book release: "Wie Architekten wohnen" by Gennaro PostiglionHave you ever asked yourself, how does the architect of a great building live?
Extensive glasswork, bright, well-lit rooms and open interior spaces. A blue main floor and a yellow upper floor, combined with a red stairway that is reminiscent of the De Stijl movement, invites visitors to come in. This describes the residence of Architect Reinhold Andris.
How he and architects like Aldo van Eyck, Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier, Henry van der Velde, John Young et al. live, you can find out in Gennaro Postigion’s new book: “Wie Architekten wohnen”.
The book is a compilation of the world’s most influential architect’s homes on 480 pages. It shows the houses surroundings, floor-plans, as well as views of their interiors, from the kitchen to the bedroom. The result: an architects home is more than an expression of their personality: it's an autobiography, built in brick and mortar.
“Wie Architekten wohnen”, by Gennaro Postiglion, is available now and is published by Taschen Verlag 2013 in Cologne; ISBN 978-3-8365-4485-6, € 29.99.
In our latest issue of Sportswear International Magazine #251 you'll find a selection of new opened stores that are designed and created by well-known architects. Read it here online.
