Largely under-appreciated, this comprehensive study of German expressionist architecture looks at structures both realized and visionary. With historical perspectives, author Pehnt pays respects to these outlier architects and designers with great Utopian vision, contextualizing them within the larger architectural movements, including Italian Futurism and the school of Amsterdam.
Featuring copious imagery of several works including Bruno Taut's crystalline Glass Pavilion of 1914 and Mendelsohn's Einstein Tower at Potsdam.
Soft cover with black and white photographs and illustrations throughout.
Condition: Lightly lived in, with a handwritten note on the front inside cover.
Measures ~8"x10". 231 pages.
