Architecture in the Netherlands Yearbook 2002-2003Once again this successful annual publication presents a selection of the most memorable Dutch architecture of the past year. In-depth descriptions and a wealth of illustrations document more than 30 projects realized in 2002 including work by Abel Cahen, Claus en Kaan, Diederen Dirrix Van Wylick, Erick van Egeraat associated architects, Karelse Van der Meer, KCAP, Metz & de Pagter, Meyer en Van Schooten, MVRDV, Paul de Ruiter, Sluijmer & Van Leeuwen, Wiel Arets and SeARCH. The book closes with a roundup of the year's major awards, competitions, exhibitions and publications.

In the Yearbook, the editors show how much architecture has become an inseparable component of the culture industry. Design value is steadily taking over from practical value as the hub of our information society. This concern for design has ushered in an endless stream of fascinating buildings clearly destined for the international spotlight. Aided by analyses of over 30 spectacular new buildings, the Dutch government's policy on architecture and the different media strategies wielded by the various players, the Yearbook's editors set out to discover how the present situation was able to arise, and what the opportunities are of moving on beyond design as its own propaganda. Examining the contents of the previous 15 editions of the Yearbook has, in addition, yielded what in effect is an atlas of an imaginary 'Yearbooktopia'.
