Holzinger, Johannes Peter
This book features text in English and German. Linking art and architecture is one of the great Utopias of our century. Art has been released from its traditional bonds and sees itself faced with a world that has made systems independent to the extent that a link between art and building based on the idea of unity is no longer admissible. The collapse of our 'world into pieces' also typifies that situation of the arts looking for new orders. Now, artist-architect Johannes Peter Holzinger, in co-operation with artists Eberhard Fiebig, Ottmar Horl/Formalhaut, Leonardo Mosso, Norbert Muller-Everling, Ansgar Nierhoff and Andreas Sobeck, working on the government buildings on the Hardthohe in Bonn, has succeeded in creating 'an avant-garde landmark that shows in the interplay of the arts that the avant-garde can also work positively in a team', as Dieter Ronte, director of the Stadtisches Kunstmuseum Bonn, put it in a contribution to this book. Holzinger links heterogeneous artistic positions in attempting an order of the different. The art in the outer areas of the complex mediates between the surroundings and the buildings. The visual signing system leads further into the centres, which are the same shape, of the existing administrative buildings, and creates some thing that is unmistakable there. The special structures designed by Holzinger, an intermediate form of architecture and landscape developed from the relief, include the earth itself, and in the casino architecture and art combine to form an indissoluble unit. 71pp.N.B.Slight mark on front d/j.

Duttmann, Martina
This work contains text in English and German. The new Leipzig/Halle airport has not just one, but two predecessors. One was Leipzig-Mockau airport, opened in 1923 and often still used after the Second World War in the GDR days to serve the Leipziger Messe. The other was Leipzig/Halle airport which opened in 1927 and by 1937 was already the second-largest airport in Germany. Passenger numbers had increased fourfold by 1994. A master plan was worked out for a second runway, intended for 3.5 million passengers per year. An open architectural competition followed and was won by Brunnert und Partner from Stuttgart. They won with a risky concept that ran counter to the master plan. Instead of filling the site between the two runways the architects designed a huge bridge structure spanning the railway track and integrating the car-park, the mall, the check-in hall, the access road and the transfer to the railway station. This concludes the first building phase, which begins at the existing terminal and ends beyond the railway lines. The concept of the bridge will not be complete until the second building phase, although it can already be made out quite clearly. 69pp.

Salas,Jonas Figueroa
This is the Deluxe Hardback edition in a black slipcase.Slight marking to slipcase,some slight creasing to head of d/j spine,From the foreword.It has often been said that books, as the ideas they hold, have a life of their own. A life which estranges itself from the desire and intentions of the author himself. This book was started several times. In fact, I believe it was written many times. Or maybe, it often rewrote itself, and each time it seemed to take a different course: its own course. It began as a mere bundle of data cards; it continued with the addition of different historical criticisms; it later launched into the field of comparison and illustration; then, it became imprisoned in technical complexity and it ended up being none and a bit of each, It is now what it itself wanted to be: an open area where the character, performing what Calderon de la Barca named 'The Great Theatre of the World', can be seen. A Great Theatre that could be besides labelled as 'Urban Planning'. When the life and works of somebody appear together in a book, as it seems to be the case here, they both can act as enemies and destroy each other. This book consists of three parts: The firsts two, called 'Logbook 1955-1975' and 'Logbook 1975-2000', reveal the work of Javier de Mesones; and the third, named 'Kaleidoscope', collects those experiences which, in my opinion, can provide a better understanding of his work and hence of his humanity." 569pp.
