Présentation du contenu

Series documents the contribution of architect Carl Krayl to the correspondence circle of Die gläserne Kette, with Krayl writing under the pseudonym Anfang.

Born in 1890 in Weinsberg, Germany, Krayl worked on building sites between 1906 to 1909 in preparation for the architectural studies he would undertake from 1910 to 1912 at the Kunstgewerbeschule and the Polytechnikum at Stuttgart. He was employed as a military architect during the First World War and was stationed at Ingolstatd. After the war, Krayl joinded the Arbeitsrat für Kunst lead by Bruno Taut. Between 1919 to 1921 he contributed to "Frühlich", a magazine published by Taut which featured works by some members of Die Gläserne Kette. Krayl joined Bruno Taut in the city architecture department at Magdeburg. From 1923, he worked independently and executed private and public architectural projects. During the Nazi regime he worked as a draftsman for the German State Railway from 1938 to 1946. He died in 1946 in Werder an der Havel, Germany.

    Description:

    Part of a miscellaneous group of visual and textual documents collected by Oswald Mathias Ungers, apparently to represent the work of artists/architects in Die gläserne Kette. Primarily formal studies and other material relating to projects for buildings but also includes biographical material. Includes 17 drawings, 12 photographs, 9 prints, and 4 sheets of text. Most of the drawings are studies of architectonic massing of forms, a few are identified by project name, such as "Das Maler Haus" (the Painter's house) and the Christian Science Cathedral.

    Design of the subject of the photograph, drawing, or reproduction is attributed to Carl Krayl, following Ungers's attributions, unless otherwise stated. Many of the works in this group are inscribed with the name "Krayl" in blue ball-point pen; this might be the hand-writing of Frau L. Krayl who wrote the note on DR1988:0015:026 R/V.

    The photographs DR1988:0015:001 to DR1988:0015:006 are of the same model. Tim Benson has suggested that the model is a competition entry for changes to Alexanderplatz, Berlin (Shubert).

    DR1988:0015:007 to DR1988:0015:009 illustrate different views of the same plaster model.

    DR1988:0015:010 appears to be a photograph of a model for "Das Maler Haus", which is represented by the prints DR1988:0015:024 and DR1988:0015:025.
