STUTTGART.- James Frazer Stirling (19261992) is considered one of the most influential and innovative architects of the second half of the twentieth century. With a selection of models and plans as well as theoretical writings and hitherto unpublished archive material, the show offers a new perspective on James Stirling.
The presentation encompasses more than three hundred architectural drawings, large-scale models and photographs shedding light on Stirlings realized and unrealized work. Such famous designs as those for the Neue Staatsgalerie Stuttgart (197784), the Engineering Building of the University of Leicester (195963), the History Faculty in Cambridge (196467), museums in London (Clore Gallery der Tate, 198086) and Harvard (Arthur M. Sackler Museum 197984), the Wissenschaftszentrum in Berlin (19791987), and the Bibliothèque de France competition (1989) will be featured, along with projects completely unknown or only rarely shown to date from a productive period lasting more than forty years.
Conceived as more than a monographic retrospective, the exhibition provides precise insights into the architects design process. With the aid of sketchbooks and audio recordings, Stirlings impact as a teacher at the Yale School of Architecture and his influence on the younger generation of architects is retraced.
In cooperation with the Centre Canadien dArchitecture, Montréal, the holder of the architects extensive estate, and the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, comprehensive tribute is paid to the multifaceted oeuvre of James Stirling in Germany for the first time.
