Hans Scharoun (1893-1972) was the most significant German architectural Modernist of the 1920s and an important exponent of organic architecture. Scharoun first achieved international recognition with his controversial house for the Stuttgart Weissenhofsiedlung in 1927. His experiments with free planning and dynamic interior space continued throughout the war and are exemplified in the highly acclaimed Philharmonie concert hall in Berlin (1956-63).

Peter Blundell Jones' exhaustive study not only provides a comprehensive overview of Scharoun's life and work, but also explores his theoretical stance in relation to contemporary icons such as Hugo Häring, Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier. Generously illustrated with photographs, plans and drawings, this book presents a timely re-evaluation of Scharoun's unique contribution to architectural theory and design.
