The influence of the Austrian architect and designer Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956) is extraordinary: for a period of over 60 years he kept up an aesthetic dialog with Modernism, the International Style, and Art Deco. Before being rediscovered in the 1980s by the Post-Modernists, his work was nearly forgotten; now his importance is unquestioned. As a designer he was one of the leading proponents of the Wiener Werkstatte, with its close connection to the Arts and Crafts movement. As an architect, he built the first modern buildings in Europe, such as the Purkersdorf Sanatorium (1904) and the Palais Stoclet (1905-1911). Traversing several styles and schools during his lifetime, his work shows a consistent Formalism. He abandoned Functionalism long before it became obsolete. In a historic sense, Hoffmann was doubly avant-garde: in both the rise and fall of Modernism.

Every book in TASCHEN's "Basic Architecture" series features: approximately 120 images, including photographs, sketches, drawings, and floor plans; introductory essays exploring the architect's life and work, touching on family and background as well as collaborations with other architects; the most important works presented in chronological order, with descriptions of client and/or architect wishes as well as construction problems and resolutions; and, an appendix including a list of complete or selected works, biography, bibliography and a map indicating the locations of the architect's most famous buildings.

HASH(0x95962888) von 5 Sternen Compact and Colorful Josef Hoffmann 13. April 2009
Von William Buckingham - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Tashen has done it again with this succint and generously-illustrated monograph on the Viennese architect Josef Hoffmann, who was also a prolific designer of furntiture and tableware. There are a few annoying gaps -- some major works are mentioned in the text but not illustrated -- but copies of the standard scholarly biography of Hoffmann, now out of print, sell for $300 or more.

This is a lovely book at an excellent price. The Taschen Book series on Jugenstil is wonderful. High editorial standards in selection and presentation. Hoffmann is relatively little-known in English-speaking circles (compared say to Gaudi), except those who know Vienna well.

I am already a fan of his work and have had trouble finding more about him. This filled in some of the gaps and supplemented
a recent trip to Vienna where I saw many of his creations.
