Antonín Mendl, an Architect in a State of Tension Spanning Antiquity and Modernity
Languages of publication
The present article deals with the relationship between modern architects and classical architecture as far as both academic study and creative inspiration are concerned. This relationship is examined through the specific example of Professor Antonín Mendl. First of all, Mendl’s publication on Resafa is analysed and then a selection of his architectural activity is offered. On the basis of this analysis one can arrive at the conclusion that modern architecture was not in total contradiction to the historic or more precisely the classical model, but that in its fundamental principles modern architecture was based on the classical model.
