Josef Frank - Writings Vol. 1 & 2 Metro Verlag 2013 ISBN 9783993000868 Acqn 22394 Hb 17x25cm 878pp 500ills 50col 100 For more than five decades, Austrian-born architect and designer Josef Frank was one of the leading advocates of the new modern aesthetic, and one of its most strident vocal critics. Through numerous writings, he sought to uncover the meanings and failures of Modernism, exploring its underlying assumptions and sometimes misdirected applications. Above all, he strove to reclaim for modern design some of the freedom it had lost as it became codified in contemporary culture. This immense, two-volume work reprints the entirety of Franks published writings, many appearing in English for the first time alongside the original German texts, plus many photos and drawings.

A lot of use and discard practices can be replaced with the creation of complete life cycles, functions that used to be performed by inorganic constructions (light bulbs and lamp posts) can be replaced with organic ones (light emitting trees). Different materials, different techniques, a different notion of what the power of design can be.
