    Overview

    • Architectural parallels between different political systems in Europe
    • People, rules, buildings, theories – a synopsis in a new dimension
    • Contributions by numerous international experts

    Aims and Scope

    After the Second World War, a divided Europe was much affected by a period of reconstruction. This was influenced by the different political systems – in the socialist East and in the capitalist West, the focus was on cohesion in society and its cultural and architectural expression. In parallel to the rapidly progressing industrialization of the building industry, debates on the humanization of the built environment were led on both sides with great intensity. The volume shows how, on the back of existentialism, new monumentality, and socialist realism, quite similar concepts and strategies were developed in order to find answers to questions relating to adequate structures for new forms of community and identity.

    Supplementary Information

    Details

    Die internationalen Autoren des dreibändigen Werkes präsentieren die europäische Nachkriegsarchitektur in neuem Licht. Trotz geopolitischer Teilung und nationaler Differenzen werden die Entwicklungen in Ost und West erstmals im Zusammenhang gesehen: gegenseitige Wahrnehmung, Wissenstransfer und Kooperationen eröffneten Wege über Grenzen hinweg. Jeder Band ist einem Leitthema und seiner Entfaltung in sich überlagernden Zeitabschnitten gewidmet.
