Product Description

A Professional photographer and architecture enthusiast will take you to 6-15 CZ Cubist Architecture Sites. Some will be famous locations and many will be ones that are off the beaten path that most people don’t visit. I’m a photographer so I know the best viewing angles.

Around 1910, a unique form of cubism appeared in Czech architecture with crystalline and round derivations of geometric shapes. Czech architects were the only ones in the world to also apply cubist forms to architecture. The main Czech leading architects of the cubism era were Josef Gocar, who designed the House of the Black Madonna. Another well-known cubist architect was Josef Chochol that built the some of the “Most Cubist Looking”, Although he later moved on to constructivism and then functionalism, Chochol’s cubist contribution is very important.

Cubist architecture was an avant-garde style that had its moment of splendour before and after the First World War in Bohemia and Austria, although it never became popular in the rest of Europe. This is why the cubist architecture of Prague is quite unique.

As an important parallel, throughout the walk, we visit examples of Prague’s Cubist and Rondocubist architecture, including The House of the Black Madonna (created by Josef Gočár in 1910 as an urbane department store) and the Legion’s Bank. In many respects, Prague’s Cubist architecture (a building style unknown outside of the Czech Republic) surpassed even Art Nouveau as a statement of the city’s newfound sense of modern sophistication and resurgent national identity.

The Tour will be full of enthusiasm and facts as we think outside of the “box”… Cubism to be Exact!
