Maaskant led the postwar reconstruction of Rotterdam, designing revolutionary, complex, large-scale buildings, such as the Groothandelsgebouw and Euromast, as well as the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel and the Scheveningen Pier in The Hague.

In Hugh Maaskant: Architect of Progress, historian and Maaskant scholar Michelle Provoost orients the architect in an international as well as historical perspective, recounting his work in the context of the optimistic reconstruction of the postwar period as well as the exciting developments of the 1960s and Hollands increasing prosperity throughout that decade. The book features both historical and recent photographs, including a series taken especially for this edition by internationally renowned architectural photographer Iwan Baan.
