Noah Charney: Eternal Architect

The new book about the life and work of Jože Plečnik brings a fresh view on the Slovenian architect through the eyes of Noah Charney, PhD. The author connects and presents Plečnik’s works through the architect’s life story, especially his periods in Vienna, Prague and Ljubljana.

Reading the book through the lenses of history, aesthetics and art history reveals the master’s spiritual dimensions, his housing and design preferences as well as his attitude to his own Slovenian nation, which Plečnik wanted to elevate and help it create its own national architectural language. In his attempts to do so, Plečnik faced the Classical and the Modern, Central European and Mediterranean, which he then combined in an organic post-modern stimmung
