Item description for Gottfried Bohm (Studio Paperback) by Wolfgang Pehnt & Michael Robinson...
Gottfried Bhm, Pritzker Prize laureate, is one of the most important post-WWII European architects. Famous for his churches, including the church of pilgrimage in Neviges, Bhm's oeuvre also encompasses the full range of contemporary commissions from single family housing to urban planning, or, for example, the Deutsche Bank building in Luxembourg. His buildings demonstrate sensitivity to context and place, whilst asserting a distinctive character and unmistakeable style. This documentation of Bhm's most important works is supplemented by a catalogue of works, bibliography and biographical data.

Copiously illustrated review of 42 major works Oct 31, 2005
This is a concise and copiously illustrated paperback survey on only 176 pages of all major buildings and projects from 1947 to 1997 published under ISBN: 3764355980 by Birkhäuser (Basel...) and ISBN: 0817955980 by Birkhäuser (Boston) in English and German side by side. Following 35 pages with analysis of the architect's style, each of the presented 42 works is headed by a description from just a few lines to over a page long followed by illustrations from one to several depending on work's scope. All of approx. 120 only B&W multi-picture illustrations - many of them technical (plans, sections, sketches, elevations, etc.), but also B&W photos of a good quality - are well balanced, superbly crisp and perfectly legible. On several pages at the end, there are: a biography, selected bibliography, list of works, etc. Like all from the Studio Paperback series, this book is solid among architectural monographs even of a bigger size. Similar to smaller books from the Works and Projects series published by Gustavo Gili (GG) in English and Spanish.
