A complete survey of the conceptual and material evolution of a Czech architectural firm

Martin Rajnis Architecture Guild ranks among the most unique of Czech architectural studios. The firm was founded by Czech architect and author Martin Rajnis (born 1944), whose path led from the renowned SIAL studio in Liberec through independent international commissions to a four-year sailing journey around the world, on which he reached the revelation that he "doesn't want to keep pouring concrete"--whereupon he turned toward the creation of ingenious wooden buildings and constructions, among them the unique post office on Mount Snězka; the Gulliver airship at the Prague art center DOX; and numerous towers and domestic residencies that accent the need for beauty, playfulness, and life in harmony with nature. Alongside photographic documentation, this 528-page volume also presents selected unbuilt projects and the sources of their inspiration.
