Mels Crouwel’s Book List

Just a selection—old and new.

7 books
Reyner Banham

Especially good for the work of Archigram—the most beautiful drawing is “Walking City” by Ron Herron.

Willy Boesiger Editor

I borrowed this set of books from my father, Wim Crouwel, and read them thoroughly. Everything has already been invented by this genius architect.

Mark Girouard

During my studies I made a trip to visit all the completed buildings and sites of non-completed works by James Stirling. It was also the first time I saw Norman Foster’s work.

Franz Schulze

The argument with the client of Mies’s Farnsworth House is particularly intriguing and shocking. I have visited the house—incredibly beautiful.

Rem Koolhaas
Bruce Mau

Nice to browse through the images. Content and form are one. Beginning of too many thick books.

Deyan Sudjic

A great combination of architects and work assembled by Deyan Sudjic. I have drawn a lot of inspiration from this book.

Anatole Kopp

Still modern.
