Item description for 20th Century Architectural Guide - Germany by Winfried Nerdinger...
For decades, no single volume on the market covered 20th century architecture for the whole of Germany. The present guide redresses this gap.
450 buildings and ensembles, selected for their architectural importance and quality, are presented and major streams of architectural developments and new trends are examined. The famous buildings by the great modernists are here, of course, but less-known regional structures, architecture under the National Socialists, and postwar reconstruction after 1945 are covered as well. A broad and multi-facetted picture emerges. Housing estates and urban planning schemes are also considered. Special attention is devoted to key projects of the last years -- among them Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum in Berlin and the much-praised Modern Art Gallery in Munich by Herzog & de Meuron. The result is an impressively comprehensive and yet highly current reference work.
The wealth of examples and meticulous presentation prime this expansive survey to become a standard reference guide in the future.
