Full Description

Small folio. 505 + (7)pp, 63 photo plates. Publisher’s cloth.

First edition of what has become a classic in the literature of urban architecture and planning. Hegemann covers the architectural history of Berlin from the beginning of the seventeenth century onwards, but what is especially valuable is his vivid and critical account of the building and planning policies followed by the city’s administrators in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
