Despite receiving the Pritzker Prize in 1997, the work of Norwegian architect Sverre Fehn (1924-2009) has seen surprisingly little literature coverage. One exception is Per Olaf Fjeld's "Sverre Fehn - The Pattern of Thoughts", published in 2009 by The Monacelli Press, an amalgamation of biography, work analysis and oral history that draws vastly on interviews, lectures and conversations with students. It is a rare example of a philosophy-driven book that succeeds in bringing to life the theoretical side of architecture, mainly due to the fact that Fehn's thoughts and design approaches are clear and derive from easily comprehensible sources. The book is a thought-provoking study of one of my favorite Scandinavian architects and will surely serve as reference for further studies of individual aspects of Fehn's work.

Probably the most "beuysian" work complex of Joseph Beuys are his multiples, easily reproducible and affordable editions of idea carriers designed to spread Beuys's ideas. The present catalogue raisonné, published by Schirmer/Mosel and edited by Jörg Schellmann, collects all of the artist's objects released between 1965 and the year of his death 1986 and as such unfolds a thought provoking panorama of objects, prints, postcards etc. etc. that at the same time document Beuys's increasing politicization. In addition to the extensive catalogue of multiples the book also contains a lengthy interview between Beuys, Schellmann and Bernd Klüser that lets the artist explain his ideas and intentions behind the work complex.

One of my most favorite architecture books: the two-volume monograph/work catalogue "Renaat Braem 1910-2001", edited by Jo Braeken and published by ASA Publishers in 2010. On more than 800 pages it features about 300 of Braem‘s projects, both built and unbuilt, on photos, plans and drawings, the latter being particularly beautiful. Besides Jo Braeken‘s through biographical study the book also contains several essays, one of them by Francis Strauven, that e.g. describe Braem‘s role in the development of social housing in Belgium or the ideology behind his designs. The book is both a visual and reading pleasure that only has one downside: it‘s Dutch-only.

This small book of 60 pages, edited by Sabine Schneider and published in 2003 by Spurbuchverlag as accompanying catalogue of an exhibition @weissenhofgalerie, is the only publication on the work of German architect Klaus Franz (1923-99) who has clearly been influenced by Le Corbusier. Although his œuvre is small, the Maria Regina church (1961-67) in Fellbach and the Don Bosco community center (1970-72) in Fellbach are among the best buildings of German postwar modern. The book features the previously mentioned buildings, as well as others, in particularly beautiful period photos and plans. In addition it also includes interesting statements and stories by friends, students and colleagues that shed light on the at times complicated character of Klaus Franz. An important and very dense publication!
