The city in the city : Berlin : a green archipelago by O. M Ungers( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the manifesto 'The City in the City - Berlin: A Green Archipelago', Oswald Mathias Ungers and a number of his colleagues from Cornell University presented the first concepts and intellectual models for the shrinking city. In contrast to the reconstruction of the European city that was popular at the time, they developed the figure of a polycentric urban landscape. However, the manifesto really began to exert an effect beginning in the 1990s onwards, when the focus of the urban planning discourse turned to the examination of crises, recessions, and the phenomenon of demographic shrinking. This critical edition contains a previously unpublished version of the manifesto by Rem Koolhaas, as well as interviews with co-authors Rem Koolhaas, Peter Riemann, Hans Kollhoff, and Arthur Ovaska. Introductory texts explain the development of the manifesto between Cornell and Berlin, position the work in the planning history of Berlin, and reveal its influence on current approaches

Die Stadt in der Stadt : Berlin: ein grünes Archipel ; ein Manifest (1977) von Oswald Mathias Ungers und Rem Koolhaas mit Peter Riemann, Hans Kollhoff und Arthur Ovaska( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit dem Manifest Die Stadt in der Stadt - Berlin: ein grünes Archipel legten Oswald Mathias Ungers und seine Kollegen von der Cornell University 1977 die ersten Konzepte und Denkmodelle zur schrumpfenden Stadt vor. Im Gegensatz zur damals populären Rekonstruktion der europäischen Stadt entwickelten sie die Figur einer polyzentrischen Stadtlandschaft. Seine Wirkung entfaltete das Manifest jedoch erst in den 1990er-Jahren, als im Städtebaudiskurs die Auseinandersetzung mit Krisen, Rezessionen und demografischen Schrumpfungen in den Fokus rückte. Diese kritische Ausgabe enthält eine Reproduktion des Ungers-Manifests und eine bislang unveröffentlichte, von Rem Koolhaas verfasste Version sowie Interviews mit den (Co- )Autoren Rem Koolhaas, Peter Riemann, Hans Kollhoff und Arthur Ovaska. Einleitungstexte erläutern die Entstehung des Manifests zwischen Cornell und Berlin, verorten das Werk in der Planungsgeschichte Berlins und stellen dessen Einfluss auf aktuelle Ansätze heraus.

Morphologie = City metaphors by O. M Ungers( Book )

13 editions published between 1982 and 2017 in German and English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1982, German architect Oswald Mathias Ungers' City Metaphors juxtaposes more than 100 various city maps throughout history with images of flora and fauna and other images from science and nature. Ungers assigns each a title--a single descriptive word printed in both English and German. In Ungers' vision, the divisions of Venice are transformed into a handshake and the 1809 plan of St Gallen becomes a womb. Ungers writes in his foreword: "Without a comprehensive vision reality will appear as a mass of unrelated phenomenon and meaningless facts, in other words, totally chaotic. In such a world it would be like living in a vacuum; everything would be of equal importance; nothing could attract our attention; and there would be no possibility to utilize the mind." A classic of creative cartography and visual thinking, City Metaphors is also an experiment in conscious vision-building
