Paul Schneider-Esleben. Architekt (German Edition) Summary

Paul Schneider-Esleben. Architekt (German Edition) by Adrian von Buttlar

Paul Schneider-Esleben (1915-2005) is a paragon of architecture in the young Federal Republic: his innovative power shows itself in his Dusseldorf buildings, such as the large glass Haniel parking structure (1950-53), the Mannesmann Building (1955-58), the first high-rise in postwar Germany, and the Rochus Church (1952-55). He was always enormously interested in the visual arts: he collaborated with, for example, Gunther Uecker, Heinz Mack, Josef Piene, and Joseph Beuys on the design for the Rolandschule (1957-61). With the Cologne-Bonn airport (1962-71) he succeeded in developing both a typologically influential design and a traffic concept that were emulated worldwide. Schneider-Esleben was a multifaceted designer who not only planned high-rise office buildings, cultural centers, schools, residential buildings, and churches, but furniture, jewelry, and his own yacht as well, with which he sailed across the Mediterranean. The catalogue, which includes recent photographs, invites readers to rediscover his multifarious oeuvre. Ausstellung/Exhibition: Architekturmuseum der TU Munchen in der Pinakothek der Moderne, 16.7.-18.10.2015
