Helmut Jahn: Architecture Engineering
The buildings of Helmut Jahn, Werner Sobek and Matthias Schuler represent a symbiotic collaboration between architecture, engineering and building technology. 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 Jahn, Sobek and Schuler including the European Union Headquarters in Charlemagne, the Sony Centre in Berlin, office buildings for the Deutsche 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.
