A conference is to be held in Prague next month aimed at re-evaluating Czech architecture from the four decades of Communist rule. Organisers say they want to show that buildings created between 1948 and 1989 were highly diverse in terms of style and that many have been viewed from a political perspective and as a result wrongly stigmatised. The conference will take place on June 13 at the former Federal Assembly building in central Prague, which was completed in 1973.
