Item description for Idea and Form - Houses by Szyszkowitz+Kowalski by Karin Wilhelm...

Das hier vorgestellte Verstndnis vom Bauen als einer Praxis der Sinngebung teilen die Architekten mit Konzeptionren des Einfamilienhauses wie Hans Scharoun oder Frank Lloyd Wright. Das Privathaus wird als Experimentierfeld fr differenzierte Raumkonzeptionen aufgefasst. Im analytischen Teil des Buches thematisiert die renommierte Kunsthistorikerin und Architekturtheoretikerin Karin Wilhelm die konzeptionellen Leitbilder als Grundlagen dieser Architektur ebenso wie die Gestik der Formensprache. Im Mittelpunkt steht der Umgang mit der Verschiedenartigkeit der Nutzer, in denen sich die soziale und die individuelle Dimension der Bauaufgabe zeigt. Im dokumentierenden Teil werden die zwischen 1973 und 2002 entstandenen Huser mit vollstndigen, mastabsgerechten Grundrissen und ausgewhlten Skizzen und Fotos dargestellt. Es entsteht eine eindrucksvolle Besttigung dafr, dass "die Sehnsucht nach dem Paradies in dem Phnomen Architektur eingeschlossen werden kann ..." (Karla Kowalski).
