H 0 The artificial landscape: contemporary architecture, urbanism, and landscape architecture in the Netherlands.
In The Artificial Landscape, which surveys his recent design work in the Netherlands, which includes architecture, urban design, and landscape architecture as illustrated by such firms as Architetkten Cie., De Nijl, and West 8, Ibelings (20th-Century Urban Design in the Netherlands) covers some of the same ground as Schroder but in quite a different manner. As he points out, the Netherlands is probably the most thoroughly studied, planned, and designed country on Earth. Captioned graphics introduce 134 projects, grouped in conceptual categories, such as "Extreme Logic" and "Hedonistic Landscapes." A separate section consists of essays, speeches, and book excerpts by various authors on aspects of design in the Netherlands. Both books would suit academic libraries supporting relevant departments.
