THE REMATERIALISATION OF MODERN ARCHITECTURE
with contributions by Werner Oechslin and Heinrich Wefing
This book describes 22 projects carried out between 1990 and 2008 which are characterised by the idea of the rematerialisation of modern architecture, a reconciliation between tradition and modernity. Retrieving surface and volume in the facade, understanding the properties of the materials, the ageing characteristics of structures and the self-evident truths in architectural expression are dealt with here.
