Architect / BORIS PODRECCA

5. 4. – 3. 6. 2011
The exhibition is under the auspices of the Director of Austrian Cultural Forum in Prague Florian Haug.
The exhibition is organized by GVUO and the Cabinet of Architecture.

A comprehensive exhibition of architectural works by one of the most famous contemporary architects. Boris Podrecca (1940), who studied architecture in Vienna, is considered one of the pioneers of postmodernism and its later branch - deconstructivism. His work reflects a more tolerant approach to historic buildings and the pursuit of perfection of detail. He is interested in issues of light and the role of pure, bright color in architecture.

Important works include the Neurophysiological Institute at the Stahremberg Palace (1982), the school complex project in Dirmhirngasse (1995) and the monumental Millennium Tower (1999) in Vienna, which, with a height of 202 m, significantly contributes to the creation of a new city silhouette.
