Item description for Gottfried Bohm by Gottfried Bohm, Wolfgang Voigt, Gabiele Wiesemann, Wolfgang Pehnt & Manfred Speidel...

In 1986, when Gottfried Bohm won the Pritzker Prize, the award was only a few years old, but it was already regarded as the greatest international accolade in architecture. Bohm, the first and only German ever to receive the prize, was honored by the Pritzker committee in part for his work from the 1950s and 60s, which was almost exclusively devoted to the construction and reconstruction of churches. Bohm's Pilgrimage Church in Neviges, Germany (1964-68), for example, is a crystalline ecclesiastical building modeled in exposed concrete, and a beautiful example of Bohm's virtuosity. In Bohm's work of this era, the utopian ideas of Expressionist architects, who had dreamed of massive buildings that would generate a sense of community, found a late and surprising outlet in the bosom of the Catholic Church. In later years, Bohm put new and equally surprising accents into home construction, a good example being his work in the Chorweiler district of Cologne (1969-75), as well as public buildings such as the City Hall in Bensberg (1967), which was installed on the remains of a medieval castle. Gottfried Bohm compares and contrasts this influential architect's masterly sketches with photographs of finished buildings. Its essays outline Bohm's career and his larger oeuvre, and a detailed index of works makes it an essential reference.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gottfried Bohm?

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.
