In the Siegen area east of Cologne, one of the worlds oldest iron-producing regions, the use of wood for building purposes was regulated since wood, in the form of charcoal, was the energy base for irons melting. This self-imposed restriction produced an ideal framework structure eliminating all purely ornamental construction elements. Documented by Bernd and Hilla Becher in their first complete photographic series.
