Overview

The extraordinary architectural heritage of Prague has meant that the city is now regarded as one of the artistic and cultural capitals of the world. The turbulent history of the city is reflected in the range and diversity of buildings discussed in this book: from its baroque churches and palaces to the state offices and housing projects of the post-1945 communist era. The guide covers all aspects of Prague's development since its early years, through its periods of both power and decline from the 15th to the 20th century. Particular attention is paid to the architecture of the last 100 years. Since the democratic revolution of 1989, the city has once again become a place of pilgrimage for those interested in architecture and design. This book covers some of the most recent architectural projects to be planned in the city.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Though covering all aspects of Prague's development since its early years, through its periods of both power and decline from the 15th to the 20th century, Pavitt (U. of Brighton) pays particular attention to the architecture of the past 100 years. The guide should be especially useful now that, after the transformations since 1989, the city has once more become a place of pilgrimage for travellers interested in architecture and design. The remarkable black-and-white photographs are her own. Distributed in the US by Palgrave. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
