80. Grand Hotel Gooiland. Hilversum



Dear Bob,

The Grand Hotel Gooiland, finished in 1936, is the last
testament as far as built-work is concerned of Jan
Duiker. The "joie de vivre" of this building has rarely
been surpassed in the best European architecture of
the 20th century according to Kenneth Frampton.

Regards,
R
