Czech Architectural Cubism, a unique style reflected in a number of structures built in Prague and elsewhere between 1911-1914 and then briefly after the World War by Czech artists, designers and architects such as Pavel Janak, Josef Gocar, Josef Chochol or Vlastislav Hofman, who took their inspiration from the Cubism movement in Paris and brought it to Prague. Today Architectual Cubism is highly acclaimed all over the world and the most well known buildings in this style continue to generate extraordinary level of interest. This exhibition was created in cooperation with the Jaroslav Fragner Gallery in Prague by Zdenek Lukes and the photographer Ester Havlova, whose black and white photographs superbly illustrate this architectural style.

Professor Ing Arch Zdenek Lukes, a renowned architectural   historian, architect, author and expert on modern architecture – one of the key personalities of revitalization of Prague Castle after the Velvet revolution, expert on Cubism, author of over 50 books, frequent newspaper contributor and popular radio and TV personality.
