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. We begin at Spork, an 18th century Baroque palace with two radical reconstructions (Josef Gocar, 1920s and Stanislav Fiala, 2017). We’ll visit the Federal Assembly National Museum, originally a stock exchange (Jaroslav Rössler, 1928) and later home to the communist-era parliament. Along the riverfront, explore galleries and cafes tucked inside old circular ice vaults (Petr Janda, 2019). The tour ends at CAMP’s headquarters housed in a modernist cube within the shadow of a Gothic monastery. Tour hosted by CAMP staff member Adam Gebrian.
