Item description for Jacques Schader: Freudenberg by C Ed. Lichtenstein...
One of the most important works of 20th century Swiss architecture, the Freudenberg canton school, designed by Jacques Schader in the 1960s, resounds with visual power. Forging a meaningful link between educational postulates and architectural formulation, the school's physical and pediological structures are equally models of openness, transparency, and scope. This publication combines a DVD tour of the building's complex layout, conversations with the architect and other experts, and a book of structural plans and other informative documents.

modern masterpiece-with DVD /book format alerts Jun 20, 2007
This is a tiny book on a great master work. I had never heard of this amazing complex, and was intriged by the book description. I can happily report that the design is indeed masterful, but there are some important things to mention about the format of the product. The publishers have been somewhat overly-insistent (IMO) on the idea that the complex should be understood in motion, and so have provided a very high-quality DVD in tandem with the book. They have even registered the timing of the DVD with the pages of the book, in the somewhat amusing expectation that someone should be attentively paging through the book along with the DVD. Of course a high quality DVD is great, but I sincerely wish the publishers had had the good sense to make the Book A BOOK, a larger format book, one that would do justice to Schader's great architecture, and still provide the DVD. A higher price and so on, but please a LARGER format!! The book is DVD size!!
