"""Figures"" is the first volume of a comprehensive series on the artistic work of the well-known international architect and town planner Rob Krier. Although best known for his city planning projects all over Europe, especially the new town of Brandevoort near Helmond, and a new village near 's Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands, for his teaching as a Professor at the Technical University of Vienna and as a visiting professor at Yale, Rob Krier's first love has always been art and sculpture, where he can create freely without the constraints of clients, budgets and building regulations. As Ann Holyoke Lehmann points out in her foreword, ""Rob Krier treats Art as the force of Nature that it is and, often with something approaching dismay, recognizes that he himself is dominated by that force .he finds that he has no choice but to give shape to human figures as drawings and sculpture."" Since ancient times, the abstract geometrical background of buildings and urban architecture has been enriched by the contrast with figural and pictorial representations and sculpture but since the visual arts rejected this form of expression and began to compete with the abstraction of buildings this contrapuntal dimension has been lost. Krier's sculpture for public spaces includes figures for the main buildings of his Ritterstrasse and Rauchstrasse developments in Berlin, for the Mol de la Fusta in Barcelona, and the figure for a Bridge in Pforzheim. He has spoken of his figures as the ""dreams with which I adorn my evenings."" The drawings reproduced here were made in the postcard size notebooks he always carries with him. The figures themselves are also small, formed in clay on a modelling block, then glazed and fired in his kiln, the work of an artist, independent of any constraints. About the Author: Rob Krier was born in Luxembourg, studied architecture in Munich but moved to Vienna, where he was a Professor at the Institute of Architectural Design at the Technical University from 1976-1998 and where he founded his own architectural practice in 1976. Since 1993 his practice has been based in Berlin but he spends a large part of the year in Italy where he works on his sculpture and drawings."
