Egon Eiermann influenced postwar German architecture to an extent unrivalled by any other architect. His rich architectural oeuvre is characterized by striking transparency, sensitive response to materials, high artistic standards, and rigorous attention to design quality--down to the very last detail. Eiermann also created a number of successful furniture designs, including his famous drawing table stand, the SE 18folding chair, and the E 10rattan lounge chair, now known as the Eiermann chair. Among Eiermann's best-known buildings are the IBM headquarters in Stuttgart-Vaihingen, the Olivetti corporate center in Frankfurt am Main, the former high-rise office building for Members of the German Bundestag in Bonn, and the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Ged chtniskirche in Berlin. Eiermann was also a highly respected educator and architectural innovator. During his tenure as a professor of architecture at the Technische Hochschule Karlsruhe, he influenced an entire generation of young architects. This volume considers his entire life's work.
