“Modern architecture of Brno”- lecture of Vladimír Šlapeta

Czech Centre Brussels and the Representation of the South Moravian Region invite you to a lecture on “Modern architecture of Brno” of one of the leading Czech architects, Vladimír Šlapeta. The lecture will be held on 23rd November 2016 at the Faculty of Architecture of the Catholic University of Leuven in Brussels.


Vladimír Šlapeta

Vladimír Šlapeta is an architect by profession and in his heart. His work focuses on detailed research on the history of modern architecture, especially architectural Modernism and Functionalism of the 1920s and 1930s in Czechoslovakia. At the beginning of his career, Vladimír Šlapeta was first involved in architectural design. However, his previous studies and subsequent employment in a museum led him to be engaged in research on the history of modern architecture. He has published several important books on Modernist architecture of the 20th century in Czechoslovakia and Central Europe, which have brought high-profile international awards and recognition. In addition to teaching, he also served for a long time as the Dean of the Faculty of Architecture at the Czech technical university in Prague, and later at the Brno University of Technology. Vladimír Šlapeta

In Brussels, Vladimír Šlapeta will represent extraordinary architecture of 20th century which is becoming more and more a unique attraction of architecture tourism in Brno. Here visitors could admire the Functionalism in numerous newly reconstructed villas, for example in Villa Tugendhat or Löw-Beer whose owners were parents of Greta Tugendhat. Villa Stasni and Villa Jurkovič are counted among the monuments of architectonic heritage, which are marked by exceptional genius loci. In addition, other places like cafes or hotels from 20th century with unique interiors are reconstructed and open to public.
