Of the Dutch architecture bureau Mecanoo, is has been said that it has the ‘power to give ordinary things an unusual experience’, and of its projects that they are ‘pieces of time-bound spatial poems’. Like poetry, Mecanoo’s projects can resonate deep in our mind, generate emotion, conjure up magic, and evoke memory, either personal or collective. Taking this poetic quality as an important focus, this new book offers a completely fresh look at Mecanoo’s work. A surprisingly diverse range of new Mecanoo designs have been completed, ranging from a futuristic arts centre to a pavilion retreat in a historic country estate.
