Summary "What does a truly contemporary building look like? Uwe Kiessler demands architectural solutions that fit buildings into natural cycles. With this in mind, he champions an approach to modern technologies and materials that makes sparing and gentle use of natural resources. His architecture stands for solutions that accomplish their objectives with suitable means and at the lowest possible cost, for structures that react dynamically to a range of different demands, and for technical systems that make use of nature instead of using it up." "Uwe Kiessler and his partners have set new standards with their firm s outstanding structures the firm has been in existence for more than forty years. Their buildings include the Bavarian State Chancellery; the ERCO Light Factory in Lüdenscheid; the Gruner & Jahr Press Building in Hamburg; the Düsseldorf Kunstsammlung im Ständehaus; the science park in Gelsenkirchen, a milestone of ecological building technology; and the Telekom Center in Munich, which was completed in 2005."--Publisher website.
