The product of a continuous European architectural and intellectual practice that bridged the Second World War, the work of Rudolf Schwarz (1897-1961) allows a deep-er understanding of post-war German architecture. This book examines nine of his religious and secular buildings sited in the Rhineland, which are presented through new survey drawings and photographs. These are accompa-nied by Schwarz's project descriptions and his lecture 'Architecture of Our Times' from 1958, which contextual-izes his approach. Essays by Wolfgang Pehnt and an interview with Schwarz's wife, the architect Maria Schwarz, provide further insight into this complex oeuvre.
