rauxel, Hengelo, and Rotterdam, where their New Luxor Theatre is a high point in the urban development program for this harbor-city.
