Day 6 – Gottfried Böhm


For day six of architecture week 2012 I take a look at the work of architect Gottfried Böhm. A German architect born in 1920 most often described as an expressionist. I love the other-worldly quality of his work, it’s very evocative, and a little pointy.

Here’s some images of a few of his projects:

pilgrimage church, neviges 1963-1972

bensberg town hall, 1962-1967

kirche christi auferstehung, 1963-1970
