Über diesen Titel
Whether in a residential city settlement, a cement factory, or a small suburban house, the architecture produced by the Munich firm Kurt Ackermann and Partners is always distinctive: its functionalism and clarity of construction have carved a niche for the firm in today's design market, with the quality and grace of the built product ensuring its longevity. Their guiding principle, a classic in modern design, is that a building's function should be visible in its construction and design. They reject architectural trends and sensational features, and instead focus on developing their own trademark style. For this reason they have won many architectural prizes. "Ackermann and Partners: Buildings and Projects 1978-1998" demonstrates the clear, simple beauty that is born of these principles. The ice rink in the Olympic Park in Munich appears lightweight and elegant, with painterly light and shadow effects playing a decisive role in the design. The water purification plant Gut Marienhof in Munich demonstrates a brilliant stereometric configuration of the basic construction elements. The exhibition hall at the Hanover trade fair is flooded with light and is a fascinating example of highly developed energy technology. Numerous illustrations, plans and descriptions of projects in this volume present the reader with a functional and aesthetic architecture free of short-lived design fads.From the Publisher:
"Ackermann's buildings are identical with his techniques: they are simple, clear, and direct, free of all circuitousness. If one attempts to add anything to them or subtract anything from them, one soon realizes just how unimprovable, simple, good, and aesthetic his buildings, his lectures, and his writings are. His success as an architect, researcher, and explorer is of immeasurable stature." --Frei Otto, Laudatio Stuttgart University
"The quality of the architecture is the outcome . . . of the imaginative use of industrial materials and the creativity with which technological forms are subject to continual development and constructional refinement." -- Gottfried Knapp, Suddeutsche Zeitung
