Birkhäuser, 2002 - Architecture - 263 pages
Helmut Jahn's latest buildings are the result of interdisciplinary thinking taken a step further: they represent a symbiotic collaboration between architecture, engineering and building technology. The credo of this form of architecture engineering is transparency, openness and inner flexibility, and instrumental in its development are among others, Helmut Jahn, Werner Sobek and Matthias Schuler.This innovative team has taken up the challenge of turning optimum technical solutions into intelligent and resource-saving constructions, creating internationally acclaimed architecture of the very highest technical and aesthetical quality: "Modern buildings make the highest demands of technology. And it is not the architect who fulfils them but the engineer" (Helmut Jahn)This volume documents in detail a large number of recent projects in Europe, the USA and Asia by Helmut Jahn, Werner Sobek and Matthias Schuler including the European Union Headquarters in Charlemagne, Munich Airport Center, the Sony Centre in Berlin, the airport Cologne/Bonn, office buildings for the Deutsch Post in Bonn, Shanghai International Expo Centre, Bishopsgate (London), MANN (Chicago), New Bangkok International Airport, Illinois Institute of Technology Campus Center, and Shenzhen Convention and Exhibit Center.
