Design and publisher's device on title page. "Architecture starts where twos stones are carefully put o top of each other." (Mies van der Rohe). It is the same principle that permeates the architecture of today as it does the primitive wood and stone constructions of the beginning. This documentation of basic architecture shows elementary forms, which are defined by the clarity of their structural principle. The objects depicted here are barns and stalls where the architectural concept shows in its purest form. Illustrated with extraordinarily striking full page b/w photographs of elementary architectural structures by Salzburg photographer Josef Dapra, working for the Residenz Verlag since 1955, including log cabins and simple brick buildings, transit sheds, gates, hay stacks, stone boundaries, entry doors, cobble stone pavement, among others. Contains descriptive list of photographs at front. Text in German. DJ with very light wear, binding in very good, interior in near fine condition. vg to near fine. Item #46022
