|Samenvatting||From 1910 to 1929 Frans Johan Louwrens Ghijsels was one of the most prominent architects of the Dutch East Indies. Co-founder of the well-known AIA Bureau, he designed a large number of much-talked-about buildings, many of which still adorn the streets of cities such as Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta and Surabaya. His oeuvre included offices, hotels, churches, private houses and public housing projects, swimming pools, schools and shops. Even though some of them have been demolished over the years, buildings such as Station Kota, the Hotel des Indes and the KPM, Internatio and Nillmij offices are regarded as an important part of the cultural heritage of both Indonesia and The Netherlands. This book presents an exhaustive survey of Ghijsels' work. The fact that almost all his personal archives have survived makes it possible to illustrate his work from the first sketches to the finished buildings by means of some 185 original drawings, blueprints and rare photographs.|
