Princeton Architecture Professor Spyros Papapetros—book launch of the English translation of Siegfried Ebeling's Der Raum als Membran (Space as Membrane)

Read and praised by Mies van der Rohe, denounced by Walter Gropius, and presaging some of the technological innovations introduced across the Atlantic by Buckminster Fuller, Ebeling's 1926 essay has been the subject of a number of recent commentaries, yet the text itself remained unread, due to the scarcity of the original publication. This is the first English translation of Ebeling's treatise, as well as the first contemporary edition of the text in any language. Princeton School of Architecture professor Spyros Papapetros, who has contributed an essay to this translation of Ebeling's text, will make a presentation.
