Leslie Topp investigates how "truth" in Viennese architecture at the turn of the twentieth century could be interpreted in a variety of ways, including "truth" to purpose, symbolist or ideal "truth", and ethical notions of authenticity. Drawing on newly uncovered archival materials, Topp offers a new interpretation of familiar buildings, demonstrating how they encompass utopianism, hyper-rationality, and subjectivism. She also explores the relationship between Viennese modern architecture and contemporary painting, psychiatry, fashion, labor issues, and anti-Semitic politics.

Book Description:

Leslie Topp investigates how "truth" in Viennese architecture at the turn of the 20th century could be interpreted in a variety of ways, including truth to purpose, symbolist or ideal truth, and ethical notions of authenticity. Drawing on newly uncovered archival materials, Topp offers a new interpretation of familiar buildings that are shown to encompass utopianism, hyper-rationality, and subjectivism. She also explores the connections between Viennese modern architecture and contemporary painting, psychiatry, fashion, labor issues, and anti-Semitic politics.

Review:

"Leslie Topp's book is important for offering new perspectives on well-known buildings, especially for systematically trying to answer the question of who the prople that commissioned them were. As a consistent and comprehensive narrative about four iconic modernist monuments, based at the same time on solid research and creative interpretation, it will also be an excellent teaching tool."
-Vladimi Kulic, Austrian Studies

"Her work is both original and thorough, thus it is one of the best treatments of a subject that has received a great deal of attention."
-Jindrich Vybiral, Austrian History Yearbook

"Topp gets it right, and her meticulous analyses confirm what has been a growing understanding in recent years about the complexity and multifarious nature of early Modernism...Her work navigates deftly through the intricate and meandering course of the idea, and it provides a useful contribution to the literature on the early Modernism in Vienna."
-Christopher Long, University of Texas at Austin, Studies in the Decorative Arts

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This 2004 book examines one of the key notions of modernist architecture as it was formulated in Vienna at the turn of the twentieth century. Providing a close analysis of four major buildings - Olbrich s Secession Building, Hoffmann s Purkersdorf Sanatorium, Wagner s Postal Savings Bank, and Loos s Michaelerplatz building - Leslie Topp investigates how truth could be interpreted in a variety of ways, including truth to purpose, symbolist or ideal truth, and ethical notions of authenticity. Drawing on newly uncovered archival materials, Topp offers an interpretation of familiar buildings that are shown to encompass utopianism, hyper-rationality, and subjectivism. She also explores the connections between Viennese modern architecture and contemporary painting, psychiatry, fashion, labor issues, and anti-Semitic politics. Seller Inventory # APC9780521822756
