Ralf Bock also researches and publishes on the origins of the so-called "architecture of modernism". He examines so-called "loners", who can only ever be classified as part of the "functional white modernism" with a few photos. However, these loners have left behind extensive works that need to be rediscovered. They show variety and inspiration on topics of our time. The previous focus was Adolf Loos and his environment. For 7 years now, he has also been working extensively with the work of Hans Scharoun. A comprehensive publication on this subject is in progress.
Thinking and working.
