Die Architektur Christoph Macklers zeichnet sich durch die Versoehnung von Tradition und Moderne aus. Er sucht die Baukunst wieder mit ihren vormodernen Wurzeln zu verknupfen. Dabei spielt die Wiedergewinnung von Oberflache und Volumen in der Fassade und das Verstandnis fur die Materialbeschaffenheit eines Baukoerpers eine massgebliche Rolle. Bereits 1979 wurde Christoph Mackler Schinkelpreistrager. 1981 grundete er ein eigenes Buro fur Architektur und Stadtbereichsplanung in Frankfurt am Main.

Mit seinen herausragenden Bauten hat Christoph Mackler architektonische Massstabe gesetzt. Das Buch dokumentiert etwa 22 Bauten von 1990 bis 2008; zu ihnen gehoeren die alte Stadtbibliothek und die Kunsthalle Portikus in Frankfurt am Main, die European Business School in Oestrich-Winkel, das Buro- und Geschaftszentrum Lindencorso in Berlin, das Burohaus Arca in Frankfurt am Main sowie die Hauptverwaltung der KPMG Deutsche Treuhandgesellschaft in Berlin.

Christoph Mackler's architecture is distinguished by its reconciliation of tradition and modernity. Mackler seeks to reconnect architecture with its premodern roots. A pivotal role in his efforts is played by the restoration of surface and volume in the facade and the understanding of the building's material properties. Christoph Mackler won the Schinkelpreis (Schinkel Award) in 1979. In 1981 he established his own firm for architecture and city planning in Frankfurt am Main.

With his outstanding structures, Christoph Mackler has set new architectural standards. This book documents some twenty-two buildings from 1990 to 2008, including the Alte Stadtbibliothek (Old City Library) and Kunsthalle Portikus (Portikus Art Gallery) in Frankfurt am Main, the European Business School in Oestrich-Winkel, the Lindencorso office complex and shopping center in Berlin, the Arca office building in Frankfurt am Main, and the headquarters of KPMG Deutsche Treuhandgesellschaft (KPMG German Trust Corporation) in Berlin.
