This photographic and documentation project analyzes the work of prominent Slovakian architects of Eastern modernism in a photographic documentary and an oral history . It contains brilliant photos of a past yet unforgettable style period, and background information on the work methods and creative processes in the planning practices of the time. The excellent photos in this book convey the flair of an era in which planning was obviously the product of a collective vision, more so than is the case today. The book addresses architects and all those who are fascinated by the aesthetic of the time.

About the Author:

Herta Hurnaus was born in Linz. She has lived and worked in Vienna since 1986 and is one of Austria's most well-known architecture photographers. She has also worked as a product, protrait and advertising photographer.

The architects Maik Novotny and Benjamin Konrad have worked at various architecture offices in Stuttgart and Vienna and completed projects together since 1999.

Review:

"... Die Gefahr ist groß, dass das Fotobuch "Eastmodern" bald ein Nostalgiebuch sein wird ... eine längst fällige Anerkennung der bis dahin kaum beachteten slowakischen Architekturrevolution ..." Falter Nr. 11, 14.3.2008

"... Nach langer Zeit der minutiösen und intensiven Recherche schnürten die drei Ostmodernisten ihre unbändigbare Euphorie in ein Buch, das dieser Tage im Springer Verlag erschienen ist. Der prächtige Bildband gibt Einblick in die heldenhafte Baumeisterkunst der Slowakei ..." --Der Standard 3.11.2007
