The book Aldo van Eyck. The Shape of Relativity is the first monograph on Aldo van Eyck, an architect whose poetic vision has exerted a far-reaching influence on architectural thinking since the Second World War.

The Shape of Relativity is the story of an eventful career and an intensive study of an oeuvre. Far from limiting itself to architecture, this book deals primarily with the architect's ideas. It traces the roots of his thinking to early childhood, throwing light on his early passion for poetry, in turn related to the classical thinking of his father the poet P.N. van Eyck.

It recounts his discovery of the twentieth-century avant-garde and of archaic cultures while in Zurich and Paris. It develops his role in Cobra movement and in 'de 8 en Opbouw', in international CIAM, and the dissident Team 10, and further in architectural education in Amsterdam and Delft.
