Urlich Müther Shell Structures in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania
Rahel Lämmler and Michael Wagner
<p style="text-align: justify;">Any fan of mid-century cool will crave this impressive book on the works of East German engineer Ulrich Muther, a pioneer in concrete shell construction from the early 1960s. A beautifully photographed small-format book, this winner of the 2009 Architecture Book Prize from the Deutsches Architektur Museum brings together (for the first time) these fresh and technically impressive buildings. From the Space Age beach house on the cover to a myriad of modernism all around Germany, Muther's remarkable vision opens a whole new world to today's architecture buff. Includes plans, project information, survey maps and addresses to facilitate on-site visits (the book is just the right size for a glove compartment).
