| Transformative Timelessness

The ideal of timeless simplicity yet enduring structural quality in an overarching sense has been at the heart of the architectural practice of gmp · Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner for more than 60 years. Featuring a diverse selection of international projects completed between 2015 and 2019, the latest volume in gmp’s monograph series includes 47 high-profile and critically acclaimed projects such as the conversion and refurbishment of the Kulturpalast Dresden, the impressive steel structure of the Elbbrücken train station in Hamburg, as well as also major projects in China like the Tianjin Binhai Cultural Center and Museum and Guangxi Culture & Art Center or the German House in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, whose innovative, award-winning facade system is the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. Richly illustrated with full-color documentation, it also includes some designs that were not realized such as the membrane-like roof for the Verona Arena. With more than half of the world’s embodied energy contained in existing buildings, one of gmp’s key approaches is indeed the appreciation and transformative intervention in existing contexts.

Founded in Hamburg in 1965, gmp · Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner is one of Germany’s leading architectural practices with offices around the world. With more than 500 projects in 23 countries, it is one of the few practices to take responsibility for a project from its conceptualization to its interior design. Its ongoing monographic series is one of the longest running and most acclaimed in the field of architecture. 45 years after Meinhard von Gerkan published the first volume, gmp partner Stephan Schütz took over as editor from the late architect, who died in 2022.
