In this book, architectural specialist Bart Verschaffel explores numerous realised and unrealised projects of Charles Vandenhove. Not only does he investigate the way in which Vandenhove unites his modern and functional architecture with the historical city but Verschaffel also focuses on his cooperation with artists and his iconic postmodernism. For the first time we get an insight in Vandenhove's unique working methods by means of sketches that have never been published before, plans and photos.
Bart Verschaffel studied Philosophy and medieval studies at Leuven University. He teaches architectural theory and architectural criticism at the Ghent University (Arcitecture & Urban Planning) and has already published numerous monographs.
