In the course of the past several years, KSP Engel and Zimmermann has become one of the most successful architecture firms in Germany. The firm now has offices in Berlin, Braunschweig, Frankfurt, Cologne, and Munich. Its projects include office buildings, hospitals, schools, libraries, sports facilities and residential architecture. KSP Engel and Zimmermann's rich architectural language covers a broad spectrum-from sensitive intervention in existing structures to striking high-rise buildings. This book features an interview in which the two architects clarify their approach to architecture, their curiosity about building abroad, and their recent success. Essays by Peter Davey, editor-in-chief of Architectural Review, and Ingeborg Flagge, director of the Deutsches Architektur Museum, provide a portrait of these self-assured yet open-minded and highly pragmatic architects. The book illustrates the firm's architectural and planning competence in a presentation of forty different projects, including the Federal Press Office in Berlin, the Trade Fair Forum in Frankfurt, Volkswagen Hall in Braunschweig, the Bertelsmann Foundation building in Gütersloh, and a number of high-rise projects in Frankfurt.
