Metallized composite material (glass, aramid and carbon fibers), no dilatation is needed due to material sufficient elasticity.

^ Yes, from inner facing side, outer side is reflexive with UV filter. There's a second lining inside under the truss construction made of several layers of ETFE.

"místo 160.000 €"

Is that what the winner gets? Is that 160,000 euro? And what does místo mean?

yes, that's prize money. Místo means place (1. místo = 1st place).

Best regards,

Wow, I know it's an international competition, but I never expected that first prize would be anywhere near that!

the head and founder of "future systems", the winning architect team is *** kaplicky, a czech from prague. so i guess he knows the ****...

to get good ************ you can go the easy way and make what the majority is used to or you can make something ***.

nearly every pieve of great ************ was at first strange to the eyes of most people. from michelangelo up to now.

I am speechless... this building is hideous. Prague can do better.

I think that there is something to be said for simplicity. Perhaps it will not bring tourists alone, but Kerez's architecture doesn't succumb to spectacle...

I think that this building will surprise people when it opens. It is refined and minimal and in my mind beautiful.
