Synopsis: Sauerbruch and Hutton are unique among contemporary architects in their redefinition of colour as an essential material of architecture. The polychromatic treatment of their buildings created over the past twenty years reflect and concentrate the colours, forms and energies of the contemporary city. Simultaneously image and sculpture, ornament and text, they allow the complex technical reality of a building to disappear behind a powerful aesthetic experience. Beside Sauerbruch Hutton's renowned buildings such as the GSW Headquarters in Berlin, the Federal Environmental Agency Dessau or Munich's Brandhorst Museum, this book also shows their more recent work. Highlighting the sensual force of colour, Noshe's vibrant photographs reveal the architects' search for the expression of an architecture of sustainability that transcends both technical perfection and energy-efficient performance. Words by Jonathan Glancey, Louisa Hutton and Matthias Sauerbruch complement the photographs.
