Format: Hardcover
This volume documents the development and diversity of contemporary architecture in Germany form 1970 until 1996. It featurs 50 specially chosen buildings, each on a double page with a project description, photograph(s), plan(s), sometimes section; all - in alphabetical order by architect. There are works by Alvar Aalto, Tadao Ando, Gunter Behnisch, Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Walter Gropius, Herman Herzberger, Zaha Hadid, Hollein, Libeskind, Siza, Stirling, et al. Unlike the Paperback Studio series, this book's paper and printing leaves a bit to be desired. The B&W only illustrations are not very crisp, the text type (lettering) is very small and a bit difficult to read, and the paper is yellowish. The book is inferior to "The New German Architecture" by Feldmeyer.
