‘Searching For Space’ is a cinematic portrait of Herman Hertzberger, one of the most important architects in The Netherlands. Conscientious and socially driven, Hertzberger has maintained that, whether designing a house, school or factory, it is not the building’s architecture that concerns him but the human life and activity that will inhabit it. The profile investigates key questions around Hertzberger’s life and work, such as his influences and inspirations, how his personal convictions manifest in his designs, and how he envisions his architecture contributing to effective society-building. The accompanying booklet contains illuminating texts by director Kees Hin and architect Maarten Kloos.
