Chicago: Josef Paul Kleihues
SIZE: 13” high x 8” wide
MATERIALS: Hardcover with dust jacket
The Chicago museum places Kleihues in the long line of German architects who have planned and built in this important architectural metropolis. His particular concern here was to examine the different architectural traditions of Europe and America. The present publication takes this examination by Kleihues as a starting-point for demonstrating the various aspects of the place and to bring out the significance of the new building by the fact that it appears in the spirit of the genius loci as the point where different historical and urban qualities meet and invites the viewer to continue to address these. For this reason this detailed documentation of the building is complemented by chapters on the urban development of the site, the Chicago School of Architecture and the German architects who planned and built in Chicago from the mid-nineteenth century.
