The Transparent State: Architecture and Politics in Postwar Germany
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415700191 | edition 2005 | PDF | 273 pages | 36,8 mb
This book examines the transformation of transparency as a metaphor in West German political thought to an analogy for democratic architecture, questioning the prevailing assumption in German architectural circles that transparency in governmental buildings can be equated with openness, accessibility and greater democracy.
The book traces the development of transparency in German political and architectural culture, tying this lineage to the relationship between culture and national identity, a connection that began before unification of the German state in the 18th century and continues today. The Weimar Republic and Third Reich periods are examined although the book focuses on the postwar period, looking at the use of transparency in the three projects for a national parliament, the 1949 Bundestag project by Hans Schwippert, the 1992 Bundestag building by Gunter Behnisch and the 1999 Reichstag renovation by Norman Foster. Transparency is an IMPORTANT issue in CONTEMPORARY architectural practice; this book will appeal to both the practicing architect and the architectural historian.
