Sort of a Memoir
Martin Holub returns with a second collection of autobiographical stories chronicling his strange and extraordinary experiences growing up in Czechoslovakia, and adapting to his architecture work and life in London, Tehran, and New York. His amusing and insightful anecdotes include how communism affected his boy scout days, a Czech party game that did not sit well with his American friends, a coincidental following of a stranger for years, and accidentally witnessing a dark New York story unfold.
Born in Czechoslovakia in 1938, Martin Holub received two degrees in architecture before taking a position as a designer in an architectural office of a state-owned building contractor in Prague. He also worked in London as a designer for various architectural companies before settling in New York City, where he currently resides. Holub has been in private practice as Principal of Martin Holub Architects since 1971.
