"The protagonist, a Swiss architect named Edgar Krug, circumnavigates the globe by airship with his wife, constructing wildly varied colored-glass buildings. His projects include a high-rise and exhibition/concert hall in Chicago, a retirement complex for air pilots in Fiji, the structure for an elevated train across a zoological park in northern India, and a suspended residential villa on the Kuria Muria Islands off the coast of Oman in the Arabian Sea.

"First published in German in 1913 and widely considered to be Paul Scheerbart's masterpiece, Lesabendio is an intergalactic utopian novel that describes life on the planetoid Pallas, where rubbery suction-footed life forms with telescopic eyes smoke bubble-weed in mushroom meadows under violet skies and green stars. Amid the conveyor-belt highways and lighthouses weaving together the mountains and valleys, a visionary named Lesabéndio hatches a plan to build a 44-mile-high tower and employ architecture to connect the two halves of their double star."--Page 4 of cover

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

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 91 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 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses Buch präsentiert phantastische Architekturen, 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 80 bisher noch nie gezeigte Aquarelle von Paul Goesch mit Zeichnungen und Texten Paul Scheerbarts, Bruno Tauts und weiterer Mitglieder der "Gläsernen Kette".

Hauptbeschreibung Paul Scheerbart (1863-1915) kann als Urheber der deutschen surrealistischen Bewegung gelten. Sein relativ umfangreiches Werk blieb lange Zeit weitgehend unbekannt, obwohl es ihm einige Anerkennung in den literarischen Kreisen seiner Zeit verschaffte. Er war befreundet mit Richard Dehmel und unter anderem bekannt in den Zirkeln um Erich Mühsam. Walter Benjamin und der Architekt Bruno Taut gehörten zu seinen Bewunderern. Scheerbarts Gedichtsammlung ""Katerpoesie"" war 1909 eines der ersten Bücher des Rohwolt Verlags. Der vorliegende Band erschien bereits 1893 in
