Architectural Guide to Christian Sacred Buildings: In Europe Since 1950-From Aalto to Zumthor Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nach dem großen Erfolg von â?ºEuropäischer Kirchenbau 1950-2000â?¹ wurde der Wunsch nach einer umfassenderen lexikalischen Dokumentation dieses aktuellen Themas laut. So entstand dieser Architekturführer, der einen Überblick über den europäischen Sakralbau nach 1950 gibt und auch die Entwicklungen im zentraleuropäischen Raum - von Polen bis Kroatien - berücksichtigt. Die 134 Bauten aus zwanzig Ländern werden in großzügigem Layout auf jeweils zwei bis vier Seiten ausführlich vorgestellt. Beigefügte Landkarten und das handliche Broschurformat machen aus dem Buch zudem einen Reiseführer für unterwegs.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive architectural guide to modern churches and other Christian buildings throughout Europe, this book looks at the finest examples built within the latter half of the twentieth century. Organized geographically, it features nearly 140 buildings from twenty countries, each with its own double page spread. Numerous photographs and plans offer an in-depth perspective of each building, while convenient and accessible maps help readers create their own itinerary. In addition, the volume also takes into account developments in the Central European region from the Czech Republic to Croatia, home of outstanding Christian architecture.
