Andreas Tönnesmann, who was professor of art and architecture history at the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (gta) at ETH Zurich until his death in 2014, creates astonishing connections between art, science and society in his far-sighted, interdisciplinary reflections, using a highly sensitive language and not without wit. The expansive spectrum of topics ranges from the architectural and art history of the Renaissance to modern architecture and literature. His essays published in various anthologies and journals have been summarized here in book form for the first time.
