Overshadowed by more famous architects such as Gropius, Taut, and Le Corbusier, Alexander Klein's important role in this search is often neglected. Klein's remarkably innovative and mathematically rigorous design methodology began with the comparison of various types of dwellings, aimed at the determination of objective terms for the valuation of the design quality. Klein studied the problem of dwelling in its complexity, even considering the effects induced by conditions of living to the human psyche. His points of reference were the needs of the family and the individual, rather than impersonal hygienic sanitary parameters. Klein's methodological research may still be considered an important point of reference.". Bookseller Inventory # 34054
