Boris Podrecca / Architekt

Boris Podrecca is one of Austria’s leading architects, and one of the foremost figures in contemporary European architecture. His work has been shaped by numerous influences and tendencies which have come together in Central Europe – primarily in the former territory of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy – including inspiration from figures such as Plečnik, Loos and Fuchs. Influenced by these architects, Podrecca has gradually developed his own distinctive way of continuing in the tradition of classic European modernism. He has not taken the post-modern route of combining historical forms. The loose, unbound nature of his work – an essential feature of the creative Viennese scene – has its origins in Podrecca’s own personality, his freedom and ability to adopt and adapt stimuli from the European cultural environment.
