Recorded 18.9.2018 at Tschechisches Zentrum Berlin
The early 20th century and in particular the interwar years saw the rise of a range of new urbanist and architectural visions in Czechoslovakia. After years of Viennese influence, suddenly the opportunity was at hand to turn Prague into a modern big city and fulfill the Czech nation’s aspirations for independence. Many competitions were organised for designs of buildings or even entire areas and these designs envisioned significant changes to the look of the city. The great majority of projects proposed were never ultimately brought to life. Klára Brůhová presented her book, which focuses on these unrealised projects.
archint 1918_2018 is a series of events on the turn in architecture after 1918, after the establishment of the First Czechoslovak Republic. Young theoreticians of architecture will present their new projects on heritage and the courageous modern visions that have strongly shaped the Czech architectural landscape.
