Paul Janák (1882-1956) is one of the leading Czech architects with its monumental buildings in the style of the Czech Architectural Cubism, national style (Czech Rondo cubism) and Functionalism. His work is also characterized by his important contributions to restorations of monuments (Prague Castle), urban planning (Werkbundsiedlung Baba), design (founding member of Artěl and his work for the Czech Werkbund) and as a theorist (particularly for the theory of Czech Architectural Cubism).
This book with nearly 600 color illustrations is the first comprehensive monograph devoted to the various aspects of life and work of Pavel Janák. The author Norbert Kiesling traces the development of his work and portrays Pavel Janák and his life by including previously unpublished private writings carefully.
