Synopsis: Otto Ernst Schweizer (1890 - 1965), architect, philosopher and teacher, had a crucial effect on the path of Modern architecture with both his projects and his writings. He was trained in the school of Theodor Fischer and made a name for himself both by his early works and competition entries in the Expressionist period, e. g. for a high-rise building in Friedrichstrasse in Berlin or for a new design for Munsterplatz in Ulm. In the late twenties, he gained international recognition with his buildings in Nuremberg, the Labour Exchange, the Planetarium, the sports facilities and the central Milchhof, with his stadium for the city of Vienna and his ideal design for a metropolis, developed as a reaction to Le Corbusier's "Ville contemporaine" and "Plan voisin de Paris". In the thirties, when he was forbidden to build, Schweizer, in the context of his teaching at the Technische Hochschule in Karisruhe, was concerned with a philosophy of architecture, with fundamental questions of building, which he was able to draw on after the war as suggestions for the redevelopment of cities that had been destroyed. In 1960 he built his last work, the Kollegiengebaude for the University of Freiburg, his "architectural large form", which again showed his spiritual attitude and the formal language that he had developed in the twenties and thirties, and that reached on into the new period after 1945 without losing its validity.
Product Description: An architect, philosopher, and teacher who had a crucial effect on modern architecture.
