Kaplicky's controversial Prague Library may get built

Before Jan Kaplicky’s recent death, the controversial Prague National Library project by Future Systems was supposed to be shelved forever. However, there are rumors now saying it may get built, thanks to a popular Facebook group supporting the project.

Maybe the Prague National Library will be finished by Amanda Lavete, who recently announced the formation of her new office, Amanda Lavete Architects. This new practice follows the end of Levete’s 20 year partnership with Jan Kaplicky at the influential Future Systems.

You can see the Facebook group here (it’s in czech though).
