The Dutch interior and landscape designer Petra Blaisse is an outstanding creator who insists on new and more ambitious roles for landscape and interior architecture. On her own and in collaboration with city planners and architects such as Tim Ronalds, SANAA/Kazuyo Sejima, Macken & Macken, OMA/Rem Koolhaas, Michael Maltzan. Blaisse intervenes in important projects in Europe, Asia and the United States.
Blaisse's work challenges architecture's rigidity and severity by developing more mutable and fluid solutions, both inside and outside. This is how Blaisse turns what is often treated as an afterthought into an almost overpowering experience.
The full range of her work will be introduced to the public in this book. It contains documentation of several important projects, a conversation between the editor Kayoko Ota and Petra Blaisse, and essays by several renowned authors. The book will be illuminating to architects, engineers and designers of all disciplines and has the potential to give new impetus to the whole architectural field.
