In this book, the subject of “silent rooms”—or still lifes—is discussed with reference to historical city photographs from the period around 1900, photographs of turn-of-the-century Berlin taken by Ulrich Wüst, and current project panoramas and collages from the Büro Klaus Theo Brenner—Stadtarchitektur. For the purposes of Silent Rooms, these works are understood in the context of an artistic interpretation of urban space that views them as a theatrical situation in the relationship between urban architecture and city-dwellers. The concept of “silent rooms” refers to the pictorial representation of urban spaces that, beyond any fashionable marketing trends, are the focus of our perception and give us cause to think about the quality of modern urban architecture. Klaus Theo Brenner’s experimentally presented designs document the many different ways in which the scenery of silent rooms has closed the circle linking the historical view of the city with current planning strategies.
