Von Moos, Stanislaus
"Designing has less to do with inventing than with recombining stored architectural memories." By saying this, architects Heinz Hilmer and Christoph Sattler are trying to express that they are not inclined to give into the hope that is especially raised in Modernism of being able to invent something really new, but that instead they consciously take their bearings from constantly recurring forms of architecture and urbanism. They neither desire nor aim to design a quite different building or a quite different town, but to develop the building and the city as well as they possibly can from their particular context, literally building on the experience of the past. Another of the two architects' credos is that architecture is an independent discipline with its own laws, and that therefore it should not draw from other areas: "A building is neither a cave nor a tent, neither a tree nor an umbrella, neither a stand nor a machine, neither structure nor construction. A building is a building." Leafing through this book about Hilmer and Sattler's work over the last 25 years - from their first private house, built for philosopher Jurgen Habermas, a reflection on the white, cubic architecture of early Modernism, via the block-edge development in the centre of Karlsruhe and the Gemaldegalerie in the Tiergarten in Berlin down to the urban design for the area around Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, which helped to gain acceptance for the principle of the European city as a living tissue of buildings, streets and squares rather than an ultimately city-hostile agglomeration of high-rise buildings in this part of Berlin - what is conveyed as well as precision of detail, diversity and proportionality is above all the self-confidence of these two architects who are so sure of themselves. 243pp.
