Description
J.B. Bakema (1914-1981) was one of the foremost post-war Dutch architects and played an important role as designer, theorist, teacher and populariser of his profession. His wide-ranging interest in the built environment (from chair to city), his firm belief in the social significance of architecture and urban design, and his international orientation make him a fitting inspiration for a fellowship intended for research capable of opening up new perspectives on the design, use and perception of the built environment.
