Isozaki, Libeskind, Rossi & Johnson Build in 1997 Jan 6, 2001
The second in the series of Bauwelt Berlin Annuals. This book contains the building events which shaped 1997 in Berlin. I use all the Bauwelt books regularly because they are so thorough in their presentation. Plans, sections, construction site photos and interviews or perspectives from the everyday man that humanize the otherwise mechanical process of construction. I look at different projects each time I open the book. The major projects in this book POTSDAMER PLATZ (Renzo Piano, Arata Isozaki), Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum (<--There is also a whole comprehensive book on this building), Foster's Reichstag, Aldo Rossi's Housing, The Phillip Johnson House, SPITTELMARKT, Hotel Adlon (Patzschke, Klotz und Partner, AIC, Ezra Attia and AD Living Design), The "New Suburbs" of Franzoesisch-Buchholz, Neu-Karow, Aalemannufer, Staaken, Rudower Felder and Altglienicke. Don't miss the timeline in the back for the day to day feel of Berlin, and the comprehensive list of new buildings in the second half of the book.
