The German architectural studio of von Gerkan, Marg and Partner, or gmp, is renowned for large urban designs and projects such as Berlin's Tegal airport, fair grounds in Leipzig, and Stuttgart railway work. So it may come as a surprise that gmp also designs furniture. Yet many of the firm's projects have included interior furniture and design work. This generously illustrated book shows how gmp's aesthetics differ from their peers, and presents objects which are multifunctional, distinctive, deceptively simple, and enduring. As Meinhard von Gaerkan, the founder of the gmp firm has said, "Endurance requires that one should not get weary with the object, but become Fond of it, and be able to identify with it. And that means that it must have usefulness and radiate a sense of timelessness.... These are the same aims we seek in our architecture: creating with simple materials a high quality environment and developing a pleasing atmosphere."
This first comprehensive monograph of Sauerbruch Hutton presents the work of this innovative Swiss firm from the last seventeen years. This comprehensive book includes detailed descriptions of 60 works as well as 8 essays by the architects, and a complete index of all projects. While providing a panoramic overview the book also shows how each project was individually developed from its physical and social context, with its form emerging from functional, technical, spatial and sculptural considerations. It allows the reader to trace the development of their architectural thinking through the vehicle of built projects, their texts, and a considerable number of unrealized works. 650 illustrations
