Chassé Park | Breda | NL

Collective urban landscape as a campus.

This richly illustrated architecture book describes the development of Chassé Park in Breda and the philosophy behind this internationally acclaimed project. Vary rarely does a Dutch city have an opportunity to develop such a large vacant piece of land in its historical centre. The master plan for Chassé Park was designed by Rem Koolhaas and worked out by Xaveer de Geyter and West 8. Its point of departure is the campus model, which combines urban living with openness. Characteristic of this model is the varied assortment of buildings, which are grouped separately in the landscape but form a whole thanks to the unifying green space.

The book zooms in on the different types of residential buildings, the cultural facilities, the eight-hectare municipal park and the unusual, huge underground parking garage designed by OMA. Chassé Park Breda NL is an architecture book not to be missed, not only because of the beautiful design by Battery Battery and the extraordinary architectural photography by Rene de Wit, but also the enthralling story it tells of the thinking behind the international success of Breda’s campus model.
