POLONYI, Stefan. Bearing Lines - Bearing Surfaces

Edition Axel Menges 2013

Book ID: 95170

Since the 1950s Stefan Pol—nyi has realized a large number of buildings of all kinds from his Cologne office in Germany, working with famous architects all over the world. Architects who have worked with him see this ambitious claim as something that has enriched their own design process. He cooperated closely with Oswald Mathias Ungers on the Galleria for the Frankfurter Messe, he made the flying roof for Axel SchultesÕ Kunstmuseum Bonn possible, and also the undulating metal ceiling in the auditorium of Rem KoolhaasÕ Nederlands Dans Theater. Pol—nyiÕs bridges, built from the 1990s in the Ruhr District, Germany have become landmarks in the meantime with their red curved tubes as a Living Bridges.
