Erwin Hauer Continua

Erwin Hauer has, over the many years of his career as a working artist, elaborated a visible LOGOS, a logos not of words but of forms. These forms were initially realized to serve a commercial, architectural purpose — they were built as walls or screens — but the logic they embody will delight, or thrill, any observer who pays close attention to the display they present.

One comes to suspect that this logic, and not just the commercial commision that occasioned them, is the driving force behind Hauer’s investigation. The book is designed and produced with an eye towards clarity and precision, making it totally in sympathy with the vision it presents. Anyone who enjoys seeing an idea recognized, seized, and elaborated with intense concentration will enjoy this book. If you want a book that can be used as a tool for deriving patterns and architectural forms, this is a great book to add to the library.
