20 Days 17 Hours Ago

Today's book is the well-crafted work catalogue "James Stirling Michael Wilford and Associates: Buildings and Projects 1975-1992", published in 1994 by Hate Cantz. Not much needs to be said about the work of the British Pritzker awardee who passed away too early in 1992. His work phase between the mid-70s and early 90s is characterized by a distinctive Postmodernism (that's not as excessively pronounced as in the case of other contemporaries like Robert A.M. Stern). The book nicely documents each project in photos and drawings that illustrate the intrinsic complexity of his architecture, e.g. in the case of the Stuttgart State Gallery. With postmodern architecture entering an age that makes its buildings potential heritage objects it is high time to revisit this divisive period. Even I as a prone opponent of postmodernism have certainly learned to appreciate at least some of the buildings.

So excited to be going to ICONIC with these ladies @carlywoodhouse_mindfulthymes @heidioilymama . . . #iconic #workcatalogue #entrepreneurialwoman #celebrateyou #celebrate #womanredefined #badassentrepreneur #empoweredwomenempowerwomen

New in: „Max Kaus - Werkverzeichnis der Gemälde“, edited by Ursula Schmitt-Wischmann and published in 1990 by Nicolai Verlag. Max Kaus (1891-1977) was, and I don’t mean it disrespectfully, a second row expressionist painter and graphic artist who studied under Erich Heckel and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and himself was professor at different art schools in Berlin before and after WWII. From 1920 until 1924 Kaus was a member of the Freie Secession in Berlin where he befriended Otto Mueller and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, two artists whose influence on Kaus’ work can be felt very clearly during these Secession years. With the seize of power of the Nazis Kaus’ life got increasingly tense and in 1937 his works were removed from museums. After the war his works were predominantly inspired by his travels to Italy and the German islands where Kaus painted highly sensual land and cityscapes that oscillate between visual impression and schematic reduction. It is nonetheless his portraits that Kaus is mainly known for: portrait paintings are omnipresent in each of his work phases and show a painter who is not so much interested in the psychological dimension of the portrait but the integration of the individual into the painting‘s overall composition. Ursula Schmitt-Wischmann‘s work catalogue features all known paintings by Max Kaus and offers an easily accessible overview of the painter‘s complete works. A biographical sketch is also included and draws a brief but very informative portrait of the artist. Two but major downsides of the book are that only some of the paintings are featured with color illustrations and the individual entries’ provenances are rather superficial. These disappointments are only softened by the fact that there is no other work catalogue available. - #maxkaus #painter #artist #expressionism #germanartist #modernart #artbook #arthistory #workcatalogue #catalogueraisonne #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookaholic #booklover #bibliophile #instabook #bookblogger #newbook

One lucky find: the self-published work catalogue of architect Konny Schmitz (1925-2010), a very interesting postwar architect mainly active in the Saarland. Unfortunately the information about the book are as sparse as they are about the architect: no publication date and no additional information about its author. All I know is that Konny Schmitz at the age of 76 completed his doctoral thesis at Technical University Berlin and during the 1950s and 1960s designed a number of highly interesting churches for the Trier diocese. A second focal point of his work was the construction of hospitals, a topic that he also dealt with in his dissertation. The present work catalogue collects Schmitz’s works from the 1950s and 1960s and was probably intended to serve as a brochure for clients since it contains detailed specifications of costs of every project included (even for those that didn’t make it beyond project status). In view of the meager information available about the architect and his oeuvre I am more than happy to at least have this little book providing valuable details about his works that will help me with my research. Right now the Schmitz-designed St Antonius church in Völklingen is threatened with demolition and with so little known about its architect other of his buildings might share its fate in the future... #konnyschmitz #architect #workcatalogue #architecturebook #nachkriegsmoderne #nachkriegsarchitektur #postwarmodern #arthistory #architecturalhistory #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookaholic #booklover #bibliophile #instabook #bookblogger #antiquarianbook

New in: „Karl Schwanzer. Architektur aus Leidenschaft - 25 Jahre Arbeit“, the self written work report of Austrian architect Karl Schwanzer (1918-75) published by Modul Verlag in 1974. Schwanzer ranks among my favorite Austrian architect who’s best known for the BMW headquarters in Munich, an iconic example of corporate architecture. The book has been on my list for way too long and now I finally found a well-preserved copy of this incredible book. It contains a wide range of Schwanzer’s projects ranging from his own house to one of my favorite projects, the Parish Church Pötzleinsdorf, each presented in often full-page photos and plans. Those who know will agree that the story of Karl Schwanzer is highly tragic and the book reminds me of what this architect was capable of. What would have been if he was still around today? #karlschwanzer #architect #architecture #austrianarchitecture #austrianarchitect #modernarchitecture #workcatalogue #architecturebooks #artbook #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookaholic #booklover #bibliophile #instabook #bookblogger

I am still speechless about the fact that I got it for some mere 3 Euros: the three-volume work catalogue of German architect Heinz Kalenborn (*1927). Kalenborn is yet another alumnus of TH Stuttgart where he finished his studies under Rolf Gutbier in 1953 (whose assistant he was from 1953 and 1955). In 1955 he set up business in his hometown Düsseldorf and realized a large amount of projects in the Rhineland in changing partnerships, e.g. with Walter Dansard, before retiring in 2015. The three volumes unfold a rich and diverse oeuvre that includes all type of building tasks: churches, hotels, houses, apartment buildings, office buildings and even historic preservation. Besides documenting each project in photos, plans and drawings the books also include newspaper articles that shed light on the afterlife of certain projects that were not always welcomed by the public. I hope that the Kalenborn work catalogue might eventually serve as basis for a critical and fundamental appraisal of the architect's work that spans the decisive periods of German post-war (architectural) history. #heinzkalenborn #workcatalogue #architektur #architecture #architekturbuch #architecturebooks #archilovers #nachkriegsmoderne #nachkriegsarchitektur #postwarmodern #brutalism #brutalismus #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookaholic #bibliophile #instabooks #vsco #vscocam #ruhrmoderne

The practice of von Gerkan, Marg & Partner (GMP) undoubtedly is one of the most successful in Germany. Founded in 1965 by Meinhard von Gerkan and Volkwin Marg, the practice in the same year won the competition for the Berlin-Tegel airport, quite a huge project for architects in their end-20s. Today GMP operates on a global scale. As a historian I'm not so much interested in their recent work but in their past projects which in the late 1960s and 1970s show a time-related preference for Brutalism. In order to study these works I once bought the handy version of the practice's nine-volume complete works, published in 2001 by Birkhäuser. Although the texts are written in very small fonts, the volumes nonetheless provide a detailed overview of GMP's work and planning process that e.g. led to the hexagonal shape of the Tegel airport's buildings. #gmp #vongerkanmargundpartner #birkhauser #monograph #workcatalogue #architecture #architektur #nachkriegsarchitektur #nachkriegsmoderne #postwararchietcture #germanarchitecture #architecturebooks #architekturbuch #architecturalhistory #architekturgeschichte #brutalism #brutalismus #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookaholic #booklover #bookcollection #bibliophile #instabooks #igreads #vsco #vscocam

備前焼の緋襷の作品をピックアップしてみました。同じ土、同じ登り窯で焼かれながら、こんなに色合いが違うんです。これは蒸し焼きにされ、直接火が当たらないサヤ(耐火煉瓦の箱)や、作品の中に入れられ、白地に緋襷(藁のアルカリ成分が粘土の鉄分と反応したもの)の色合いが見所の作品です。 #備前焼 #緋襷 #作品一覧 #bizenware #hidasuki #works #workcatalogue

Grand Circus Magazine is proud to present the work of Dessi Terzieva. Terzieva is a Balkan bred, Detroit based artist. Much of Terzeiva's work stems from her experience and opinions on immigration. Her work displays observational commentary on culture and feel almost as anthropological studies. There is a reflection of self and reflection of society that are prominent focuses. Terzieva has been a resident of the Red Bull House of Art and continues to show in the city. She is always seeking critique and further questioning of herself and her work. We expect great things from Dessi. Also, please check the link on our main page to support our first printing! #workcatalogue #readgrandcircus
