Edited by Stephen Bates, Bruno Krucker and Katharina Leuschner
Building Register is a research programme which examines historically significant buildings as references within the current architectural debate on housing and urbanism. The programme takes the form of a series of surveys documenting both the general characteristics of projects and selected areas of detailed study.
The buildings are explored both at the urban scale and in detail, at the level of a single room or construction assembly. This may include the internal structure of a large residential complex in relation to its urban form, or the defining presence of a material or detail in view of the effect they have on the urban context.
The second series of Studio Krucker Bates' investigation of historical buildings includes:
Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire
Parc Plein Soleil, Geneva
Munich, 2013, 20 x 26.5 cm, illustrated, set of five books. Paperback.
