Overview

Karl Friedrich Schinkel called his designs for a palace on the Acropolis in Athens and for Orianda Castle in the Crimea a »beautiful dream«. They date from 1834 and 1838 and were Schinkel’s last major projects, in which he presented his ideal of architecture in brilliant drawings and watercolours, as if in a last will and testament. These lithographs are reprinted in a large format, complemented by the no less spectacular lithographs of the two Pliny villas, Tusculum and Laurentinum. These works also show Schinkel’s impressive ability to demonstrate and convey his architectural ideas. This book is a special edition of the same title published in two volumes (ISBN 978-3-930698-11-0).
