    Description :

    “Dudok’s most ‘International Style’ work is the twelve-story Erasmus / HBU Building in Rotterdam.”

    “The low wing and diagonal fire stairs enliven it, but the basic composition of the rather bland main building is the beginning of a lack of skill in Dudok’s late work, a matter often remarked upon.”

    “Some of the change, of course, represents a shift to simpler detailing—a change dictated by the building industry's inability to continue providing the special lapidary features that characterized Dudok's best work.”
