Product Description

In Skici – Sketches, fifty Czech architects reveal the most personal aspects of their work – their first ideas in the form of sketches, reproduced with references to the buildings for which they were made. In addition, all the contributing architects have written short texts explaining what the act of sketching means to them.
The diversity of the drawings and the book’s professional graphic design offer a unique documentary witness to the state of Czech architecture while also revealing the human side of the architectural profession. The book is intended not just for architects, but for all “cultured” people.
Inside, you will find the names of not only famous Czech architects such as Mirko Baum, Jan Bočan, Eva Jiřičná, Jan Kaplický, Ladislav Lábus, Josef Pleskot, Martin Rajniš, Vladimír Sitta, Alena Šrámková, David Vávra and Zdeněk Zavřel, but also many others.
