This book finalizes the architectural investigation by Seth de Rooij, into both the Erlwein-Speicher and the way the Germans digest their past. Since it is almost entirely made up of cast concrete, this building was one of the few left standing after the heavy bombardments of the second World War. The author proposes to renovate the warehouse into an attic for Germany that would contain a selection of artworks dealing with their history.
A fetish made of crystals and electricity, animated by our wishes and fears — a perfect embodiment of its own conditions of existence.

In this series of eleven black and white photographs Bruno Munari tries to assume a comfortable position to read his newspaper in a reclining chair. From the early 30s to the 90s, the Italian artist and designer influenced the study of painting, industrial and graphic design, film, poetry and the pedagogical methods behind them. He described himself as an “inventor artist writer designer architect illustrator player-with-children”. The list is not exhaustive.
Bruno Munari is one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. Not because he has imposed a particular style or look, but because he has encouraged people to go beyond formal conventions and stereotypes by showing them how to widen their perceptual awareness.
