Josef Paul Kleihues

Front Cover
Kleihues' buildings and projects of the last three decades are presented here as the practical applications of his theoretical positions. In particular, his theories on Poetic Rationalism," the Critical Reconstruction of the City" and the Antithetical and Contradictory as Ends and Means" have greatly influenced contemporary architectural debate. This volume has been structured so as to allow a study of his works according to building type. Michael Hesse, Wolfgang Schache, Walter Kambartel and others have contributed essays on urban planning; apartment, industrial and hospital building; on Kleihues' office and commercial buildings, and on his museums.
