The architect is at all times also an artist. How otherwise would he be able to tame the three-dimensionality of space and subdue the urges of physics and structural mechanics with the creations of his fantasy? This creativity is however mostly restricted purely to its own field. Rob Krier, born in 1938 in Grevenmacher, Luxembourg, is an exception. Since the beginning of his career in construction, he has always seen his love of art as a vocation-one which he nurtures parallel to his work. In his Pictorial Journal 1972-1975, Rob Krier describes how his twin passion for fine art and architecture emerged. The text is restricted to a minimum. The pictures are less colourful, more composed. The "daily scribbles" dominate - mainly sketches and drawings of people and animals, buildings, landscapes, objects and drawings of people and animals, buildings, landscapes, objects and also fantasies. The volume is rounded off with a detailed résumé.
Rob Krier is an architect and influential theorist for architecture and urban planning. He was professor at Vienna Technical University from 1976 to 1998 and, in 1986, held a guest professorship at Yale University in New Haven, Mass.
