Prague: Old Meets New
In Prague, Renaissance and Baroque landmarks effortlessly shake hands with Modernist, Brutalist, and contemporary architecture. Join the Center for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning (CAMP) architecture critic Adam Gebrian for this virtual exploration into Prague’s surprising layers. It begins at Spork, an 18th-century Baroque palace with two radical reconstructions (Josef Gočár, the 1920s, and Stanislav Fiala, 2017). Then follows the Federal Assembly National Museum, originally a stock exchange (Jaroslav Rössler, 1928) and later home to the communist-era parliament. Then there will be shown galleries and cafes tucked inside old circular ice vaults (Petr Janda, 2019) along the riverfront. The tour ends at CAMP’s headquarters housed in a modernist cube within the shadow of a Gothic monastery.
