Beauty, scale and rhythm
Speaker: Ruud Lammerink
Since the Renaissance, there has hardly been an architect with such a deep faith in scale as Dom Hans van der Laan (1904-1991). In the eyes of Van der Laan, scale is not an isolated feature, but an expression of the divine, an expression of the will of God in nature.
To this day, the church and monastery in Mamelis are silent witnesses of this faith. The lecture ‘Beauty, scale and rhythm’ gives insight into the ideas of this extraordinary architect and presents a number of highlights from his oeuvre.
