Hans Kollhoff, the architect from Berlin, student of O.M. Ungers, creator of works that have met with widespread acclaim, plays an important role in the European cultural debate and the professional world of his city.
Of all the European architects trained under the influence of the masters active in the 1950s and 1960s, the figure of Hans Kollhoff, the architect from Berlin and student of O.M. Ungers, stands out as unique. Creator of works that have met with widespread acclaim on the part of international critics, rewarded with increasingly important commissions, Kollhoff plays an important role in the European cultural debate and the professional world of his city, where he is an exponent of research whose roots can be traced back to the great architects of European and German rationalism. A long essay by Jasper Cepl introduces readers to a book that presents the figure of the architect in the socio-cultural context in which he operates. Cepl’s text is followed by systematic illustration of the many projects and works Kollhoff has completed over the last 25 years.
