The popularity and influence of the Dutch's sensibility in architecture has grown to a global force. A whole generation of young Dutch architects - whose work is characterized by inventiveness, unexpected use of new materials and dynamic form - have created a body of work over the 1990s that is resonating in architecture schools and publications around the world, and that has been described as the "Second Modernity". This title presents the work of 14 leading studios in the Netherlands, featuring recent projects from each one accompanied by an analytical text.
