Description - Hans Scharoun by Peter Blundell Jones

Hans Scharoun (1893-1972) was the most significant German architectural Modernist of the 1920's, staying in the country during the Third Reich to re-emerge during the 1950's. Achieving recognition with his controversial house for the Stuttgart Weissenhofsiedlung in 1927, his experiments with free planning and dynamic interior space continued throughout the wartime years. Post-war he emerged with a consolidated architectural philosophy exemplified by the Philarmonie concert hall in Berlin (1956-63) which remains the most sucessful 20th century model for this building type. This monographic overview of Scharoun's life and work explores his theoretical stance in relation to his contemporaries.
