OASE #83: Architecture on Commission
David de Bruijn, Job Floris, Christoph Grafe & Gus Tielens with Madeleine Maaskant (ed.)
This issue of OASE features the complex and dynamic relationship of architecture and commissions, and explores the influence of the commissioner on the way in which buildings or urban ensembles take shape. This issue explores the creative impulses of the clients, and how their social outlooks have influenced the development of architectonic cultures. This edition also raises the question that in an age when both clients and architects must reflect on their role and responsibility, a re-reading of the history of architecture from the perspective of the commission is more than necessary.
