Hans Kollhoff is one of Germany�s most widely discussed and prominent architects, his works ranging from the high-rise at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, and the conversion of the former Berliner Reichsbank to the Foreign Office of the new Berlin Republic. Kollhoff continues to define the essence of contemporary architecture while maintaining the standard of excellence and attention to detail that recall the world�s classic structures. This volume offers a close examination of twelve buildings, designed by Kollhoff between 1996 and 2001. Each building is depicted in five full-page duotone photographs, dramatically illustrating their facades�tectonic structure and highlighting Kollhoff�s characteristic use of light and shadow. An in-depth essay by architectural theorist Fritz Neumeyer analyzes Kollhoff�s many important contributions to the urban landscape.
