Leonhardt was involved as a structural engineer on the first post-war high-rise buildings in Germany. He worked with the architects concerned on the cable-net structures for the German Pavilion at the 1967 Montreal World's Fair, and for the roofs of the 1972 Munich Olympics buildings. The interplay between science and practice was crucial to Leonhardt. His publication Spannbeton fur die Praxis (1955) was translated into many languages, and his Vorlesungen uber Massivbau (6 vols., 1973-79) are still seen as standard works.

Book Description Edition Axel Menges Gmbh Jun 2009, 2009. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Leonhardt war nie ein lupenreiner Ingenieur, sondern er war auch immer auf anderen Wegen und stets auf der Suche nach einer neuen Art des Humanismus, in dem Ästhetik und Ethik in eins fallen. Er bezeichnete sich selbst als 'Baumeister', vermied also sowohl den Begriff des Architekten als auch den des Ingenieurs. Die Verpflichtung, zum Wohle der Menschheit zu wirken, verband er mit der Verpflichtung zum Schönen, und dieses Schöne suchte er - hier wieder ganz Ingenieur - durch Regeln zu fassen. Zweckerfüllung, Proportionen, Ordnung, Verfeinerung der Form, Einpassung in die Umwelt, Oberflächentextur, Farben, Charakter, Komplexität und Einbeziehen er Natur sind die Schlagworte Leonhardts. Natürlich war er sich bewußt, daß es durch die Befolgung von Regeln beim Entwerfen noch lange nicht zu schönen Bauwerken kommen müsse. 'Phantasie, Intuition, Formgefühl und Gefühl für Schönheit' müßten hinzukommen. 'Der künstlerisch Begabte' könne zwar intuitiv 'Meisterwerke der Schönheit' hervorbringen, 'die vielen funktionalen Anforderungen an heutige Bauwerke bedingen jedoch, daß zu einem guten Teil strenges, vernunftmäßiges Denken, also die Ratio, beteiligt werden muß'. Leonhardt never was a pure engineer, he always tried several ways, he always was in search of a new kind of humanism, which would unite aesthetics and ethics. He called himself a 'master builder', avoiding the terms architect or engineer. He combined the duty of contributing to mankind's well-being with a commitment to beauty and - as an engineer - for this beauty he tried to find rules. To serve its purpose, proportions, order, refinement of form, fitting the environment, surface texture, colors, character, complexity, and integration with nature are Leonhardt's catchwords. Of course he knew that the application of design rules will not directly lead to beautiful buildings. 'Phantasy, intuition, a feeling for form and beauty' must be added. 'The artistically gifted' might create 'masterworks of beauty' by intuition, but as 'the many functional demands on present-day buildings stipulate the inclusion of strict, intelligent thought, our ratio must be involved'. 215 pp. Englisch, Deutsch.
