Urban design in Western Europe : regime and architecture, 900-1900 by Wolfgang Braunfels( Book )

54 editions published between 1976 and 1997 in 7 languages and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What makes a city endure and prosper? In this masterful survey of a thousand years of urban architecture, Wolfgang Braunfels identifies certain themes common to cities as different as Siena and London, Munich and Venice ... Braunfels describes scores of cities, classifying them as cathedral cities, city-states, imperial cities, maritime cities, "ideal cities" (those towns which, planned by often absent rulers for a specefic purpose, failed to develop independent lives) ... Lavishly illustrated with city plans, bird's-eye views, early renderings, and modern photographs, Urban Design in Western Europe will both delight and instruct architects, urban planners, historians, and travelers."--Page 4 of cover

Karl der Grosse: Lebenswerk und Nachleben by Wolfgang Braunfels( Book )

93 editions published between 1965 and 1968 in German and English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mittelalterliche Stadtbaukunst in der Toskana by Wolfgang Braunfels( Book )

44 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Standardwerk zur Idee der Stadt als einheitlichem "Bauwerk" mit Mauern, Kirchen, Palästen, Straen und Brücken wurde vor sechzig Jahren konzipiert und ist von der Wissenschaft bis heute nicht überholt. Zugleich ist es aus Sicht von Architekten eines der wichtigsten Lehrbücher zur Stadtbaukunst. Wolfgang Braunfels (1911-1987) widmete sich in langjährigen, durch den Zweiten Weltkrieg unterbrochenen Archivstudien der Baugenese von Florenz, Siena und Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Pienza, Volterra, Cortona und anderen Städten der Toskana, deren Baugesetzgebung er auswertete. Er begründete damit eine stadtgeschichtliche Forschung, die dem Wachstum der Städte, ihrer baulichen Struktur, inneren Ordnung und ihrem ästhetischen Gefüge als Gemeinschaftswerk aller Bürger Aufmerksamkeit widmet. Widerrufen wurde damit das romantisch geprägte Bild einer zufällig "gewachsenen" Stadt des Mittelalters. Die Neuausgabe ergänzt der Sohn des Autors, der Architekt und Städtebauer Stephan Braunfels

Aus dem Vorwort: Diese große Ausstellung des Europarates ist Karl dem Großen gewidmet, dem ersten Kaiser, der Europa zu vereinen wußte. Wir gedenken in diesem Jubiläumsjahr (1965) der 1200jährigen Wiederkehr des ersten bezeugten Aufenthaltes seines Vaters Pippin 765 in Aachen, der 800jährigen Wiederkehr des Tages, an dem Friedrich Barbarossa seinen erlauchten Ahnen 1165 in den Kreis der heiligen Könige erhoben hat. Der Arbeitskreis, der diese Ausstellung zusammengestellt hat, will das Wirken Karls des Großen in eben dem Rahmen veranschaulichen, in dem es sich in den letzten zwanzig Jahren seines Lebens, 794 bis 814, in Aachen vollzogen hat
