More than anything else about architecture, Tobias Engelschall is fascinated by transformation. Between the regularity and randomness of architectural development, the new always emerges from what already exists. Every Zustand—every state of affairs, condition, configuration, every image in this book—attests only to the outcome of transformation. In their juxtaposition, Tobias Engelschall’s “Sehschule” presents what cannot be seen. With its thematic focus and careful selection, this topography includes mostly buildings that likely would never have appeared again in an architectural book after their initial publication. The book shows an exuberant multiplicity of formal languages, where one or another of them may effectively attain a new, unexpected quality. The publication was generously funded by Stiftung Hermann Reemtsma, Hamburg.

Committed to experimentation throughout his life, Parent questioned his field and his own practice in his unique polemical and provocative manner motivated by his desire to see ideas circulate and conventions challenged. The book is based on transcription of conversations allowing Parent’s unique storytelling voice and style to come through.

The Italo-Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi (1914–1992) forged a unique path with her bold designs. Spanning architecture, stage sets, fashion, and furniture, her work drew inspiration from the International Style, which she translated into her own visual language. Fundamental to her work was her thoughtful en­gagement with her adopted country of Brazil, its cul­ture, society, and politics, and she productively and provocatively voiced her sometimes radical views through designs, exhibitions, and writings. On the oc­casion of Lina Bo Bardi’s one hundredth birthday, this richly illustrated volume presents an overview of her oeuvre and highlights iconic buildings, such as her own home, the so-called Casa de Vidro, the Museo de Arte de São Paulo, and the cultural center SESC Pompéia.
