Jabornegg & Pálffy

The monography broaches the issue of the area of tension between contemporary architecture and historic context in the buildings of Jabornegg & Pálffy. Independent of tension format, precision in relation to content, architectonic form and its materiality is the determining reference for essential statements. This provides a basis for the condensation of programme, spatial quality and constructive logic in an architectonic language which is being consistently implemented in completely different tasks. It is irrelevant whether it concerns work in a historical context, the development of new construction forms or questions of perception. The result is always convincing because of the clear language of form together with the highly specific solutions, which are the hallmarks of Jabornegg & Pálffy architecture.
