Paul Bonatz 1877–1956

This richly illustrated monograph with an annotated catalog raisonné presents Paul Bonatz, one of the influential architects and architecture teachers of the 20th century, who left behind a diverse oeuvre between modernism and tradition between the German Empire and the early Federal Republic. He also made a name for himself as a designer of technical buildings. Like hardly any other architect, he succeeded in establishing a fruitful dialogue with engineers.

  • Bonatz was a liberal cosmopolitan, his relationship to National Socialism correspondingly reserved. Nevertheless, he sought and received government commissions in the 1930s. Although he held an influential position as a bridge designer in the construction of the autobahns, he criticized Hitler’s gigantism and emigrated to Turkey in 1944, where he subsequently worked as an architect and university lecturer for ten years. His most important building of all, Stuttgart’s main train station (1911-1927), is under acute threat as part of the major “Stuttgart 21” project – the two side wings are being sacrificed to it.
