Abstract:

"Egon Eiermann was one of Germany's greatest twentieth-century architects. His works - which enjoy recognition worldwide - are characterized by transparency, truth to materials, high artistic standards, and stringent design quality down to the smallest detail. His pavilions for the Federal Republic at the 1958 Brussels World's Fair established his international reputation while making him an architectural ambassador of the young German democracy." "Using predominantly original photographs, the present publication offers a portrait of Eiermann's architecture, while distinguished authorities on his work explore his philosophy and personality in a series of essays."--Jacket.
