Reviews - What do customers think about Bauhaus: 1919-1933?

Today's Bauhaus  Jan 25, 2007
Many art historians consider Bauhaus to be the crucible where architectural modernism was forged. There are many iconic images of Bauhaus architecture that enthusiasts know intimately. (i.e. Barcelona Pavillion, School at Dessau, Brno, etc.) Most of those iconic images were made in the 1930's and they show these buildings at their most pristine and majestic.

What makes Hans Engles' "Bauhaus" interesting is that in 2001, he revistited and had photogaphed most of the surviving Bauhaus buildings. It is simply fascinating to see these iconic buildings in a contemporary setting. These readily accesable images bring these famous structures down to a earth. The other nice thing about this book is to learn how many of these buildings have been preserved and often times returned to their original conception.

In the United States, we are fortunate that the German publishing companies like Prestel, Taschen and Koneman are translating many of their architecture works into English. These German architectural books are some of the most exciting and reasonably priced books being produced today. If you are interested in seeing what Bauhaus looks like today, this is the book for you. Highly recommended.
