He was Joe Plecniks most famous student. Plecnik studied under Otto Wagner.Ravnikar worked for Le Corbusier in Paris as of 1939 after completing his studies in 1935. His thorough planning reflects Plecniks poetic architecture, while his formal work was in line with Le Corbusiers vision of urban planning and modern architecture.Ravnikar was his own man artistically, and wasnt only successful as an architect. How work also made him an important personage in the development of the architecture department. He was a critic and essayist for the Slovenian and international media. All of this influenced generations of Slovenian architects and explains why Ravnikar can be felt in almost all major Slovenian buildings and monuments.This monograph can be viewed as the result of an examination of Ravnikars oeuvre. It contains documentation on his buildings and written work, as well as contributions by Friedrich Achleitner, Friedrich Kurrent, Boris Podrecca and many others.
