    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Adolf Rading (1888–1957) developed the Breslau Academy of Art and Applied Art into one of the most interesting schools of “new architecture” in the Weimar Republic. The volume traces the architect’s career and networks and tracks his creations in exile in Haifa and London. Source texts with commentary present Rading’s theoretical approaches. The focus is also on issues related to the preservation of his buildings in today’s Wrocław.
