Built Transparency/Gebaute Transparenz
JSK is one of Germany's leading international architectural firms and is at the forefront of new developments in architecture for the 21st century. Over 60 of their most important works are presented here in this extensively illustrated volume, alongside several drawings and a full listing of all of their projects and buildings -- as well as essays by noted European architectural critics Willy Joos and Christel Kapitzki. The "built transparency" that the JSK firm takes at its central theme puts human needs at its heart, creating architecture that manages to be ecologically sound, aesthetically beautiful, functional, and economic, all at the same time. These architects shape urban environments in a forward-looking and positive way, and the results of their handiwork have been particularly essential to the reconstruction of Berlin.
