Carl Fieger. From Bauhaus to Bauakademie
Bauhaus Dessau Foundation (Ed.)
by Dr. Claudia Perren and Wolfgang Thöner
With text by Uta Karin Schmitt
The Bauhaus Edition presents the latest state of research on the architect and designer Carl Fieger (1893–1960). The publication presents the innovative projects that he realized as an independent architect and furniture designer and examines his close connection to the Bauhaus. Designs, drawings, and photographs bear witness to his extensive work at the renowned architecture firms of Peter Behren and Walter Gropius on the most important building projects of the architectural history of the twentieth century. In 1953, the experience in standardized and serial construction that Carl Fieger had gained over decades culminated in the first prefabricated construction in East Germany.
