International Architecture: Bauhausbücher 1
Walter Gropius (Editor)
Lars Müller Publishers, March 2019

Hardcover | 7 x 9 inches | 108 pages | 100 illustrations | English | ISBN: 978-3037785843 | $45.00

Publisher Description:
When the Bauhaus moved to Dessau in 1924, it was finally possible to publish the first of the Bauhausbücher that Walter Gropius (1883–1969) and Làszlò Moholy-Nagy (1895–1946) had first conceived of in Weimar. The series was intended to give insight into the teachings of the Bauhaus and the possibilities it offered for incorporating modern design into everyday aspects of an ever-more-modern world. First in the series was Gropius’ International Architecture, an overview of the modern architecture of the mid-1920s and an early attempt to articulate what would come to be known as International Style architecture. In a brief preface, Gropius summarized the guiding principles he identified uniting the avant-garde around the world. But the real thrust of the book is visual, with an extensive illustrated section showing buildings in Europe and the Americas. According to Gropius, these illustrations show the “development of a consistent worldview” that dispensed with the prior decorative role of architecture and expressed itself in a new language of exactitude, functionality and geometry.

Barkow Leibinger Designs Triangular "Lighthouse" Hotel and Boarding House for Frankfurt's Waterfront

Barkow Leibinger has unveiled details of their competition-winning proposal for the Waterfront Hotel and Boarding House in Molenkopf, Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Located at a prominent site on the city’s Molenspitze, the west-facing triangular point of land sits at the end of an industrial peninsula used for warehouses and container shipping at Frankfurt’s East Bay.

The Barkow Leibinger scheme manifests as a triangular pinwheel with offset corners defined by the depths of hotel rooms. The mass of the 60-meter-tall building is further broken down by a “folded accordion façade” to maximize the panoramic views of the European Central Bank, and Frankfurt skyline attainable from the site.

David Wolferstetter Architektur (DWA) has collaborated with a team led by Moritz Mungenast from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in the design of a 3D-printed façade, destined to serve as the new entrance of the Deutsches Museum in Munich, Germany. The multifunctional, translucent façade element allows for “completely free architectural design” with functions such as ventilation, insulation, and shading already integrated into the new façade.

The façade element, measuring 60 centimeters wide and one meter high, strikes a snow-white, delicate aesthetic with light shining diffusely through the surface. Within the material, cells provide stability and air-filled cavities for optimum insulation, while thin tubes circulate air for ventilation. The wave-like form of the facade also generates bulges to provide shade, while a microstructured surface ensures optimal acoustics.
