The beauty of the metropolis by August Endell( Book )

25 editions published between 1908 and 2018 in German and English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Where do we feel at home? What do our cities look like? How do we see? In 1908, architect and theorist August Endell set out to answer these deceptively simple questions. In The Beauty of the Metropolis he views the oft-maligned urban environment, acknowledging its shortcomings while also finding in it an aesthetic enrichment to rival any romanticised landscape. This forward-thinking essay raises the workaday city to rapturous heights, with flights of prose aspiring to the quality of music. Endell advocates a complete engagement with the here and now, drawing numerous examples from his own home, Berlin. From the clamour of Potsdamer Platz to quiet outlying districts, the author discovers visual pleasure in the rapidly expanding German capital where detractors found little more than squalor. Along the way Endell reconsiders the peculiarly German concept of heimat, incompletely translated as 'homeland'. The Beauty of the Metropolis is joined here by articles Endell wrote for a progressive journal in 1905, on subjects as diverse as modern art, busy streets and the passing of the seasons. An afterword and informative endnotes provide further insight into Endell’s vision"--Publisher's website

August Endell gehört zu den Protagonisten des deutschen Jugendstils und zu den Wegbereitern der Moderne. Von 1901 bis 1918 lebte Endell in Berlin, wo der größte Teil seines Schaffens entstand. Hier vollzog er in seiner künstlerischen Entwicklung die Wende von der expressiven Über-Ornamentik des Wolzogen-Theaters über die in der Formgebung beruhigten Hackeschen Höfe hin zur sachlichen Werkbund-Moderne, für welche die Wohnhäuser in Berlin-Westend und die Trabrennbahn in Berlin-Mariendorf stehen. Als Formkünstler entwarf er Innenräume, Möbel, Lampen, Textilien sowie Teppiche und begründete als Kunstschulreformer die "Schule für Formkunst". Das Buch beinhaltet 25 Essays, die sich mit Endells Leben, Werk und Schriften befassen und den Künstler im zeitgeschichtlichen Kontext verankern. Darüber hinaus liefert es einen vollständigen, reich bebilderten Werkkatalog
