ARCHITECTURAL QUALITY: A NOTE ON ARCHITECTURAL POLICY. Tjeerd Dijkstra. LM Publishers, Arnhem, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 32 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9789460224232 In English.
Publisher's description: In 1985, in his role as chief government architect in the Netherlands, Tjeerd Dijkstra wrote a note on the concept of architectural quality and the criteria that, in his opinion, could be applied when assessing building plans. Some thirty years have elapsed and there is still a need for clarity about the concept of architectural quality. Here, Tjeerd Dijkstra describes which concepts play an important part in the definition of architectural quality. After a reflection on these concepts, he enters into the procedures of monitoring and assessment. The proposed criteria and procedures are usable as a theoretical background for all those who are concerned with architectural quality, not only in governmental institutions, but for private clients and interested citizens as well.
