James Stirling: Die Neue Staatsgalerie Stuttgart
Publisher: Stuttgart 1984 Author: Thorsten Rodiek ISBN: 3775701990 Format: Softcover, 119pp, 280x230mm
This volume, through plans, essay and detailed photography, explores James Stirling’s reimagining of Stuttgart’s Neue Staatsgalerie, an art gallery and museum established in 1843. In 1984 the reopening of the Neue Staatsgalerie designed by James Stirling transformed the once provincial gallery into one of Europe's leading museums.
The building was a controversial design by James Stirling, and initially was not well-received by the German press. Over time, however, it became regarded as a great architectural success. The complexity of the project – and its references to existing buildings both old and new – merits close study.
This book contains mostly German-language text, but includes an English-language liftout.
