711. Abdij St. Benedictusberg. Vaals















Dear Timo,

The extension of the Saint-Benedict Abbey near Vaals
is considered by many one of the masterpieces of Dutch
20th-century architecture. The architect, Hans van der
Laan, was an extraordinary Benedictine monk, who lived
and worked in this Abbey. He also discovered in 1928
the system of proportion of the Plastic Number that he
later applied in the design of his buildings.

Sincerely,
R
