Egon Eiermann / Sep Ruf – German Pavilions, Brussel 1958

The German Pavilions were the actual event at the 1958 Brussels World Fair, because what appeared as an oasis of modesty among the typical exhibition fairground of bizarre sensationalism was precisely what would not have been expected of economic miracle Germany: no showing off or pomposity, just architecture distinguished by its reticence and the refined simplicity of the architectural resources, and by the happy combination of men who created it, all so similar in the nature of their thinking: Egon Eiermann and Sep Ruf as architects, Walter Rossow as landscape and garden planner, and Hans Schwippert responsible for the exhibition programme.
