    Joze Plecnik

    Architect 1872–1957

    François Burkhardt, Claude Eveno, and Boris Podrecca

    The Yugoslavian architect Jozé Plecnik followed what he believed to be a coherent language of architecture in trying to "build a better world through architecture." He cannot be classified in terms of any of the movements - modernism, classicism, secessionism, eclecticism, regionalism, and the like that characterize the turbulent aesthetic tendencies of this century. Instead, as these essays by leading European scholars and the 300 accompanying illustrations of his work show, Plecnik's long career offers an invaluable example of the richness and diversity of early modern architecture.
