Ornament and Identity is the successor of the well-received At Work, a publication by renowned Rotterdam based architecture firm Neutelings Riedijk. In their new book they convincingly demonstrate that buildings with a powerful expression create new local identities in a globalised world.
In twelve themed chapters Moiré, Image, Seam, Emblem, Letter, Pattern, Frame, Ridge, Grid, Diamond, Relief and Filigree, readers are guided on the exploration of the connection between form, meaning and contemporary ornaments.
Realised buildings, intriguing scale models, material samples and unique ornaments designed by Neutelings Riedijk Architects illustrate the craftsmanship and their search for expression and identity.
