Ideals In Concrete: Exploring Central And Eastern EuropeISBN: 9056624032;
Book DescriptionCan there still be talk of a shared culture in the 'Family of Europe,' or are the East and West estranged? This question is the main theme of this beautifully designed book that provides, through images and text, a critical examination ofEastern and Western European cities in light of the 2004 unification. In planning euphoria and the building of a completely new society based on rational and scientific principles, we can glimpse a mirroring of the ideas and views of Communist politicians, architects, and urban planners. The city is used here as a vehicle for the exploration of these key issues. Edited by Mieke Dings. Essays by Jorn Duwel, Wolfgang Kil, Gyorgy Konrad, Bohadan Tscherkes and Anna Tilroe. Paperback, 6.5 x9.5 in./184 pgs / 75 color and 50 b&w.
