European Church Architecture, 1900-1950 : Towards Modernity
Prestel, 2006 - Architecture - 221 pages
The most outstanding examples of European church architecture from 1900 to 1950 are included in this illustrated compilation - the first ever to be published on the subject. More than fifty buildings from twelve countries reflect the rich diversity to be found in church architecture on the threshold to Modernity. These churches, which range in style from central European Art Nouveau to the reform architecture of Scandinavia, paved the way for post-war ecclesiastical architecture in Europe. In addition, essays by prominent theologians explore the architectural changes conditioned by the two major Christian faiths. 'European Church Architecture 1900-1950' illustrates important buildings by architects including Gunnar Asplund, Otto Bartning, Hendrik Petrus Berlage, Dominikus Bohm, Theodor Fischer, Karl Moser, Auguste Perret, Joze Plecnik, Rudolf Schwarz and Otto Wagner.
