Grössere Gegner gesucht: Kulturbauten im Spannungsfeld von Politik, Medien, Architektur
The controversial - even sensational stories behind the construction of some of world's major cultural buildings. The construction of a new cultural building at the heart of a major city can never just be a matter of an ingenious architectural design. It is often the focus of heated public debate, & many varied factors have to be taken into account before the building is finally realised. This book presents six projects in the light of the surrounding media headlines & the wrangle for positions in the public eye. In each case the central subject is the architecture; in each case there are architects & politicians, public money & media interest. All these factors are entwined, not only influencing each other but ultimately determining the construction of the building. This volume takes a look at some of our most popular cultural buildings from a fascinating new perspective, the chapter headings giving a hint of the stories to follow: The political symbol - Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris The pursued architect - Sydney Opera House The sole survivor - the Viennese museums quarter The powerful politician - Grand Louvre Paris The professional manager - Culture & Congress centre Lucerne The generous sponsor - Groningen Museum.
