This is an early Behnisch building and pretty sedate compared with what he was designing shortly after, ie angular buildings that layer transparent surfaces with a firm nod to deconstructivism.

Günter Behnisch, born 12th June 1922 in Lockwitz near Dresden, spent his childhood in Dresden and Chemnitz. He was married to Johanna Behnisch and had two daughters and one son.
After studying at the renewed “Stuttgarter Schule”, he started his practice in 1952. With his numerous national and international awards, prizewinning works and many personal honours he is one of the most recognized German architects, worldwide. Günter died in July 2010 in Stuttgart.
Deconstructivism is a movement of postmodern architecture which appeared in the 1980s. It gives the impression of the fragmentation of the constructed building, commonly characterised by an absence of obvious harmony, continuity, or symmetry. Its name is a portmanteau of Constructivism and “Deconstruction”, a form of semiotic analysis developed by the French philosopher Jacques Derrida.
Architects whose work is often described as deconstructivist (though in many cases the architects themselves reject the label) include Zaha Hadid, Peter Eisenman, Frank Gehry, Rem Koolhaas, Daniel Libeskind, Bernard Tschumi, and Coop Himmelb(l)au. The term Deconstructivism in contemporary architecture is opposed to the ordered rationality of Modernism and Postmodernism.
