The book is entirely devoted to the work of Josef Plecnik, active in Vienna, Prague and Ljubljana, he is one of the greatest Mittel-European architects.

Having trained during the years of the Vienna Secession, Josef Plecnik was a pupil of Otto Wagner and contemporary of Joseph Olbrich and Josef Hoffmann.
This monograph documents the Slovenian architect’s highly original work that is rigorous and consistent, the expression of an unparalleled mastery of construction, sustained by an expert knowledge of materials, aware of traditional values and artisanal practice, and free in its choice of references.
The author, Damjan Prelovcek, argues in his text how Plecnik’s work succeeds in combining in original buildings an unique sensitivity towards the relation between architecture and the city with references to history and the past.
