Furniture

And that means that it must have usefulness and radiate a sense of timelessness.... These are the same aims we seek in our architecture: creating with simple materials a high quality environment and developing a pleasing atmosphere."

The German architectural studio of von Gerkan, Marg and Partner, or gmp, is renowned for large urban designs and projects such as Berlin's Tegal airport, fair grounds in Leipzig, and Stuttgart railway work. So it may come as a surprise that gmp also designs furniture. Yet many of the firm's projects have included interior furniture and design work. This generously illustrated book shows how gmp's aesthetics differ from their peers, and presents objects which are multifunctional, distinctive, deceptively simple, and enduring. As Meinhard von Gaerkan, the founder of the gmp firm has said, "Endurance requires that one should not get weary with the object, but become Fond of it, and be able to identify with it. And that means that it must have usefulness and radiate a sense of timelessness.... These are the same aims we seek in our architecture: creating with simple materials a high quality environment and developing a pleasing atmosphere."

Architects must be proficient in a variety of business practices to contribute to, manage, or launch a successful firm. They are responsible for the same kind of legal, financial, marketing, management, and administrative activities as any other professional. Within these broad categories, however, there are many details, including professional standards and documents, that are unique to the profession of architecture.
