Product Description

Hans Poelzig: Reflections on His Life and Work

by Julius Posener

Hans Poelzig was not only an architect of genius, he was also - and perhaps more remarkably - an artist whose career stood on the cusp between two centuries, the nineteenth in which he was born, and the twentieth in which he died, leaving us an exceptional legacy which could hardly be overstated. Criticizing German Expressionism yet epitomizing it for many, he thought architecture to be a natural development from the past rather than a creation of new forms. A scholar which was all his life personally acquainted with the artist and the man, Posener delivers a passionate and awe-inspiring account of his extraordinary heritage. 287 pages. 8.25 x 10.25 inches.

Signed. Illustrated with black & white drawings and photographs.

Published by: the Architectural History Foundation and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, NY and MA, 1992.
