Josef Paul Kleihues: Works 1981-1995

Добавить в корзину
This second volume of Hatje Cantz's Josef Paul Kleihues catalogue raisonne encompasses the most active years of this prominent German architect's career, from 1981 to 1995. Kleihues (1933-2004) was the head of the highly respected Internationale Bauausstellung (International Architectural Show, IBA) in Berlin from 1979 to 1987; following German reunification, he was arguably the most influential architect in the re-envisioning of the capital, and his concept of "critical reconstruction" influenced an entire generation of architects. Among his many buildings of note are the Regent Hotel (formerly the Four Seasons Hotel) at the Gendarmenmarkt, and his tower, the Kantdreieck, with its famous "shark fin" on the roof. Kleihues has received international recognition for his museum buildings in particular, such as the redesigned Deichtorhalle, the Hamburger Bahnhof and the new building of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
