schema:description""This book provides an overview of the work of Ernst May, one of the outstanding figures of classic modernist architecture. Exhibition Itinerary: Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, July 27--November 13, 2011. This catalog accompanies the first exhibition dedicated to the entirety of May's work. It provides an overview of his most famous achievement, The New Frankfurt--a massive urban planning project which in the 1920s gave the city an unprecedented Modernist look and which provided thousands of ingeniously and economically designed apartments. In addition, the book presents in detail Ernst May's other architectural projects. It focuses on May's time in Silesia, the Soviet Union and Africa as well as his post-war return to Germany. It also sheds light on May's enormous impact on the fields of architecture and urban planning. The book's hundreds of illustrations include contemporary photographs, original drawings and plans, and images of models and completed projects. More than a dozen essays examine various aspects of May's work and life, and discuss the full range of his architectural oeuvre, presented in a comprehensive catalogue raisonée."--Publisher's website."
