Frans van der Werf, `Open Ontwerpen`, 179p. Ill. Uitgeverij 010, Rotterdam 1993. ISBN 90-6450-172-6

This book, titled "Open Designing" is written by an architect who has consistently built 'Support - Infill' projects from 1974 onwards. It contains a wealth of information based on practical experience in the open design of residential architecture. Referring to his works in Papendrecht, Utrecht, Rotterdam, Enschede and Leusden, Frans van der Werf explains not only ways of designing and technical solutions to adaptability, but also the procedural aspects of Open Building.

Unfortunately, the book is only available in the Dutch language. ( frans@vdwerf.nl )
