This pocket-sized yet comprehensive guidebook to modern architecture in Prague shows its development from the Art Nouveau and beginnings of the Modern Style at the turn of the 20th century, the unique Cubist buildings from the years before World War I, the "National Style" of the newly established Czechoslovak Republic, the functionalist avant-garde of the inter-war period, the most remarkable examples of post-World War II buildings, and the revival of architectural production after 1989. 200 pages cover 220 buildings spanning the period 1900 to 1997. Each entry contains a descriptive text, period photographs, and selected entries are provided with plans. An indispensable companion for discovering the vast architectural heritage of the Czech capital.

Page 5 - Architectural sounds in deep perspective warping within spirals, forward dart upon the frame of time ellipses, fold in upon densities silently awakening.
Page 5 - Architecture are the three-dimensional memory photographs of past and present time. Cities are the accumulation of thoughts, and the quality of these thoughts upon specific places.
