Synthese des arts: die Verbindung von Kunst und Architektur bei den Regierungsbauten auf der Hardthöhe in Bonn

Front Cover
Edition Axel Menges, 1998 - Architecture - 71 pages
Artist-architect Johannes Peter Holzinger, in co-operation with artists Eberhard Fiebig, Ottmar Horl/Formalhaut, Leonardo Mosso, Norbert Muller-Everling, Ansgar Nierhoff and Andreas Sobeck, working on the government buildings on the Hardthohe in Bonn, has succeeded in creating "an avant-garde landmark that shows in the interplay of the arts that the avant-garde can also work positively in a team", as Dieter Ronte, Director of the Stadtisches Kunstmuseum Bonn, put it in his contribution to this book.
Holzinger links heterogeneous artistic positions in attempting an order of the different. The art in the outer areas of the complex mediates between the surroundings and the buildings. The visual signing system leads further into the centres, which are the same shape, of the existing administrative buildings, and creates something that is unmistakable there. The special structures designed by Holzinger, an intermediate form of architecture and landscape developed from the ground relief, include the earth itself, and in the casino architecture and art combine to form an indissoluble unit.
