'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 / Sep Ruf : Deutsche Pavillons, Brüssel 1958 by Immo Boyken( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in German and English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The building plot was a park-like site on which the architects placed a sequence of eight pavilions of different sizes; eight pavilions on a square ground plan, linked by bridge-style walkways, together surrounding an inner courtyard - a peaceful garden amidst the loud hurly-burly: introverted and open at the same time, it did allow visitors to look through the linking bridges into the outside world around them. The pavilions themselves: bright and light of weight - correctly reflecting the concept of a "pavilion": raised off the ground by a plinth of clay-yellow brick, giving an impression of floating; floors that showed outside as black bands, holding all the component parts together as a binding element; in front of them was a network of white-painted steel tubes, forming a kind of filigree epidermis; wooden floors in red pine matchboarding, reminiscent of classical sailing yachts; blinds set at the outer edge of the ceilings that when lowered transformed the open impression, thrusting deep into the depth of the space, into a closed, cubic impression; architecture (and combined with this an exhibition concept) that was not a "political dernonstration", but showed a "humane mentality", about which Le Figaro appositely remarked: "The Germans have created an exhibition of exemplary lucidity, treated delicately and with an entirely Parisian grace.""--Jacket

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)
Otto Ernst Schweizer, Kollegiengebäude II, Universität Freiburg by Immo Boyken( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the Kollegiengebäude II (college building II)of the University of Freiburg dedicated in 1961 the architect Otto Ernst Schweizer had achieved a masterpiece. Being built in the modern design idiom, it nevertheless took Freiburg&#x92;s tradition into account and gave a new quality of life to the university and the urban development of the inner city quarters. On the whole it was a significant stimulus to university construction. Thanks to the neutral expression of the building, its compact overall form and its &#xBB;elastic structural system± (there is maximum flexibility in room layout without touching the bearing skeleton), and together with the laconically simple floor plan it became a prototype solution for smooth functioning. It is an open architecture, free of any suffocating pathos,with wide open spaces, human scale in size and proportions and in ideal accordance with academic freedom for research, instruction and learning
