FROM CRAZY CALI
TO COLOGNE

American Pop Architecture at it's best, and yes of course in one book

CALIFORNIA GAGA

JIM HEIMANN


CALIFORNIA
CRAZY

In this vivid new examination of a rogue architectural style, discover the roadside structures of California. Fresh discoveries and several pictorial essays explore how these buildings became synonymous with the West Coast and how the power of personal expression championed any architectural establishment with structures eccentric, innovative, and bizarre.

JIM HEIMANN

Clothes, cars, and California; cultural anthropologist and popular culture historian Jim Heimann has a taste for American myths and dreams. It is no wonder then that the Executive Editor for TASCHEN America is the author of numerous books on architecture, advertising, and graphic design from the US. And it is no surprise that he calls Los Angeles home. His unrivaled private selection of memorabilia - the Jim Heimann Collection - has been featured in museum exhibitions internationally and in numerous publications. Kitsch, retro, classic; he is the king of Americana..

LAUTNER

This introductory book brings together the most important of Lautner’s projects. 
To explore his ingenious use of modern building materials and his bold stylistic repertoire of sweeping rooflines, glass-paneled walls, and steel beams. From commercial buildings to such iconic homes as the Chemosphere, we look at Lautner’s sensitivity to a building’s surroundings and his unique capacity to integrate structures into the Californian landscape.

THE RINGS OF FIRE

25HOURS HOTEL

THE CIRCLE

The 25hours Hotel The Circle is situated just a few minutes’ walk from the city in a spectacular rotunda in the heart of Cologne. In collaboration with 25hours, the Berlin creative team from Studio Aisslinger, headed by interior designer Werner Aisslinger, developed a design concept on the subject of retro-futurism for the listed building in the middle of the Friesenviertel district. The spacious main hall, in which once upon a time policy holders of the Gerling Group paid their insurance contributions, now has a welcoming café and co-working spaces for stress-free working and relaxing. The 207 rooms are urban retreats with contrasting themes -playful retro style meets imaginative future utopias. At the heart of the 25hours Hotel The Circle are the Restaurant NENI and the Monkey Bar on the 8th floor with a unique view of Cologne Cathedral.
