Dostępność:na zamowienie What is urbanity? How and where can it be experienced today and in what way does it condition our perception of the city? And which role does art play in the current discussions about the urbane? Through theoretical analyses and practical suggestions, this book explores the issue of how urban potentials can be discovered and exploited.
An unusual journey between Breslau and Dessau, from the World Cultural Heritage of the Centennial Hall (1913) to the World Cultural Heritage of Bauhaus dating from the twenties: and there are many highpoints of modern architecture in-between—in Görlitz, Dresden-Hellerau, Leipzig or Chemnitz, for example. Almost all the great modernist architects ar gathered together here, from Hans Poelzig and Henry van de Velde to Heinrich Tessenow, Richard Riemerschmid, Hans Scharoun, Erich Mendelsohn and even Walter Gropius. But the focus is also on the cities themselves; at a very early date, their progressive building councillors thought hard about European urban development—about buildings ranging from striking tower blocks to top-quality mass housing.
