Stressing Wachsmann. Structures for a Future/Strukturen für eine Zukunft

Stressing Wachsmann – Structures for a Future offers a comprehensive overview of German-American architect Konrad Wachsmann’s life (1901-1980), work and influence. Wachsmann’s multifarious pioneering achievements and his unconditional faith in future technologies and methods testify to his profound humanism. Klaus Bollinger, Florian Medicus and the Akademie der Künste, Berlin (Eds.)

His life-long obsession with detail and industrial production paired with keen optimism have not only left a lasting mark on the history of architecture in the 20th century, but also challenge today’s architects to think and build better.
