Item description for Die Prager Werkbundsiedlung Baba by Stephan Templ...

Bis zum Fall des Eisernen Vorhangs galt die Werkbundsiedlung "Baba" (errichtet 1932) in Prag als Geheimtip. Diese letzte Ausstellungssiedlung ist das Symbol einer ganzen Epoche: Sie gibt ein anschauliches Bild von der architektonischen Moderne in der Tschechischen Republik, der nun seit 1989 auch international Beachtung geschenkt wird. Die 32 Bauten dieser hoch ber Prag gelegenen Siedlung sind heute noch gut erhalten. Architekten dreier Generationen waren hier ttig: die ltere noch vom Kubismus herkommend (Jank, Gocr), die mittlere mit ihren puristisch-funktionalistischen Werken (Linhart, Stary) und die Jungen, die sich mit schwungvollen Formen (Ladislav Zk) bereits der "weien Doktrin" entledigen wollten.Anhand des reichen und unverffentlichten Quellenmaterials analysiert dieses Buch erstmals den architekturhistorischen Stellenwert der Prager Werkbundsiedlung: es thematisiert architektonische Fragen ebenso wie gesellschaftspolitische und dokumentiert die einzelnen Projekte.

Reviews - What do customers think about Die Prager Werkbundsiedlung Baba?

What you've missed knowing about the Werkbund  Feb 22, 2000
The provision of mass housing was one of the most important aspects of architecture during the period between the two world wars, but it is for the great single family houses that the period is perhaps well-known, from Mies's Tugenhat House in Brno, to Corbu's Villa Savoye and Villa Stein, to Loos's Haus Stein in Vienna and Haus Müller in Prague. The collection of 33 houses by the participants in the Czechoslovak Werkbund merit equal scrutiny, and this fine guidebook provides just that. Each of the houses is described, including changes made during Nazi occupation or during the communist period, and brief biographies of the clients are included if know. The architects too are focused, as is the inellectual and social climate of the time. While this data has been available elsewhere, it is with this book that the general public can gain knowledge of this important experiment.
