Hans Scharoun (Phaidon Press, 1995) by Peter Blundell Jones is a stunning monograph and exhaustive study of the admired, uncompromising architect.
As an important exponent of Organic Architecture, Scharoun developed a radically new kind of architectural space, and his disdain for imposed form and emphasis on open-minded discovery have proved increasingly influential among a younger generation of architects.
Peter Blundell Jones’s exhaustive study provides a comprehensive overview of Scharoun’s life and work and explores his theoretical stance in relation to contemporaries such as Hugo Häring, Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier.
Generously illustrated throughout with plans and drawings, and specially commissioned photographs by Dennis Gilbert, this book presents a timely re-evaluation of Scharoun’s unique contribution to architectural theory and design.
