P.J.H. Cuypers Complete Works

D. Broekhuizen, contribution to ‘List of works’, in: H. Berens (ed.), P.J.H. Cuypers (1827-1921). The complete works, NAi publishers, Rotterdam 2007, p. 141-382.

Architect Pierre Cuypers (1827-1921) designed the Rijksmuseum and Central Station in Amsterdam. His many churches are widely associated with the image of Dutch cities and villages. With his hundreds of buildings, Cuypers not only left a quantitative mark on the built environments in the Netherlands, but he also established a model for the modern architecture firm. This book documents Cuypers’ complete oeuvre. A selection of essays sheds light on Cuypers’ position and the significance of his work. In his contribution, Dolf Broekhuizen analyses twentyfive projects designed by this famous Dutch architect, for example the RC Church of St. Joseph (1887, Groningen), the wrought-iron fountain in memory of the catholic King Willem II (1885, Binnenhof, The Hague), and the restoration of Castle De Haar and Village of Haarzuilens (1891-1912, Haarzuilens/Utrecht).
