Description


Surveying the life's work of a renowned contemporary Czech architect

Ladislav L bus (born 1951) is one of the foremost Czech architects working today, and his work has been gaining great respect and popularity among both his colleagues and the public for several decades. This volume provides a summary of his work to date, including award-winning new works such as his apartment buildings in Prague's Modřany and Sm chov; the remarkable social services building in Česk Krumlov; as well as his exceptional renovations, such as Prague's Langhans Palace, for which he won the Municipal Grand Prix; the Edison transformer stations in Prague; and the Prague Castle Riding School. Rich photographic documentation of his projects is interwoven with writings by his colleagues and friends, who map individual areas of L bus' extensive oeuvre and focus on his pedagogy and the transformation of the Faculty of Architecture of CTU under his leadership as dean.
