This collection of 40 years of plans, photos and perspectives from Eckhard Gerber and his namesake German firm shows evolution on the one hand and continuity on the other. This volume represents some 70 distinct projects, ranging from residential buildings to colleges and libraries, and from sports facilities to offices, from a concert hall in Leipzig to the national library in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Their characteristic features and motifs, in addition to intuitive attention to functionality, are interior and exterior rooms that encourage social exchange and interpersonal communication, and inspired solutions to creating landscape space in densely populated urban areas. With four introductory essays.
