Museum fur Kunsthandwerk Frankfurt am Main
Publisher: Stadt Frankfurt am Main Format: Softcover, 142pp, 210x210mm
Located in Frankfurt, Germany, the Museum fur Kunsthandwerk focuses on design, fashion and performativity. The architecture housing the Museum fur Kunsthandwerk was designed by Richard Meier – the American abstract artist and architect, and winner of the 1984 Pritzker Prize. In his design of the museum, Meier looked to the straightforward forms and clearly articulated spatial bodies of classical Modern architecture. Incorporating photography, essays, and detailed plans – as well as images of permanent exhibitions – this volume catalogues the museum building: an L-shaped complex composed of three cubes literally surrounding the Villa Metzler. Useful for architects, and for students interested in museum design, or more specifically in Richard Meier's strategies of architectural composition.
