14 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helmut Jahn is world-famous for buildings like Frankfurter Messeturm (1985 1991), Sony Center with the Bahntower, Berlin (1993-2000), airport Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi (1995-2005) and the Veer Towers, Las Vegas (2006 2010). In a luxury edition this book shows in large scale and high-quality photos by the well-known photographer Rainer Viertlböck the increasing international reach of Helmut Jahns oeuvre, starting in Chicago and the United States in the 1980s and expanding initially to South Africa, then to Europe, with the focus on Germany, and from there via the Middle East to China, Singapore, Japan and Korea. The photos are combined with a comprehensive collection of Helmut Jahns impressive design sketches. They provide inspiring insights into the development of the buildings and the underlying design process. The drawings present the buildings in their overall context of urban surroundings, the structural features, the proportions and ideas on the materials, not to forget just as clearly outlines of the engineering required for the facade technology and construction work. An essay by architecture historian Franz Schultz explains the meaning of Jahns oeuvre within the contemporary architecture. An text by Helmut Jahn himself comments the philosophy behind his buildings

Post tower : Helmut Jahn, Werner Sobek, Matthias Schuler by Werner Blaser( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aerodynamically designed highrise building which houses the offices of the Deutsche Post is a remarkable example of the collaboration between Helmut Jahn, Werner Sobek and Matthias Schuler. This innovative design has in the meantime been honoured by the Urban Land Institute. The plan consists of two half oval towers, which are shifted slightly towards each other, enclosing a central winter garden which optimizes energy consumption. The offices can be naturally ventilated for a large part of the year with the exhaust air ventilating the winter garden. The integrated, computer-controlled heating and cooling system balances the inside and outside temperatures perfectly, and the use of innovative double skin façades make this building an example of state-of-the-art façade technology. This book portrays this structure in stunning duotone photographs, short texts and plans
