Egon Eiermann : German embassy, Washington by Immo Boyken( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in German and English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'When the German Embassy in Washington was completed in 1964, the architectural critic of the Washington Post wrote that the express aim of those commissioning the building had been to make an architectural statement that would embody the spirit of the young German democracy and avoid any form that could revive grim memories of the past. The paper felt that it had been right to engage Egon Eiermann for this project, as he had already solved the same problem of >>architectural diplomacy<< with his German Pavilion for the Brussels World Fair in 1958.Eiermann (1904-1970) studied at the Technische Hochschule in Berlin, finally in Hans Poelzig's master-class, but he was also influenced by Heinrich Tessenow. As early as 1931 his first building, which he had planned as an architect employed in a practice, was published in Wasmuths Monatshefte fur Baukunst und Stadtebau; his major buildings and projects continued to be featured in magazines in Germany and abroad, and impressed with their formal language, which remained uninfluenced by fashionable trends. Building was first and foremost an intellectual process for Eiermann, determined by the factors construction, function and material, by objectivity and a self-control that granted the imagination only limited scope. Eiermann developed the vocabulary he had found in the thirties consistently after 1945. The works dating from the early post-war period still appeal, no less than the major sixties projects, because of their tight organization of functional necessities, unity of construction and architectural form, and precise shaping of even the tiniest detail and not least because of an effortless elegance and lightness that raise the work above merely fulfilling a purpose into the ranks of great architecture. J. Alexander and Jerry Hecht were the official photographers for the building. Their pictures are among the most convincing photographic interpretations of Eiermann's work. Immo Boyken is professor of building history and architectural theory in Konstanz. He is particularly interested in the architecture of the late 19th century and of classical Modernism. He made a major contribution to the 1984 monograph on Eiermann.'--BOOK JACKET
Egon Eiermann (1904-1970) : architect and designer : the continuity of modernism by Egon Eiermann( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in German and English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egon Eiermann was one of Germany's greatest twentieth-century architects. His works - which enjoy recognition worldwide - are characterized by transparency, truth to materials, high artistic standards, and stringent design quality down to the smallest detail. His pavilions for the Federal Republic at the 1958 Brussels World's Fair established his international reputation while making him an architectural ambassador of the young German democracy." "Using predominantly original photographs, the present publication offers a portrait of Eiermann's architecture, while distinguished authorities on his work explore his philosophy and personality in a series of essays."--Jacket

Egon Eiermann 1904-1970 : Bauten und Projekte by Egon Eiermann( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in German and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Egon Eiermanns Tätigkeit umfaßte ein breites Spektrum verschiedenster Bauaufgaben. Zu seinen berühmtesten Bauten zählen das ab 1965 errichtete Bonner Abgeordneten-Hochhaus ("der lange Eugen") und die Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche, die zwischen 1957 und 1963 am Berliner Kurfürstendamm entstand. Er schuf aber auch Möbel und Kleidung, gestaltete Gebrauchgegenstände wie Gläser und Lampen, entwarf Inneneinrichtungen und Bühnenbilder. Die unveränderte Nachauflage des Klassikers zum Werk von Egon Eiermann, dessen Gestaltung in den Händen Otl Aichers lag, verbindet Aufsätze zum vielseitigen Schaffen des Architekten mit einem ausführlichen, chronologisch angelegten Werkverzeichnis. Ein Klassiker der neueren Architekturgeschichtsschreibung also nicht nur für Architekten und Architekturhistoriker, sondern auch für alle Kunst- und Designinteressierten. (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)

Forschung durch Redesign Originalität und Redesign von Autorenprodukten am Beispiel des Zeichentischgestells von Egon Eiermann by Daniel Klapsing( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht mit theoretischen und praktischen Methoden die Frage der Autorschaft und der Originalität im Design. Dabei dient insbesondere der Umgang von Möbelherstellern mit sogenannten Modernen Klassikern des Möbeldesigns als Untersuchungsgegenstand. Im Zentrum dieser Untersuchung steht eine Recherche zu der bislang wenig erforschten Entwicklungsgeschichte der Tischgestelle von Egon Eiermann. Die Arbeit soll damit einen wissenschaftlichen Beitrag zur Entwicklungsgeschichte der sogenannten Eiermann-Gestelle bieten. Design wird in diesem Rahmen als eine variationserzeugende Tätigkeit definiert, die stets dazu tendiert, Bestehendes zu verändern. Design steht damit in einem spannungsreichen Verhältnis zu dem Begriff der Originalität, da jedes Redesign erneut die Frage der Autorschaft aufwirft, was insbesondere dann kritisch wird, wenn der ursprüngliche Autor eines Designs verstorben ist. Im Rahmen dieser Untersuchung spielen rechtliche, ästhetische, materielle und ideelle Aspekte eine Rolle
