" Berlin̕s most beautiful cultural construction : the restoration of the Staatsoper. "

" The photographer Alexander Schippel (*1979, Berlin) has taken on one of Berlin's historic architectural monuments: starting in 2011, he spent seven years following the restoration of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, which was carried out by the architect HG Merz, who was commissioned with the job in fall 2010.

Schippel's photographs document the transformation of G. W. von Knobelsdorff's rococo building—which had already been renovated once during the era of the German Democratic Republic—into a superlative opera house. Attention has been drawn to spectacular interventions in the original building's structure and minutiae: artfully curving staircases, the columns in the Apollosaal wrapped in plastic sheeting, or precisely detailed panoramas of the ceilings. This monograph, with a foreword by Horst Bredekamp, presents the Berlin opera house in meticulous detail and with a sense of immediacy that no visit to the opera can provide.  "

Plus de 90 photographies en couleurs d'Alexander SCHIPPEL, à pleine page, à fond perdu et in-texte, qui documentent la restauration du Staatsoper Unter den Linden (Opéra d'État Unter den Linden) menée par l'architecte Hans Günter Merz de 2010 à 2015.
Le Staatsoper Unter den Linden a été voulu par Frédéric II de Prusse et dessiné par Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff (inauguration en 1742).
Textes de Horst BREDEKAMP (19 figures), H. G. MERZ et Matthias SCHULZ.
