The Architecture of Expressionism is the upheaval of architecture in the roaring twenties - with regionally different emphases, schools and protagonists. The series' third volume documents all surviving buildings in Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovak ia. The shared heritage of this important European region is presented in a fascinating rediscovery. The enthusiasm for the expressionist metropolis, an architecture of complexity, verticality and theatricality, in the 1920s captured also East - Central Euro pe. Despite regional differences, the surviving fragments bear witness to a determined will of form and a rich, skilful handling of colour, material and light. Joint together, the buildings tell the story of the expressionist vision of a new modern society . In contemporary photographs and plan drawings Fragment of Metropolis - East documents 170 buildings in Bratislava, Brno, Gdansk, Hradec Kralove, Katowice, Krakow, Legnica, Prague, Szczecin, Usti nad Labem, Warsaw, Wroclaw, as well as many other places. A detailed index and clearly arranged maps complete the reference work.
