Architect Herman Zeinstra’s work cannot easily be described by a single style. This results primarily from the fundamental questions he poses in each assignment and his refusal to settle for routine solutions. Brickwork is used in a practical manner, as a supporting tool, and the material enables Zeinstra to find alternative paths in architecture and construction, and to articulate a design that suits the contemporary situation. This impressive monograph of Zeinstra’s practice offers an honest and in-depth look at his methods and body of work. Besides an essay by Christoph Grafe and an interview, it features many built works in Amsterdam and other Dutch cities.
