In Light of Hilberseimer. The Genesis and Legacy of the New City
“With clear and elegant writing, Plácido González Martínez unravels an important paradox in this book: the unexpected emotional intensity hidden within this figure who was commonly described as cold, dull and stubborn; his tragic love story with Otti Berger, a student he met in Bauhaus de Dessau; his close relationship with students at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago (IIT), who suffered from the daunting arrogance of a certain Mies van der Rohe… In short, this book reveals the profound human dimension behind the leader of urban and architectural rationalism in the 20th century”.
—Carlos García Vázquez.
