Item description for Egon Eiermann/Sep Ruf, German Pavilions, Brussels World Fair 1958: Series: Opus 62 (Opus) by Immo Boyken, Heinrich Heidersberger, Georg Pollich, Eberhard Troger, Ellyn Childs Allison & Barnett Newman...
The German Pavilions were the actual event at the 1958 Brussels World Fair, because what appeared as an oasis of modesty among the typical exhibition fairground of bizarre sensationalism was precisely what would not have been expected of economic miracle Germany: no showing off or pomposity, just architecture distinguished by its reticence and the refined simplicity of the architectural resources, and by the happy combination of men who created it, all so similar in the nature of their thinking: Egon Eiermann and Sep Ruf as architects, Walter Rossow as landscape and garden planner, and Hans Schwippert responsible for the exhibition programme.
