RESUMEN: "For the present publication the architect opened his substantial archive and provided unpublished original texts, plans and photographs. All main buildings and projects from 1944 to the present day are documented in depth and an introduction by Vincent Ligtelijn explains clearly and lucidly the ideas and the design principles which underlie the conception of his buildings." "Also included is a preface by Joseph Rykwert and texts by Henk Engel, Herman Hertzberger, Peter Smithson and Francis Strauven which pay tribute to the unique and multifaceted nature of Van Eyck and his work."--BOOK JACKET.
