Author: WISE, MICHAEL Z., Title: Capital Dilemma. Germany`s Search for a New Architecture of Democracy.
Description: New York, Princeton Architectural Press 1998. `Thomas Jefferson may have deemed classical forms to be ideally suited to the expression of American democracy, but in the Federal Republic of Germany these same forms often bring out a response that is almost phobic,` writes Michael Wise in this book on the chronic controversy surrounding postwar German public architecture. A journalist who has covered Central Europe, Wise brings narrative flair and thoroughgoing research to this story of the politics, aesthetics, and historical implications of Germany`s decision, following reunification, to move its government seat from Bonn to Berlin (Verlagstext). - Einbd. gering stockfl., ansonsten sehr guter Zustand.
