Marie-Jose Van Hee Architecten - More Home, More Garden
The book is conceived in such a way that it offers the broadest and most comprehensive overview of her oeuvre: sketches, renovations, new constructions, competitions, furniture and bridge designs.
The book introduces an extensive series of sketches because the drawings embody her first powerful ideas for a design. Next to the introduction by Katrien Vandermarliere, essays by architects/critics Helen Thomas, Javier Fernandéz Contreras and Christian Kieckens were included.
The architect pays a lot of attention to the implantation of her buildings in the local context and nature plays an important role in her private homes (inner gardens). That is why this aspect was illustrated richly with photos.
To emphasize the human aspect – after all, a house is inhabited by people – three testimonials from residents were recorded. They explain why they deliberately chose this architect, describe their experiences during the construction process and why they are so satisfied with their new home.
Photographers Michel Hendrickx and David Grandorge give a personal impression of Marie-José Van Hee’s architecture, artist Kris Martin and photographer Dirk Braeckman also made a special contribution to the book.
A project list of the realized buildings forms the final piece of this monograph.
