Ever since the debates around 1900, led by protagonists

such as Georg Dehio, Alois Riegl, Paul

Clemen, and others, modern monument preservation

has been regarded as a value-based applied

historical science. Since that time, monument

preservation theory has been shaped by

the search for objectifiable criteria that can be

applied to the valuation and rating of traditional

architectural structures and the assessment of

their practical effectiveness as cultural monuments.

The articles in this volume trace the

theory of valuation from a historical perspective

and present an overview of current issues and

problems. The book presents aspects of monument

preservation in relation to urban planning,

as well as debates about recent issues concerning

iconography and cultures of remembrance

and how they affect monument preservation.

In addition, there are summaries of the history

of terminology and of the development of the

theory behind selected historical valuations.

The publication resulted from the research

project “Denkmal – Werte – Dialog. Historischkritische

Analyse und systematisch-praktische

Konzeption denkmalpflegerischer Leitwerte“,

sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education

and Research.

At vacant sites, second hand spaces draw on

the atmosphere, the traces, the remains, and

the history of their previous uses. Their actors

develop an individual aesthetic out of the

site that stands out due to its simplicity and

elements of surprise are created in the city.

Second hand spaces evolve against the background

of different demands on urban spaces

What challenges does urban residential building

face today? How can cities adapt to changing

demographic, economic and ecologic

circumstances, as well as to the new requirements

of future residents? What is currently

considered as exemplary residential building?

These were the questions posed by the

“Ungewöhnlich Wohnen!” (“Unusual Living”)

contest, held by the city of Bremen in 2011.

It sought proposals for five housing developments

from the nineteen-fifties and nineteensixties.

The objective was to amalgamate hybrid

usages, such as living and working etc.,

integrating them into the city and society.

German

The city was also to be made more attractive

for newcomers.

This book provides detailed documentation of

the five winning designs by Spengler-Wiescholek

(Hamburg), Arno Brandlhuber, Finn Geipel,

BarArchitekten (all from Berlin) and Kempe Thill

(Rotterdam). These exemplary models of qualitative,

sustainable and achievable residential

buildings are complemented by twenty further

projects in Bremen, whose standards and aspirations

are on a par with the award-winning

designs.

Under what cultural conditions is qualitative

design possible at the beginning of the twenty-first

century? What concrete impact does

successful design have?

The answers to these questions are to be

found less in the objects themselves than in

the people who use these objects and are

defined by their use. This book considers

the cultural environment in which designing

takes place, as well as its impact on people’s

Architecture Tendencies

German

lives. Successful design is understood as responsible

design and therefore has ethical

connotations, because design as long-term

action sets standards that it has to adhere to.

The contributions to the book are based

largely on the presentations made at the

Werkbund conference in September 2011

(German Work Federation of Architects, Artists

and Builders), held at Goethe University

in Frankfurt/Main.

As a result of the energy transition brought

about by the nuclear reactor disaster in Fukushima,

the number of wind energy plants

in Germany will increase further significantly.

Already now they are a prominent feature of

the landscape in many places. The plants are

not undisputed: ecologically they undoubtedly

make sense, but their conspicuous presence

in the landscape is also vehemently contested.

This book considers the question of how

wind energy plants can be integrated appropriately

and aesthetically into the landscape

German

and provides concrete suggestions for solutions

regarding the positioning and layout of

the masts. For the first time the wind energy

plants are viewed not in isolation, but in relation

to a comprehensive landscape aesthetic. What

qualifies as a beautiful landscape nowadays?

Which natural, cultural, historical, and contemporary

elements, structures, and significances

is it composed of? And how can wind energy

plants be integrated into this?

Sustainable planning and building have become

a key issue in architecture. Climate

change, resource depletion and economic crises

are also increasingly forcing architects and

planners to question traditional methods and

solutions. In recent years, research institutions

and universities, as well as architecture and

engineering companies, have started to seek

new concepts for the implementation of sustainable

architecture and urban development.

Münster School of Architecture held a series

of symposia in summer 2011, in which these

topics were debated extensively with international

experts. Building the Future provides a

summary of the scope and significance of current

concepts. The aim is to present a compre-

What influence do new media have on active

participation and involvement in the city? How

can planning be democratically legitimized?

What are the challenges faced by planning law

and procedures, as a result of the increasingly

vocalized requests for participation? And in

what ways can and should citizens’ contributions

complement the knowledge of experts?

The involvement of civil society is a synonym

for the willingness to shape the living environment,

therefore it is increasingly becoming a

permanent feature of politics and planning.

Volume 6 of the IBA series discusses the opportunities

brought by this development and

enGlisH/German

its consequences for the future of cities. Practical

examples afford insight into the planning

and participation methods of several German

cities and world regions. The experiences IBA

Hamburg have had with very varied participation

models, commented on from a range of

perspectives, form a central point of focus.

Lastly, it is about the relationship between

planners and politicians on the one hand and

citizens on the other, and how the planning

procedures should adapt to the constantly

changing social circumstances in a forwardlooking

and innovative way.

Architektur + AnAlyse

“architektur + analyse” is a series of books by the Institute of Architectural Theory, History of Art and

Cultural Studies at Graz University of Technology, edited by its director Anselm Wagner. The series

deals with topics relating to international architecture and architectural debates of the twentieth

and twenty-first centuries, including certain regional issues of international relevance that have an

impact on the current discussion. All the volumes take a critical and analytical approach to architecture,

which is always presented within a wider cultural, social, and political context. The spectrum

ranges from the monographic analysis of exemplary buildings to the discussion of theoretical issues

regarding future developments.

“architektur + analyse” is targeted towards architecture and art history experts and students, as

well as towards architecture enthusiasts. Volumes of the series will be in German or English.

lAndscript

“Landscript” is a publication on landscape aesthetics inviting authors

from different disciplines to invest some thought on established modes

of perceiving, representing and conceiving nature. Anchored at the

Chair of Landscape Architecture of Professor Christophe Girot at the

ETH in Zurich, it is steered by an editorial board comprised of distinguished

international experts from various fields of visual studies, landscape

design research as well as philosophy. The publication warrants

excellence in theory and acts as a revelator of conventional perceptions

of landscape. The goal of “Landscript” is to cultivate the debate on landscape

aesthetics at a scholarly level. It will examine what conceptual

tools are at our disposal to transcend the banal deductive commentary

of landscape analysis we have grown accustomed to and discuss these

issues openly and critically by focusing on the way we actually think,

look and act upon landscape sites and nonsites today. As a discussion

platform for the contemporary aesthetics of landscape, “Landscript”

will rekindle a theoretical debate that has been seriously lagging behind

in the present visual and environmental revolution.

Should the circumstances and tendencies of

the current state of the world be allowed to

affect architecture? That is a fundamental and

frequently recurring question as regards the demands

placed on architecture.

Not only the form, but also the structure, organization,

appearance and appeal of buildings are

governed by permanent criteria. Based on the

assumption that people’s spatial requirements

and design aspects resulting from construction

requirements are of a stable nature, the answer

to the question above is no. Instead, architecture

is subject to a constant process of evaluation

and assessment according to fundamental

Architecture arcHiTecTs

German

architectural principles, which are subsequently

interpreted and shaped individually for each

new project.

This book presents selected buildings by Petra

and Paul Kahlfeldt. A common feature of all of

their projects is that, regardless of their purpose

and their type of function, they all adhere to the

same principles. Therefore the buildings are not

presented chronologically and individually, but

in thematic sequences. This enables the clear

identification of principles, relationships, connections

and similarities. Furthermore, it brings

architecture to the fore as a cultural form of

building.

General planning signifies the renaissance of

the master builder, in the sense of a building

manager with overall responsibility, who brings

all the lines of work together. In an engineering

office that practices general planning, all the

important specialist engineers cooperate with

architects from the very beginning of the project,

as partners on an equal footing. This can

reduce conflicts of interest and liability risks,

especially when applied to complex large-scale

projects, such as hospitals, schools and industrial

buildings, and it facilitates coordination for

the owner of the building.

German

However, there are two even more important

aspects: firstly, the benefits for the owner of

the building, resulting from having a general

planner and from the synergies that occur

when the project team develops integrated

solutions with regard to the planning objectives.

Secondly, general planners can work

more economically and flexibly than a general

contractor.

This book documents aspects of the qualitative

and economic added value afforded by

general planning, through 20 expert contributions

featuring examples of buildings realized

successfully by agn niederberghaus & partner

Can aesthetic concepts reflect and provide answers

for ethical aspects and issues? Is “more

ethics, less aesthetics” applicable, according

to the motto of the Venice Biennial for architecture

in the year 2000? Or isn’t “more aesthetics”

in fact just what is required to encourage

reflection about ethical responsibilities and

dimensions in architecture, art, and design?

This publication is a collection of reflections

about the ethical and political dimensions of

enGlisH/German

creations, presented from the point of view

of art, architecture, design, and curatorial practice.

The contributions range from historical

reviews to future-oriented outlooks, illustrating

interdisciplinary connections.

The man-made peninsular Palm Jumeirah on

the coast of Dubai is a superlative project and

an exemplary model for the Gated Communities

and Resorts that have developed worldwide

in property bubbles. The development

may be spectacular, but cannot conceal the

fact that the former marketing success story is

faced with serious problems. How can an isolated

anti-urban exclave be opened up and integrated?

Can issues concerning networking,

The Charter of Dubai is a manifesto of critical

urban transformation. It subversively encourages

the conversion of isolated quarters into

a socially and ecologically open urban space.

The detailed catalog of the individual measures,

richly illustrated with clear sketches and

references, make the Charter a handbook for

Where language fails, pictures take over!

This book shows for the first time the entire cycle of 56 “autobiographical”

pictures by Günther Uecker. The well-known

painter, bookmaker, graphic designer, sculptor and object artist

has set high standards in many fields.

What makes this title special is that the artist largely determined

the design and layout of the book. His handwritten introduction

to the themes is printed in the book as a facsimile.

A well-known painting by Koen Vermeule is titled out and about.

It defines his work as a whole, because the artist, who lives

in Amsterdam, is constantly travelling all around the world. His

paintings originate on the streets. He focuses in on them, starts

to shape them and to invent stories. His art is related to street

art and comics, which is where his art began. His artistic language

is as vibrant as life itself.

The Museum of Fine Arts in Bern and the Lentos Museum of Modern

Art in Linz are presenting a comprehensive retrospective on the Irish-

American artist Sean Scully, who is one of the most important representatives

of contemporary abstract painting.

Scully has created an astounding range of atmospheric paintings. His

works are composed of striped patterns with strict lines and strongly

contrasting colors. He applies layers of different shades of color with

coarse paintbrushes, whereby the layers below shine through in varying

degrees. It appears as if the layers of color are communicating with

each other and with the viewer.

The actual focus of the traveler series is on the works which mention

famous personalities in the history of the discovery of Nueva

Espana in their title, evoking a wide range of contexts with regard

to the power of imagination of our present-day world view. It starts

with the letter to humboldt in 2009, a work which contrasts the

spirited animism of the indigenous view of nature with the systematic

analysis of the Prussian polymath, who undertook a research

expedition to America from 1799 to 1804 and also crossed Mexico.

The Kunstquadrat series is dedicated to twenty-first century art, presenting

it in all its diversity. The series combines classical bookbinding

(half-cloth with embossing) with contemporary art. The purpose

is to present new works by the older generation of painters, as well

as to seek out the innovations of the younger generation, who are

constantly driving new developments within fine arts.

collector’s editions: The Kunstquadrat series offers not only very

personal and individual books about contemporary artists, but also

artist’s editions with prints, hand drawings or paintings.

Peter Schnürpel completed his art education

in the nineteen-sixties at the famous Leipzig

University of the Arts. His early sketches regarding

the world of sport already showed his

ability to go beyond the narrow subject matter

and make universal statements. His figures

represent exclamations or a lapsing into

silence, are motionless or driven by high levels

of dynamism. Furthermore, he makes expert

use of light and dark contrasts, of making an

illuminated form emerge out of the dark, of

German

figures disappearing into the shadows, of the

flashing of a ray of hope in the distance…

For the first time the pages of this book bring

together graphics that use a range of techniques

(etching, serigraphy, lithography) and

set them against later overpaintings. They

show the artist’s striving to find universal ways

of expressing existential aspects of life, such

as love and happiness, joy and sorrow, finiteness

and death.

Aylin Langreuter’s art can not be pigeonholed.

Concept art, object art, design, graphics,

sculpture: none of these wholly define

her art, although it contains elements of each.

Her intellectual and artistic work lies somewhere

between obvious delight in the objects

and their philosophical significance. She creates

objects that can not be used, develops

scripts that can not be read, thereby placing

her objects outside of reality in the realm of

the individual imagination. “However, it is not

At first glance Helge Leiberg’s elongated figures

with their thin bodies and big hands seem

to remain motionless in their places, but with

intent observation movement suddenly comes

into play: the words that spring to mind include

swinging, strutting, gyrating and dancing. It is a

kind of expressive dance that mirrors the soul,

revealing emotions such as excitement and

passion, affection and disgust. As a rule the

Helge Leiberg has incorporated dance into his

performances on an equal footing with painting

and music, and his works as a draftsman

and artist’s books are also characterised by

many variations of dance. In his sculptures – all

collected for the first time in this publication –

he succeeds in condensing these many forms

of expression into moments of tremendous

tension and concentration.

The serviceplan collection follows a clearly

defined concept: Abstract Art since 1948 of a

high aesthetic standard. This guiding principle

is reflected in the introductory essay by Prof.

Helmut Friedel, the director of the Lenbachhaus

museum in Munich: “Indescribably beautiful.

Abstraction!”

At the beginning of the twentieth century,

abstract art was the progressive driving force

of the modern era, until the National Socialist

regime in Germany imposed a painting ban

on all the important protagonists of this art

genre. This verdict also affected most of the

painters in the serviceplan collection. The year

1948 became the starting point for a new era

Symbolistische Abstraktion

ernst Wilhelm nAy

hekAte PhAse

kleine Verkündung i, 1945

Und das sind die Bilder der Sammlung Serviceplan aus allen vier abstrakten Phasen:

FugAle PhAse 1949-1951

In der sogenannten Hekate Phase hat Nay nach 1945 seine bedrückenden Kriegsjahre

und die Hoffnung auf Freiheit, Unabhängigkeit und einen Neubeginn seiner

Kunst verarbeitet. Das Thema ist der Mensch, die Farben sind zum Teil berauschend

schön, die Formen eruptiv, expressionistisch, die Darstellung bleibt allerdings im

Wesentlichen noch recht gegenständlich.

Ab 1949 ändern sich die private Lebensverhältnisse von Nay – Ordnung kehrt ein

durch die zweite Eheschließung –, und er befasst sich mit der Anfertigung von

zehn Farblithografien, die ihn zwingen, seine Formen in Einzelteile zu zerlegen und

nach Farben getrennt auf die Lithosteine zu übertragen. Diese durch die Technik

erzwungene „Analyse und Synthese“ (Werkverzeichnis II, S. 294) veranlasste Nay,

auch das Ergebnis seiner Bilder nach klar konturierten Symbolen, Zeichen und geometrischen

Formen zu ordnen. Es entstehen Bilder, die zwischen gegenständlicher

und ungegenständlicher Kunst liegen. Die kunstinteressierte Öffentlichkeit nahm

nur wenig Notiz davon, was Nay, der sich seiner Arbeitsweise immer sehr sicher

war, erst recht zu einer besonders großen und reichhaltigen Produktion veranlasste.

„Figurale-Ballett“ nennt Nay das Bild unserer Sammlung, so wie viele Bilder dieser

Phase musikbezogene Titel tragen. Man erkennt auch andeutungsweise Elemente

von Notenschlüsseln und durch Wiederholungen und formale Umkehrungen, die

zu einer klaren, komponierten Bildordnung führen, diesen „fugalen“ Charakter, der

einen tatsächlich an eine Figur von Bach erinnert. Das Bild unserer Sammlung aus

der zeitlichen Mitte der fugalen Phase, ist in zurückhaltenden, dezenten Farben

gemalt – unspektakulär und beruhigend in der Wirkung. Ausgestellt wurde es 1950

in Bad Schwalbach.

Norbert Wagenbrett studied at Leipzig University,

which had been dominated for decades

by the art concepts of Werner Tübke, Bernhard

Heisig and Wolfgang Mattheuer. This “intellectual

painting” was a fertile basis for the artist´s

portraits of people, which were also rooted

in the New Objectivity and the verism of the

nineteen-twenties and nineteen-thirties. However,

Wagenbrett is concerned with the present

day, fervently seeking people’s unknown

faces behind their everyday masks. With his

highly disciplined and delicate painting technique,

he expertly succeeds in making what is

characteristic about his models, and their socalled

“inner life,” visible.

“I approach people and look for their dreams

and find their fears, discover degrees of similarity,

see portraits. They are portraits of these

particular people, infinitely unique, incomparable

with any other object in the world, and

yet in everyday public life the faces seem to

resemble each other, to blend into one and to

merge, in the same way as thoughts, which

are no longer one’s own.”

Since professionalization began, female graphic

designers have been working actively and

successfully, but the artificial synthesis of

masculinity and artistic genius has repeatedly

prevented women—with few exceptions—to

be recognised in “official” design history. Still

today, despite the claim that the gender issue

is obsolete in graphic design, only a tiny percentage

of active female designers enjoy public

acclaim.

This opulently illustrated volume finally sets

out to fill this gap. It presents the most significant

female designers and portrays their paths

to professionalization, with numerous short

biographies alongside essays, sources and detailed

discussions with currently well-known

female designers.

Annett Zinsmeister works with space and architecture,

with structures and elements that

are taken out of their conventional contexts

and reassembled into new spaces and compositions.

She combines various disciplines (architecture,

art, design, science) and deals with

the subject of architecture through sketches,

photographs, installations, films and sculptured

spaces. The focus is on modular principles,

structures, dealing with utopias and the

identity of spaces, with social interaction, communication,

and the transformation of urban

spaces. Her works challenge our perceptions,

reveal daily habits, open up new perspectives

and the unexpected potential of inhospitable

and abandoned spaces. They prompt urban intervention

and transformation processes.

This book provides, for the first time, an overview

over Annett Zinsmeister’s frequently published

transdisciplinary works.

With contributions by Kai-Uwe Hemken, Claus

Pias, Simone Schimpf and others.
