Goos van der Veen

Goos van der Veen

With a few exceptions, almost all recreational interventions in the landscape date from after the Second World War. Notable examples are the European ski resorts like Flaine and Avoriaz, which were designed in the 1960s and built according to a clear plan. Other ski resorts were more Wild West operations, as the proliferation of chalet-like buildings testified. In THE SKIABLE LANDSCAPE Goos van der Veen shows us the radically reshaped mountain landscape and its users.
