About this Item

Neuware - The architect is at all times also an artist. How otherwise would he be able to tame the three-dimensionality of space and subdue the urges of physics and structural mechanics with the creations of his fantasy This creativity is however mostly restricted purely to its own field. Rob Krier is an exception. Since the beginning of his career in construction, he has always seen his love of art as a vocation - one which he nurtures parallel to his work. Fine art should stand in dialogue with architecture and it is Krier's ambition to have iconographic themes brought into the latter, so that they might speak equally to both the occupants of a building and to bystanders, In his Pictorial Journal 1954-1971, Rob Krier describes how his twin passion for fine art and architecture emerged. Born into a household of gifted artists and craftsmen, he came into contact with art and architecture as a very young boy and took his own first steps in painting and sculpture in his early years. His enthusiasm for the architecture of Rome cemented his determination to become an architect. Krier tells of his grammar-school years in Echternach and his university studies in Munich in words just as enthralling as his first taste of professional life with Oswald Mathias Ungers and Frei Otto. His autobiographical notes are accompanied by numerous sketches, drawings and sculptures, which were produced during this period and in which the author's multifaceted experiences find artistic manifestation. 671 pp. Englisch, Deutsch.

About this title

Synopsis:

The architect is at all times also an artist. How otherwise would he be able to tame the three-dimensionality of space and subdue the urges of physics and structural mechanics with the creations of his fantasy? This creativity is however mostly restricted purely to its own field. Rob Krier, born in 1938 in Grevenmacher, Luxembourg, is an exception. Since the beginning of his career in construction, he has always seen his love of art as a vocation – one which he nurtures parallel to his work.

In his Pictorial Journal 1954–1971, Rob Krier describes how his twin passion for fine art and architecture emerged. His autobiographical notes are accompanied by numerous sketches, drawings and sculptures, which were produced during this period and in which the author’s multifaceted experiences find artistic manifestation.
