The exhibition will represent more than 50 best-known realisations and projects which were built in Prague after 1990 with accent on searching historical contexts. Apart from architectural icons like the Dancing House, unique but less promoted buildings or projects will be presented. The aim of the exhibition is to show the dynamic progress of contemporary architecture in Prague in relation to European production considering local specifications.

The exhibition shows also a presentation of architectural projects of coming realisations and a full-coloured publication with editorial about the development of Prague architecture after 1990.
