The Buildings of Edgar Krug

Paul Scheerbart

The Gray Cloth (novel)

1914

Proposed marvels of glass architecture which preempt today's structures by more than a century.

Perhaps the essential satire underlying Sheerbart's idea of these buildings is in the architect's obsession with their appearance over any other attribute. Happy to tyrannize those forced to live in his structures and uninterested in their functional lives, Krug is obsessed with light and colour as ends in themselves. His buildings are immensely sensuous and spectacular but in the end are more sculpture than architecture.
