A new digital study room on the work of the Dutch Benedictine monk and architect Dom Hans van der Laan (1904-1991) was launched. It guides you through his theory on the three architectonic scales and his own proportional series of the plastic number. Besides, it shows several practical examples to explore and to become fully skilled in understanding Dom van der Laan’s design methods, to learn about architecture and space in general, and to make all these thoughts your own by drawing.

The website and its content are developed by Caroline Voet, Faculty of Architecture, KU Leuven, in collaboration with the Van der Laan Archives and the Van der Laan Foundation.
