Mgr. A. Vít Lukas, Czech architect and CNT board member, was interviewed by one of our patrons, professor Zdeněk Lukeš, for TV Architekt. “My father was an architect… and I loved castles and chateaus,” said Vít in response to why he became an architect himself. His final diploma thesis was on the subject of the northern foreground of the Prague Castle and one of the thesis readers was the former Czech president, Václav Havel, who really liked Lukas’ design.
The interview is available online.
Our project Memorial to Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach and the public collection in its favour reached the finals of the Czech countrywide competition Máme vybráno (which can be translated into English as “A successful fund-raiser”), organized by the Institute for Monuments and Culture, o.p.s. It is the public who nominates and votes for the projects.
We would like to thank all supporters who voted for our project online – they helped us to increase our public collection by quite a few thousand crowns, which we won in the competition.
