Houses and people of Japan by Bruno Taut( Book )

55 editions published between 1937 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Das japanische Haus und sein Leben' ist eines von Bruno Tauts Hauptwerken, das der Architekt in den Jahren der Emigration auf der Flucht vor den Nationalsozialisten in Japan verfaßt hat und erscheint erst jetzt in deutscher Sprache nach dem originalen Manuskript. Hierzulande assoziiert man mit Bruno Taut seine weltberühmten Siedlungen der 20er Jahre und seinen wesentlichen Einfluß auf die Vorstellung von moderner Baukunst, die sich mit seiner Architektur verbindet. Zwar ist sein Wirken als Architekturschriftsteller nicht unbekannt geblieben, aber eines seiner Hauptwerke erscheint erst jetzt in deutscher Sprache nach dem originalen Manuskript. In englischer Sprache sind, zuerst 1937, bereits zwei Auflagen erschienen, in Japan gilt das Buch bis heute als Standardwerk zum Verständnis der Architekturgeschichte des Landes. Das, was die Architektur Bruno Tauts im besonderen auszeichnet, kehrt in der Betrachtung der historischen Architektur Japans wieder, Qualitäten wie Einfachheit, Bescheidenheit und Respekt vor wahrer Tradition zeichnen beide aus. Dem Leser des Buches bietet sich die Möglichkeit für ein tieferes Verständnis der japanischen Architektur, die aus ihren historischen und gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen heraus entworfen wird. Das Layout der deutschen Ausgabe folgt genau den Vorgaben Bruno Tauts, der das Buch bis in die letzten Details selbst entworfen hat. (Quelle: buchhandel.de)
The Crystal Chain letters : architectural fantasies by Bruno Taut and his circle by Gläserne Kette( Book )

9 editions published in 1985 in English and Italian and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Crystal Chain - "Die glaserne Kette" - was a utopian correspondence initiated by Bruno Taut in 1919-1920, in which a small group of like-minded architects and artists exchanged ideas on what form the architecture of the future should take. Unfettered by the demands of practicability, the members of the group described their visions of an ideal society and of a beneficent architecture in a series of dazzling, fantastic letters and drawings. Although the letters are referred to in almost every survey of twentieth century architecture, this is the first book to offer in English the complete texts of all the known Crystal Chain letters, including some which have never been published in German. The letters are accompanied by illustrations, an introductory essay, and explanatory notes. The Crystal Chain Letters document the crisis of modernism that afflicted German architectural theory in the years immediately following the First World War. The trauma of the war and the subsequent social unrest led the radical architects to reject the materialism and positivism that had characterized the "Kaiserreich." The result was an ideological and aesthetic vacuum, and the search for suitable alternatives provided the basis for the correspondence. After a year of intense theoretical speculation, several of the links in the chain, including Bruno and Max Taut, Walter Gropius, Hans and Wassili Luckhardt, and Hans Scharoun, emerged as leading advocates and practitioners of the new architecture in Germany. -- from publishers website

The city crown by Bruno Taut by Matthew Mindrup( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first English translation of the German architect Bruno Taut's early twentieth-century anthology Die Stadtkrone (The City Crown). Written under the influence of World War I, Taut developed The City Crown to promote a utopian urban concept where people would live in a garden city of 'apolitical socialism' and peaceful collaboration around a single purpose-free crystalline structure. Taut's proposal sought to advance the garden city idea of Ebenezer Howard and rural aesthetic of Camillo Sitte's urban planning schemes by merging them with his own 'city crown' concept. The book also contains contributions by the Expressionist poet Paul Scheerbart, the writer and politician Erich Baron and the architectural critic Adolf Behne. Although the original German text was republished in 2002, only the title essay of The City Crown has previously been translated into English. This English translation of Taut's full anthology, complete with all illustrations and supplementary texts, fills a significant gap in the literature on early modern architecture in Germany and the history of urban design. It includes a translators' preface, introduction and afterword to accompany the original composition of essays, poems, designs and images. These original texts are accompanied by illustrations of Taut's own designs for a utopian garden city of 300,000 inhabitants and over 40 additional historic and contemporary examples
Visionäre der Moderne = Modern visionaries : Paul Scheerbart, Bruno Taut, Paul Goesch( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses Buch präsentiert Architekturvisionen, Zeichnungen und Texte dreier deutscher Visionäre in der Aufbruchsphase nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg. Der Schriftsteller, Dichter und Erfinder Paul Scheerbart (1863-1915) konnte den Architekten Bruno Taut (1880-1938) für seine Ideen, mit farbigem Glas zu bauen, begeistern. Paul Goesch (1885-1940), ausgebildeter Architekt, schuf Hunderte von phantastischen Zeichnungen. Er zählte zum berühmten Forum für utopisches Bauen <<Die gläserne Kette>>, das 1919 von Taut ins Leben gerufen worden war. Die expressive Kunst der jungen Weimarer Republik, deren Wirtschaft darniederlag, sollte sich aus den verschiedensten Quellen speisen, die Bauten gläsernen Grotten oder galaktischen Luftschlössern ähneln. <<Träumer, Phantasten, Visionäre (...), das ist letzten Endes das, was wir wollen: die Utopie!>>, formulierte der Architekt Walter Gropius begeistert. Diese erste vergleichende Publikation zum Schaffen der drei Visionäre der Moderne vereinigt rund achtzig, bisher noch nie gezeigte Aquarelle von Paul Goesch mit Zeichnungen und Texten Paul Scheerbarts, Bruno Tauts und weiterer Mitglieder der <<Gläsernen Kette>>
