Description - Heinz Tesar Architecture of Layers by Friedrich Achleitner
Heinz Tesar's architecure is associated with holistic ideas, and it is value-conservative in this sense. But at the same time, the architecture relates to its time, is modern, frank and open to consensus in a subjective dialectic between connection and isolation. However, the holistic concept is not concerned with hierarchical orders, but with relative weighting in a denomination process. He works from a fictitious, almost ritualized dialog situation, in which the levels for coming closer to a building idea can be accessed - in terms of drawing and of building itself.
