Continua resurrects the extraordinary but little-known designs of Austrian-born sculptor Erwin Hauer. His architectural walls and screens - designed for clients in Austria, Canada, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Antilles, Venezuela, and the U.S. - caused a stir when they were built in the 1950s, but have since been lost in time. This book gathers stunning photographs of these works, many of them now destroyed or no longer accessible. Hauer has exhibited widely in the United States and Europe and his sculptures are in many public and corporate collections, including those of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Chicago Art Institute, the Wadsworth Athenaeum, the Benson Sculpture Park in Loveland, CO and the Museum of the National Academy of Design. Architectural installations of his modular, light-diffusing walls exist in eight countries. There is nothing out on Hauer's stunning work.
