'This English translation of Bruno Taut's The City Crown with informative essays by Matthew Mindrup and Ulrike AltenmA1/4ller-Lewis is a welcome addition to an understanding of this important modernist architect. The essays place The City Crown in the context of Taut's other utopian books, his extensive work in housing, and within the broader history of the early twentieth century.'

Bloggat om The City Crown by Bruno Taut
Matthew Mindrup is Senior Lecturer of Architecture at the University of Sydney. An architect by training, Matthew completed a Ph.D. In Architecture and Design at Virginia Tech University in 2007 on the physical and metaphysical coalition of two architectural models assembled by Kurt Schwitters in the early 1920s. Dr Mindrup's ongoing research in the history and theory of architectural design locates and projects the implications that materials have in the design process. Dr. Mindrup has presented some of this research at conferences and published others in The Journal of Architectural Education (JAE), Interstices, Wolkenkuckucksheim and his edited volume The Material Imagination: Reveries on Architecture and Matter from Ashgate Publishing. Ulrike AltenmA1/4ller-Lewis is Associate Professor at the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Prior to this position, she has taught at the Bauhaus-UniversitAt Weimar in Germany and at the Washington Alexandria Architecture Center of Virginia Tech. Ulrike is a registered architect in the United States as well as in Germany and has practised in both countries. In 2008 she earned her Doctoral degree at the Bauhaus-UniversitAt Weimar on contemporary school architecture in Finland. She investigated the correlation between pedagogical concepts and the spatial arrangements that best support teaching and learning. Ulrike's ongoing research focuses on translations of seminal German texts on architecture as well as on educational buildings and the impact of the built environment on human wellbeing and performance. Ulrike has presented her findings at numerous national and international conferences and her writings have been published in the USA, Germany, Switzerland and Turkey.
