With award-winning projects like the Dreischeibenhaus in Düsseldorf (1960), the renovation of the main train station inLeipzig (1997), the Arena AufSchalke (2001), and the parking garage clad in bamboo at the Leipzig Zoo (2004), HPP Hentrich-Petschnigg & Partners has influenced architecture in Germany for more than seventy years. Since opening their first office in Düsseldorf in 1935, the partnership has gone through four generations and now comprises about 250 employees at twelve locations throughout the world. Most recently, the company received international recognition for their winning entry in the EXPO Village Shanghai competition as well as for the Europe Tower in Sofia.

This book is a representative survey of HPP buildings of the last decade—from a museum shop measuring fifty square meters and a multi-functional arena, to the headquarters for a company with five thousand employees. A discourse on architectural principles reveals the exciting field in which HPP works: a field situated between emotionality and rationality. (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-2172-1)
