Item description for Contemporary Architecture in Germany 1970-1996: 50 Buildings by Gerd de Bruyn...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Contemporary Architecture in Germany 1970-1996: 50 Buildings?

Yellowish paper, small type, not crisp illustrations  Mar 19, 2005
This volume documents the development and diversity of contemporary architecture in Germany form 1970 until 1996. It featurs 50 specially chosen buildings, each on a double page with a project description, photograph(s), plan(s), sometimes section; all - in alphabetical order by architect. There are works by Alvar Aalto, Tadao Ando, Gunter Behnisch, Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Walter Gropius, Herman Herzberger, Zaha Hadid, Hollein, Libeskind, Siza, Stirling, et al. Unlike the Paperback Studio series, this book's paper and printing leaves a bit to be desired. The B&W only illustrations are not very crisp, the text type (lettering) is very small and a bit difficult to read, and the paper is yellowish. The book is inferior to "The New German Architecture" by Feldmeyer.
