Zamp Kelp: expanding space

Front Cover
Wiley, Feb 28, 2000 - Architecture - 128 pages
Zamp Kelps work understands the quality of todays cities by their inner dynamism, arising from within the system of the city. Explained in this book is how he defines the qualities of urbanism by the multitude of signs of destruction and potentiality which calls for a confrontation between empirical materiality and architecture. The book also appreciates why his work is essentially social, in that it is truthfully and easily comprehensible. It is because of these factors, that it is truly astonishing work. First volume to ever present the complete works of this internationally renowned architect. Lavish color and black and white photographs and drawings throughout. Publication coincides with the first ever exhibition of Zamp Kelps complete works in Germany.
