The monograph consists of three parts–it explains the method of research and the concept of the book; it analyses and interprets four buildings as examples: the Boarding School in Modra (1972-1978), the Slovak National Archive (1972-1983), the Supreme Court (1977-1990), and the Slovak National Gallery (1967-1979). Additionally, the book informs about another thirteen key buildings forming the basis of possible interpretations and is followed by the list of works, the bibliography, and the biographical details.
