Focused on family housing, the highlight of contemporary Czech architecture, the exhibition presents 33 exceptional designs by 33 architectural studios offering an insight into contemporary Czech architecture and urbanism. Showing a wide range of approaches to individual housing needs including large and small houses; new projects and renovations; houses in the countryside, in dense urban centres and in suburbia; made of concrete, wood, bricks or steel; in modern, abstract, or traditional styles distinctive, subtle or introverted, the exhibition demonstrates the continuous increase in the quality of Czech architecture since the fall of Communism in 1989, capturing the developments in architecture within the context of significant political and social change.
