Book ID: 92890

Internationally lauded Viennese architect Andr‡s P‡lffy has become known for designing new and old buildings so embedded in their historical context that externallyÑwhen viewed from the public spaceÑthey barely stand out at all. Yet inside, they are thoroughly contemporaryÑwith spaces, materials and ideas firmly rooted in todayÕs practices. With his partner Christian Jabornegg, P‡lffyÕs projects include Museum Judenplatz, Hotel Velden Castel and the conversion of a hat factory in historic Vienna for the Generali Foundation into one of EuropeÕs most beautiful spaces for modern art. Loaded with photos, models, blueprints, maps and renderings, this substantial volume showcases P‡lffyÕs work as an architect and a professor at the Vienna University of Technology.
