A scientific symposium on the work of architect Boris Magaš was held at the Karlovac City Hall on October 25th, 2014, almost to date of the first anniversary that one of the most prominent Croatian architects of the 20th century had passed away. The symposium brought together an array of distinguished lecturers who explored the author’s comprehensive theoretical, architectural and pedagogical ouvre. Their proceedings, collected in this book, display a heterogenous compendium of scientific, personal, analytical, objective as well as subjective insights which paint a fragmented portrait of a multifaceted author and the times he created in. Although the compendium is divided into thematic chapters focusing on his theory, architecture, teaching and planning, brought together they prove the necessary intertwining of the theoretical and practical, artistry and engineering, erudition and commitment in a single work of lasting and universal value.
