Konrad Wachsmann and the Grapevine Structure by Marianne Burkhalter( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

German modernist architect Konrad Wachsmann (1901-1980) had a career-spanning interest in construction processes, in particular the prefabrication of building components and their assembly within modular systems. In this respect, Wachsmann was a pioneer whose ideas and work paved the way for today's industrialized construction. Marianne Burkhalter and Christian Sumi synthesize years of careful research into a compelling look at this highly creative architect. At the core of the book is Wachsmann's dynamic Grapevine Structure, a universal construction element developed with students during his tenure at the Chicago Institute of Design--part of what is today the Illinois Institute of Technology. The book also investigates Wachsmann's Packaged House System, his relocatable hangars for the US Air Force, and, in particular, the Local Orientation Manipulator (LOM), developed with John Bollinger and Xavier Mendoza at the University of California, Los Angeles. Fabio Gramazio, Matthias Kohler, and Hannes Mayer (Gramazio Kohler Research, ETH Zurich) revisit the LOM from a contemporary perspective where robotic fabrication processes have become increasingly common. The book also features an essay by Andreas Burkhalter on Wachsmann's legendary knotted joints in the context of possible similar structures in the human brain, and a conversation by Marko Pogacnik with architects Hermann Czech and Friedrich Kurrent on Wachsmann's lectures at the Salzburg Summer Academy.

Der Band wirft einen neuen Blick auf Hannes Meyer - dem zweiten Bauhausdirektor in Dessau, der 1930 politisch aus dem Amt gedrängt wurde. Das Buch dokumentiert anhand von Faksimiles programmatischer Schriften, wie der engagierte Architekt und Sozialist seine Idee des Bauhauses seit Antritt als Bauhausdirektor bis zu seinem Tode kommuniziert hat. Zum anderen untersuchen internationale Experten in einer Folge von Essays, wie Meyers Positionen sich veränderten und in unterschiedlichen gesellschaftlichen und politischen Kontexten diskutiert und rezipiert wurden. Hierbei spiegelt sich nicht nur das Potenzial der Ideen von Hannes Meyer, sondern es dokumentiert auch eine Geschichte des Wechselverhältnisses zwischen Architektur und Politik anhand einer der streitbarsten Positionen der Avantgarde des 20. Jahrhunderts. In dem Band erscheinen erstmalig extrem unzugängliche Originale deutscher bzw. bisher nicht ins Deutsche übertragener Bauhauskataloge als Reprints.(Verlagshomepage)
