The American Vitruvius : an architects' handbook of civic art by Werner Hegemann( Book )

49 editions published between 1922 and 2008 in English and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American Vitruvius: an Architects' Handbook of Civic Art. At the end of the second decade of this [the twentieth] century, Werner Hegemann, a German-born urban planning theorist and practitioner, and Elbert Peets, a young American recently graduated from Harvard University's School of Landscape Architecture, joined together in Wisconsin in a professional partnership. The association of these two students of American urbanism culminated in 1922 with The American Vitruvius: an Architects' Handbook of Civic Art, a critical text that played an essential role in the definition and promotion of modern American city planning. American Vitruvius offers the reader an atlas of design solutions and advocates a humanistic, as well as rational, development of the urban environment. Princeton Architectural Press has reprinted the entire original text including the book's 1203 plates. These illustrations consist of plans, elevations, and perspective views of both European and American cities, spanning in date from the Renaissance to the twentieth century. The republication of this volume suggests the relevance of Hegemann and Peets' approach for contemporary city planning. Today, in the midst of an era responding to the de-humanization of the city, American Vitruvius offers a reconciliation of artistic aspects of civic art with scientific theory of city planning -- the authors insist upon a city that allows its residents both pleasure and freedom of expression"--Front flap

Werner Hegemann (1881-1936) war Stadtplaner, Architekturkritiker und Schriftsteller. Er war als Stadtplaner international bekannt, sowie eine zeitgenössische Größe als Architekturkritiker. Ende 1909 wurde Hegemann achtundzwanzigjährig zum Generalsekretär der Internationalen Städtebauausstellung ernannt. Die im Mai 1910 eröffnete Ausstellung zeigte die Berliner Wettbewerbspläne, deutsche und internationale Beispiele für Architektur und Stadtplanung, wurde noch im selben Jahr in Düsseldorf wiederholt und teilweise in London gezeigt. Hegemann war nicht nur ihr Pressesprecher, sondern agierte als Führer für ein zahlreiches Publikum vom auswärtigen Fachbesucher bis zu politischen Vereinen. Das Reihenhaus erfreute sich insbesondere in England schon seit Jahrhunderten großer Beliebtheit und gelangte im Rahmen der Gartenstadtbewegung nach Deutschland, beispielsweise unter Ernst May nach Frankfurt. Viele Siedlungen des Neuen Frankfurts waren Reihenhauskolonien, als Besonderheit waren alle Häuser mit einer Frankfurter Küche ausgestattet. (Wiki) Der vorliegende Band Reihenhaus-Fassaden (Geschäfts- und Wohnhäuser aus alter und neuer Zeit) ist mit 500 S/W-Abbildungen, vorwiegend Fotos illustriert. Nachdruck der Originalauflage von 1929.
