Meinhard von Gerkan is one of the most internationally sought-after and successful German contemporary architects. As co-founder of the architectural practice von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp), he has created an impressive world-wide oeuvre over the past 50 years, full of architectural diversity and quality. There is hardly a design job that he has not tackled in this half-century. His work includes both mega-projects and small buildings; he devotes as much time and passion to the design of architectural details as he does to the design of urban spaces or whole cities, such as Lingang near Shanghai in China.

This biography, which was created in close cooperation with Meinhard von Gerkan, includes two volumes in which numerous personal encounters with people and places, as well as examples of specific buildings, showcase the impressive breadth of his work and hence 50 years of architecture for Germany and the world.
