Hardcover New Ulrich Franzen was born in 1921 in Dusseldorf. He studies architecture with Marcel Breuer and Walter Gropius at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. ... From 1950-55 he worked for I.M. Pei before opening his own architectural office in New York in 1955. His encounter with Modernism had a determining influence on his work, and Franzen soon developed his own individual architectural language. Reference to context and collage, the bringing together of different elements in free composition are typical themes in his work. The spectrum of his architecture spans elegant, generous residences and severe, rigorous buldings for industry and research. He has also worked on projects in urban development. This monograph presents the oeuvre of Franzen for the first time. It was written by the renowned architectural critic, Peter Blake and attractively designed by the well-known graphic designer, Massimo Vignelli. Very nice copy. Read more Show Less
