The monograph pays tribute to the work of an unusual architect and also sheds light on the crisis of the middle classes at the end of the 19th century and the period around 1900, which marked the emergence of modern art and architecture, Wilhelm von Tettau and other reform architects explored the opportunities of ‘modern’ architecture between forgetting and fixing history, arbitrar and uniformity, the cult of the artist and the appropriation of art.
