SEMPER. Noever, Peter

ed. Cl. Vienna, 2007

Book ID: 76342

Annotated book form of this seminal 1867 treatise, whereby Semper expounds his phenomenology of architectural materials juxtaposed with his theoretical positions. It discusses the systematisation of the "ideal museum" and includes valuable ideas and suggestions. It also surveys institutions, objects, and artists that were considered as having model character by Semper and assumably also had an influence on his own work.
