INSIDE OUTSIDE: PETRA BLAISSE
Category: Monographs / essays architects
The first monograph about the work of the renowed interior and landscape designer Petra Blaisse is newly available (reprint). Internationally recognized as one of today's most important and pioneering landscape and interior designers, the Dutch designer Petra Blaisse continues to define new and increasingly ambitious roles for landscape and interior design. In contrast to architecture's static and immutable severity she devises flexible and flowing solutions that interconnect interior and exterior. Her designs are often poetic and colourful, but they consistently provide astute and elegant solutions to complex technical problems. Blaisse contributes to important projects in Europe, Asia and the USA both as an independent designer and in association with urban planners and architects such as Tim Ronalds, SANAA/Kazuyo Sejima, Macken & Macken, OMA/Rem Koolhaas and Michael Maltzan. This volume provides extensive documentation of key projects, features the designer herself in conversation with the editor Kayoko Ota, and includes essays by a range of experts, making it an indispensable source of inspiration for architects, engineers and designers, as well as providing a new impulse for the whole field of architecture.
