Hans Scharoun. Architecture on Paper

Book Presentation

Hans Scharoun, whose estate is kept in the Akademie’s Architectural Archives, was one of the most important architects in Germany. His utopian drawings are being honoured for the first time in this comprehensive exhibition. The architect, who was endowed with great drawing skills, let his imagination run wild as an inventor of space on paper. Scharoun‘s visionary designs are masterpieces of modernism that are still highly topical today.
Selected drawings by Scharoun will be presented at the event.
