International Conference on Architecture + Urbanism - Prague 20/20
Prague 20/20 is the first joint conference between AIA Europe and AIA International Region, bringing together a diverse AIA membership from around the globe to gain a wealth of knowledge about architecture and urbanism through the particulars of this European city.
The conference will begin with an introduction to the history of Prague from the Holy Roman Emperor Karl IV to the Second World War, providing the necessary context for understanding the city's latest developments. The overview will be presented in lecture format and walking tours of Old Prague – the Charles Bridge, Wallenstein Palace, churches, synagogues and the Municipal House.
The conference will then focus on the newest urban developments that have evolved around the Soviet-built metro lines, the original connections between Prague city center and the socialist housing blocks. Today, many new projects have formed around these important transit hubs.
