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

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.0Although 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
