Description

The Bavarian architect Hans Döllgast (1891 – 1974) was accepted into the international canon of modern architecture quite late, but then remained a part of it all the longer. His most important achievements after 1945 were the “creative restorations” of bu ildings in Munich that had been destroyed by war: the Alte Pinakothek, the Basilica of St. Boniface, and the major municipal cemeteries.

The work of Döllgast, described by the architect himself as a “combination of undisputable avant - garde and reserved re ar guard”, has always fascinated the Munich - based architectural photographer Klaus Kinold. Accordingly, the photographs in this richly illustrated volume were born of empathy and created as part of a personal project. Taken in the early 1980s, they are alr eady historic due to the destruction of some of Döllgast’s work. They also pay tribute to Döllgast the combative person, who with his controversially assessed restorations realised exemplary solutions for new construction in historic surroundings. The bili ngual volume includes the first English - language essays on Döllgast.
