Documenting the second in a trilogy of exhibitions tracing major developments in German architecture during the first half of the 20th century (see also Worldwide 23943), this substantial catalogue examines in detail the radically visionary concepts explored by Expressionist architects and the gradual ascendancy of the more pragmatic, rationalist approaches reflected in the principles of the Bauhaus. Accompanied by illustrations of hundreds of drawings and plans by Taut, Mies van der Rohe, Gropius, Mendelsohn, Scharoun and other architects (many of them associated with both the Expressionist and the New Objectivity movements), fourteen wide-ranging essays analyze key elements in avant-garde German architecture and urban planning during the period and discuss the impact of individual figures and projects.
