This bilingual English-German publication focuses on the successful Munich architectural firm of Allmann Sattler Wappner. The firm’s buildings are known for their lightness, clarity, and transparency; they make ingenious use of state-of-the-art materials to open buildings up to natural light and generate a sense of spaciousness. The book presents illustrations—including photographs and plans—of a number of the firm’s projects, showing how they embody the basic principles and ideas that drive the architects.
