Bernd & Hilla Becher – Kühltürme
Publisher: Schirmer/Mosel, 2006
Hardcover, 248 pages, German
New in seal
This time, Bernd & Hilla Becher focus on cooling towers, from the early wood-clad towers at coalmines to recent steel or concrete constructions of atomic power stations. Visible from far off even today, the simplicity of their basic forms and their hermeticly sealing external skins create an impressive, monumental effect.
