WITH HIS CONSISTENT PRODUCTION OF HIGH-QUALITY WORK, LUDĚK RÝZNER HAS BUILT A REPUTATION AS ONE OF THE LEADING CONTEMPORARY CZECH ARCHITECTS. HIS OK PLAN ARCHITECTS STUDIO, WHICH HAS BEEN BASED IN HUMPOLEC SINCE 1999, HAS PUT THE TOWN ON THE COUNTRY’S  ARCHITECTURAL MAP.

HIS DESIGN WORK IN SEEMINGLY DISPARATE AREAS, FAMILY HOUSES AND INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS, IS ESPECIALLY INSPIRING. RÝZNER’S ELEGANT FAMILY HOUSES EMBODY THE FINEST LEGACY OF FUNCTIONALISM, AND YET THE DESIGNS AND PRACTICAL LAYOUTS ARE ALWAYS FULLY BASED ON THE CHARACTER OF THE SITE AND THE SHAPE OF THE PLOT. THE ARCHITECT’S DESIGNS SEEM LIGHT AND NATURAL..

HIS INDUSTRIAL HALLS COMBINED WITH ADMINISTRATIVE FACILITIES UTILISE LIGHTENED FORMS THAT ARE SO AESTHETICALLY PLEASING THAT ONE IS RELUCTANT TO REFER TO THEM AS ‘MANUFACTURING’ BUILDINGS. 

WHILE THE NAME OK PLAN IS COMPREHENSIBLE IN ALL LANGUAGES, TO IMPLY THAT RÝZNER’S BUILDINGS ARE MERELY ‘OK’ IS WOEFULLY INADEQUATE FOR THIS LEVEL OF ARCHITECTURE.
