Description

This second volume of the complete works of the German architect Oswald Mathias Ungers (born in 1926), published to commemorate the Vicenza retrospective of 1998, covers the period from 1991 to 1998. The book is organized in two sections, the first illustrating nineteen designs submitted over recent years to various German competitions in Berlin, Frankfurt, Cologne and Dusseldorf. The second covers twenty-one projects created over the same period, complete with technical dossier and notes on fixtures and furnishings. The volume ends with a chronology of the complete works. Ungers's work in the 1990s confirms the originality of the subtly subversive designs which have earned the architect international recognition.
