Idea Code 16621

Hermann Czech gained recognition in Europe in the 1970s with projects based on a strategy of continuation and convention instead of contrast. His work includes homes, hotels, schools, and urban planning, as well as small-scale interventions and exhibition design. In rejecting facile connections between theory and practice, he developed a multidimensional, critical and early postmodern position amid a climate of reformation and avant-gardism. Guest-edited by Christian Kühn of Technische Universität Wien, this issue explores the many facets of Czech’s architectural thought and practice through works ranging from furniture design to urban-scale infrastructure.
