Inhaltsangabe: In recent years, the importance of architecture in Germany has surged. There is hardly any other country in the world where internationally acclaimed architects including Tadao Ando, Richard Meier, James Stirling and Norman Foster to name a few have erected so many major structures. And, in turn, the buildings by German architects, e.g., Gottfried Bohm, Thomas Herzog, Josef Paul Kleihues and Oswald Mathias Ungers, are meriting increasing international attention.
With its selection of 50 buildings, this handsome volume documents the development and diversity of contemporary architecture in Germany since 1970. It deliberately assumes the character of an introduction and therefore is aimed not only at a specialized readership but also, and above all, at culturally interested readers at home and abroad.
Gerd de Bruyn opens the work with a sketch of German architectural history since 1945 and Gerd Zimmermann presents the special position of architecture in the former GDR.
The entries in the main section of this reference work are ordered alphabetically, by architect, and feature 50 specially chosen buildings, each on a double page with photographs, ground plans and a project description.
