People Place Purpose is a richly illustrated monograph on the work of this internationally recognised Netherlands-based practice, with visual documentation of 17 different projects, including their Library of Birmingham and the office Villa Maliebaan 16 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

The book explores the practice’s development, and the key issues that inform its work: looking at how individual buildings gain identity in a globalised world via use of texture and colour and a connection out to the surrounding landscape.
