About this Item

144 pages. Currents: BIG to Design Taipei’s Technology, Entertainment & Design Center / Winning M9 Competition Entry by Sauerbruch Hutton / Erick van Egeraat Builds the New Roskilde Incineration Line Feature: Jože Plecnik – Vienna, Prague and Ljubljana For the Japanese, countries that are located in the east of Germany and Austria are categorized as "eastern Europe" and those countries are a deep part of Europe. The architect Jože Plecnik from Slovenia lived only within this area. Vienna, Prague and Ljubljana, where he lived, belonged to the former Austrian-Hungary. This dual monarchy was called Kaiserlich und königlich (k.u.k.) – meaning imperial and royal – held about one third of Europe. Plecnik, who lived within this k.u.k., had the luck of joining in the city planning of his hometown, Ljubljana. Today, the people are still proud of him; his works are all over the city and his face is used for 500 Tolar bill. Internationally, however, he was almost forgotten in the 1960s and 1970s until an exhibition of Plecnik was held at Centre Pompidou in Paris in 1986, which rediscovered the "postmodernism" of Plecnik and placed him in the spotlight again. It was only proper that Plecnik, who studied under Otto Wagner, was influenced by the Vienna Secession and dedicated his life to architecture as a leading architect in the modern architecture movement of Slovenia, is seen differently from other great architects in western Europe and USA. While his architecture evokes a calmness akin to black-and white photos, the details of his architecture inspires us to take photos and brings to mind the idiom, "god is in the details". This special issue traces the three cities where he lived and introduces the whole world of Plecnik with newly taken photos. We would like to thank Dr. Damjan Prelovšek, who is a leading researcher of Plecnik and an inhabitant of the house, Villa Prelovšek (a+u current issue) that Plecnik renovated, for a great amount of help with this issue.
