Description
With his colorful residential buildings, Bruno Taut was a decisive influence on Berlin settlement construction in the modern age. The seizure of power by the National Socialists forced the archi - tect to relocate from Germany via Japan to Turkey in 1936. Not least thanks to the country_s push to modernize and adapt to international modernity under the Atatürk government, Taut was able to continue his architectural work in exile until his death two years later. In addition to the construction of parts of the University of Ankara, several school buildings and his own residence, Bruno Taut was also responsible for the design of the catafalque for the state_s founder. The authors present all buildings planned by the German artist of construction. This volume also il - luminates the extraordinary life of Taut in exile and his unmistakable signature woven into the architectural image of Turkey.
