Gaston Eysselinck (1907-1953) is a fascinating individual of the Belgian avant-garde architecture. Masterpieces like his own house in Ghent (1930-1931) and the building of the Post and Telegraphic Office in Ostend (1945-1952) are highlights in the Belgian architecture of the 20ieth century. When he’s only 23 years old he builds an exceptional corner house in Ghent; a house that links up with the examples of the ‘International Style’ in Europe. For his house he created tubular steel furniture in 1932, now part of the collection of the Design museum Ghent.
This is the first volume in a series of concise monographs about striking realisations of renowned architects.
