The Marine Etablissement: New Terrain for Central Amsterdam presents the studio of the ninth Yale Edward P. Bass Distinguished Visiting Architecture Fellowship taught by Isaäc Kalisvaart, CEO of MAB Development, with Alexander Garvin, Kevin D. Gray, and Andrei Harwell of the Yale faculty. The studio proposed designs for the Marine Etablissement, Amsterdam’s historic closed military installation for over 350 years, which is currently undergoing a plan to open for varied and public uses.

The book includes an interview with Isaäc Kalisvaart and an introduction by Alexander Garvin, an essay on broad economic environment and financial feasibility of the design proposals by Kevin D. Gray; Erik Go, head of Studio MAB, and Hans-Hugo Smit, Senior Market Analyst at MAB on the nature of collaboration between designers and developers; and Liesbeth Jansen, project director of Marineterrein Amsterdam and Maarten Pedroli of Linkeroeve on the latest developments now occurring there.
