PAUL BOHM: BUILDINGS AND PROJECTS/BAUTEN UND PROJEKTE. Wolfgang Pehnt. Edition Axel Menges GmbH, Stuttgart, 2017. 144 pp. with 170 ills. (101 col.). 31 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783936681857 Bilingual in English and German.
Publisher's description: The central Mosque of the Turkish-Islamic Union in Koln-Ehrenfeld has given us one of the most vigorously discussed German building projects of the past 10 years. With this spectacular domed structure, Paul Bohm, the youngest son of Pritzker Prize-winner Gottfried Bohm and grandchild of Dominikus Bohm, has successfully introduced the Osman mosque typus into the modern age. The dome and minaret provide the Turkish / Islamic community with visual identification points. At the same time, this shell-construction structure is broken up into individual segments in a manner that opens it up to both the neighborhood and the world. Containing conference halls, rooms for community use, a bazaar, a library and a museum, the complex is intended to convey to the surrounding area a message of retained ties to the historical country of origin coupled with acceptance and integration into the new homeland, and a willingness to engage in dialogue. Up to now the mosque represents the high point of the architectural career of Paul Bohm, who was born in 1959 and who is teaching at the Fachhochschule Koln. His work encompasses a multitude of exciting projects and realized buildings, including cultural buildings, university buildings, administration buildings and residential buildings.
