Edited by Klaus Bollinger, Florian Medicus and the Akademie der Künste, Berlin
Stressing Wachsmann – Structures for a Future offers a comprehensive overview of German-American architect Konrad Wachsmann’s life (1901−1980), work and influence. Wachsmann’s multifarious pioneering achievements and his unconditional faith in future technologies and methods testify to his profound humanism. His life-long obsession with detail and industrial production paired with keen optimism have not only left a lasting mark on the history of architecture in the 20th century, but also challenge today’s architects to think and build better.
