Book Description

25 May 1993
The reunification of Germany has propelled the country to the forefront of the European community, and has generated an immense amount of new building projects, bringing a new focus and clarity to German architecture. This lavishly illustrated volume presents a showcase of the latest and best of these works.
The architects featured range from internationally known practitioners, such as Josef Paul Kleihues (Pre- and Early History Museum in Frankfurt), O. M. Ungers (Town Portal Buildings in Frankfurt, Baden Regional Library in Karlsruhe), Daniel Libeskind (Berlin Museum), Gottfried Bohm (Deutsche Bank in Luxembourg), and Gunter Behnisch (German Postal Museum and German Federal Bank, both in Frankfurt), to architects who have gained great renown within Germany to young and rising talents. The wide variety of projects presented includes Meinhard von Gerkan's Airport Terminal in Stuttgart and Elbschlucht Complex in Hamburg, Karljosef Schattner's varied projects in Eichstatt, and Christoph Langhof's Pressehaus in Berlin. The comprehensive essays examine Germany's architectural history and postwar urban planning, as well as the ramifications of reunification.

3.0 out of 5 stars The new architecture is like the old McDonalds. 11 Feb 2000
By Keating Kilpatric - Published on Amazon.com
Dieses Buch ist alle moderne Architektur. Die alte Architektur ist nicht hier. Das ist zu falsch. Die alten deutschen Architekten konnten aufbauen. Sie bauten feste Gebäude mit klassischer Art auf. Die neuen Gebäude sind Trödel. Deutsche Architektur ist jetzt wie McDonalds.
