Hans Koll­hoff's work is con­sid­ered among the most am­bi­tious and chal­leng­ing to be found in the con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­ture of the Ger­man-​speak­ing coun­tries. Its strength is de­rived from a de­lib­er­ate ref­er­ence to the bench­mark of tra­di­tion­al ar­chi­tec­ture and the high­est stan­dards of crafts­man­ship, of­ten con­sid­ered some­what an­ti­quat­ed. This mono­graph ex­am­ines 11 re­cent ex­em­plary pro­jects and anal­y­ses their ba­sic un­der­ly­ing fea­tures in an ex­ten­sive es­say. Se­lect­ed texts by Hans Koll­hoff him­self shed light on his ap­proach to ar­chi­tec­ture and the back­ground of his works.
