“Everything develops from the ground plan. Without a ground plan, there is disarray, arbitrariness. The ground plan affects the senses.”
- Le Corbusier


Corner ground plans reveal the inseparable relationship between urban planning and architecture. They resulted from the architectural problem of having to create useful rooms in the corners of urban buildings and, over time, architects have developed diverse designs that lend these spaces an additional quality.
Corner houses with good corner ground plans are an important aspect of successful urban planning. However, 20th century functionalism brought with it new requirements regarding hygiene and transportation planning, which took their toll on the corner houses. In order to be able to again create clearly defined and beautiful urban spaces, we must regain the ability to create buildings with good corner ground plans.

This book presents an extensive collection of solutions for this fundamental issue of urban planning. The various ground plans for apartments from the past two centuries highlight underlying principles for dealing with urban corner spaces, serving both as inspiration and as a benchmark for the future.

Das Entwerfen von Wohnhäusern in einem bestehenden städtischen Kontext erfordert das Studium bereits vorhandener städtischer Wohnungsgrundrisse. Besonders stark ist der Einfluss des städtischen Raumes auf das einzelne Haus beim Eckhaus, das, oftmals über einen Erker, den Stadtraum wirkungsvoll mit dem Wohnraum verbindet. Das rechtwinklige, das spitzwinklige und das stumpfwinklige Eckhaus werden hier näher beleuchtet und sollen damit aus der Vergessenheit geholt werden, denn im Zuge der Moderne ging diese Art des Bauens fast gänzlich verloren.

Die Publikation zeigt den Eckgrundriss in zahlreichen Beispielen – mit Fotografien und Grundrissen veranschaulicht. Die durchaus subjektive, niemals vollständige Auswahl gelungener Ecklösungen reicht von 1805 bis 2005 aus zahlreichen deutschen (Berlin, Dresden, Köln, München) und europäischen Städten wie Prag, Wien, Mailand, Basel, Strasbourg, Paris, Luxemburg, Amsterdam, Kopenhagen, von Giuseppe Terragni, Otto Wagner, Hans Poelzig, Bruno Taut, O. R. Salvisberg, Gio Ponti, Asnago e Vender, Rob Krier, Meili Peter und weiteren.
