The book by Gianluigi Mondaini and Matteo Zambelli analyzes the architecture of Behnisch Architekten through five paradigms to explain the approach to the project and the spatial research.
“The book contextualizes Behnisch Architekten’s position in the contemporary architecture’s scenario, with reference to the great realism and the organic functionalism. Great realism refers to the approach that starts from a data landscape (datascape) – meaning functions, needs, and client’s requests, context, climatic conditions, way of usage of the building, etc. – where Behnisch Architekten starts from, reaching a solution which is strictly (and brightly) functional, however also represents a captivating and correct invention, with a keen spectacular, and not tiresome and distasteful, as some of other current situations”.
