'Without seeing there is no intellect', this citation forms the basis of Hans van der Laan's (1904-1991) theory of creating architecture. This monograph provides one of the most complete documents on the work of this Dutch Benedictine monk who has inspired many contemporary architects including John Pawson. There are very few instances in which twentieth century architecture has reached such heights of austere beauty as those attained by Van der Laan through his approaching design as a metaphysical exercise in consistency.
