Inside Outside

Petra Blaisse

2007, NAi Publishers



The Dutch interior and landscape designer Petra Blaisse is an outstanding creator who insists on new and more ambitious roles for landscape and interior architecture. Blaisse’s work challenges architecture’s rigidity and severity by developing more mutable and fluid solutions, both inside and outside. This is how Blaisse turns what is often treated as an afterthought into an almost overpowering experience. 

The full range of her work is introduced to the public in Inside Outside . It contains documentation of several important ­projects, a conversation between the editor Kayoko Ota and Petra Blaisse, and essays by several renowned authors.


Hardcover: 504 pages

6.6 x 1.6 x 9.5 inches
