New National Gallery Berlin

New National Gallery  Berlin

Mies van der Rohe envisaged a glass and steel temple for the New National Gallery of Art, Berlin - a sort of shrine to German art. The commission was one which touched the architect deeply, coming as it did after a 60-year career; it was the last building completed in Mies's lifetime and the culmination of his life's work and aesthetic ideas.

On August 13, 1961, under the cover of darkness, East German authorities sealed the border between East and West Berlin using a hastily constructed barbed wire fence. Over the next twenty-eight years of the Cold War, the Berlin Wall grew to become an ever-present physical and psychological divider in this capital city and a powerful symbol of Cold War tensions. Similarly, stark polarities arose in nearly every aspect of public and private life, including the built environment. In Architecture, Politics, and Identity in Divided Berlin Emily Pugh provides an original comparative analysis of selected works of architecture and urban planning in both halves of Berlin during the Wall era, revealing the importance of these structures to the formation of political, cultural, and social identities. Pugh uncovers the roles played by organizations such as the Foundation for Prussian Cultural Heritage and the Building Academy in conveying the political narrative of their respective states through constructed spaces. She also provides an overview of earlier notable architectural works, to show the precursors for design aesthetics in Berlin at large, and considers projects in the post-Wall period, to demonstrate the ongoing effects of the Cold War. Overall, Pugh offers a compelling case study of a divided city poised between powerful contending political and ideological forces, and she highlights the effort expended by each side to influence public opinion in Europe and around the World through the manipulation of the built environment.

A timely look at the ways in which glass is utilized in some of today's most beautiful and experimental building designs For centuries, glass has provoked fascination with its properties as a versatile material that permits light to enter buildings in spectacular ways. Much of modern architecture has been conceived by using glass to create increasingly minimal structures, to promote the notion of lightweight construction solutions, and to allow maximum daylight into buildings. New Glass Architecture showcases the changing ways that aesthetics and methods for using glass have been developing since the 1990s. The book begins with an introduction that traces the history of key moments in glass architecture--from the stained glass windows of Chartres Cathedral to the Crystal Palace of 1851, and early constructions by John Soane, Bruno Taut, Le Corbusier, and Mies van der Rohe. Author Brent Richards explains the importance of glass artists in the second half of the 20th century and describes developments in glass technology over the last twenty years. Beautifully illustrated with newly commissioned photographs by Dennis Gilbert, the book features twenty-five case studies of recent glass constructions from around the world by such leading architects as Foster and Partners, Frank Gehry, Herzog & de Meuron, Steven Holl, Toyo Ito & Associates, Jean Nouvel, Raphael Viñoly, and Peter Zumthor. Each building is illustrated in full color and accompanied by detailed drawings. New Glass Architecture features these buildings and more: - Chapel of Ignatius, Seattle - Condé Nast Café, New York - DZ Bank, Berlin - Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Philadelphia - Kunsthaus, Graz, Austria - Laban Dance Centre, London - Torre Agbar, Barcelona

In the years prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall, the leaders of the German Democratic Republic planned to construct a city center that was simultaneously modern and historical, consisting of both redesign of old buildings and new architectural developments. Drawing from recently released archival sources and interviews with former key government officials, decision-makers and architects, this book sheds light not only on this unique programme in postmodern design, but also on the debates which were taking place with the Socialist government.

Modern Architecture in Berlin

Modern Architecture in Berlin

The contents of this architectural guide vividly stand out against the backdrop of Berlins recent history a course of events as multifaceted as it was, in part, excessive, up until today.

Although Berlin's history encompasses more than eight hundred years and its beginnings reach back as far as the twelfth century, its present-day urban image is essentially characterised by structures and building measures from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Four 'modern' development phases, whose respective qualities were vastly different, played a determining role in this image: during the second half of the nineteenth century, against the backdrop of industrialisation, Berlin's rise from a comprehensible Prussian capital and residence to an expanding metropolis of the German Empire; the 1920 consolidation of the city with the surrounding ninety-three townships, rural communities and properties to form "Greater Berlin"; following the destruction of World War II, working "back to back" politically, territorially, and regarding the look of Berlin's divided, urban structure until 1990; and from the reunification to the present-day, the ongoing structural and spatial connections as well as architectural refinements required for Berlin's role as capital of the new Federal Republic. The contents of this architectural guide vividly stand out against the backdrop of Berlin's recent history -- a course of events as multifaceted as it was, in part, excessive, up until today. This publication deliberately focuses on the city's last one hundred years when, generation by generation, Berlin daringly and almost obsessively rediscovered itself architecturally. The selected examples not only convey a visually impressive and representative longitudinal progression, but also in which form the most provocative of social movements, changes and breaks presented themselves in the architecture of the city. With texts and images, the book presents 466 architectural works built from 1907 to the present day. The author's choices support the greater intention to present what can now be deemed contemporary, typical, and exemplary about every period of Berlin's diverse, irregular, and amazingly rich architectural history. That the examples offered here blatantly declare themselves products of the 'modern age' and 'Neues Bauen' permits them to be understood as a »manifesto in images which consolidates to a twentieth-century architectural collage, whose quality and wide range grant it an unquestionable uniqueness.

Appraising the redevelopment of Berlin since the late nineteenth century, Elizabeth A. Strom details how the contests between politicians, bureaucrats, architects, and developers have become especially prominent since reunification. Whether addressing the historical struggle to shape the city into the important world capital that it is today, charting the (re)creation of Berlin as a national government center, or exploring the city's massive economic restructuring, Building the New Berlin illustrates the intimate relationship between architecture and politics in an ongoing dialogue about whom the city should serve. Strom suggests that Berlin is a unique case study of city building in the twentieth century due to Berlin's turbulent battles over the central city, the seat of national and local governance. Nonetheless, these tensions provide fertile ground for the study of the central questions of urban political economy. Strom has fashioned an accessible, well-written and perceptive study that not only is a valuable addition to urban development literature, but also provides a foundational understanding of the debate and controversy in the planning of Berlin's city center in the 1990s.
