Eva Jiricna on the Future of Czech Historic Buildings

Eva Jiricna, an internationally acclaimed architect for her work on prestigious retail, commercial and civic projects in the UK and the Czech Republic, will discuss her views on the role of historic buildings in modern society and how best to preserve her homeland’s treasures for future generations.


The Czech Republic has one of the richest concentrations of great houses and castles in Europe – some 12,600 survive including twelve sites on the UNESCO list. Since the Velvet Revolution in 1989 enormous efforts have been made to restore the heritage that has suffered from 40 years of misuse and neglect. Buildings that in other countries would be regarded as beyond hope are being brought back to life.
