A comprehensive survey of the complete oeuvre of one of Germany's truly outstanding architects.
Egon Eiermann (1904-1970) influenced post-war German architecture to an extent unrivalled by any other architect. His rich architectural oeuvre is characterized by striking transparency, sensitive response to materials, high artistic standards, and rigorous attention to design quality down to the very smallest detail. Eiermann also authored a number of successful furniture designs, including his famous drawing table stand, the SE 18 folding chair, and the E 10 rattan lounge chair, now known as the "Eiermann Chair." Among Eiermann's best-known buildings are the IBM headquarters in Stuttgart-Vaihingen, the Olivetti corporate center in Frankfurt/Main, the former high-rise office building for Members of the German Bundestag in Bonn, and the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche in Berlin. Featuring some 300 photographs, this book presents a living picture of Egon Eiermann's outstanding architecture.
