"There is no "Neue Sachlichkeit," the slogan often used these days, as a contrast to "Alte Sachlichkeit (Old Objectivity)" or "un-objective." What's factual remains factual, and some objectivity can not be invented anew. In this sense we are presenting many examples juxtaposed with present architecture, to prove our claim in a few words. The form of buildings at all times is linked to function, building material, construction, environment and the time it is built in, but can be, at the same time, of almost timeless beauty. The first requirement to achieve such a timeless impression is objectivity, generous simplicity and clarity, independence from external accessories." (Author). The architect Johannes Martin Wolf was involved in all aspects of producing this work.Text in German. Name and number inked to inside front cover, name to front free endpapers.
