    The citizen cooperation Archetyp was founded in 2006 for the documentation of facing, tiles, and facade‘s elements in Prague‘s historic construction. Apart from that we also paid attention to the history and documentation of Prague’s markets. When the last market at Pankrác was closed, we joined the citizen‘s initiative to renew the direct contact between producers and customers. We tried to return the fresh local products to the market. The experience from abroad (New York, London) showed that farmer‘s market can be part of the modern city.

The work of Czech farmers and producers was not recognized, it was undervalued and we felt that it would deserve much more respect. In 2007 The Archetyp Company made a study for the Magistrate of the capital of Prague, whose aim was to find the suitable places for such markets. There were 17 of them and some are used until now. Later in 2010 we succeeded in starting three new markets in Prague. Kubáň (2010 – 2012), Náplavka and Jiřák.

Dancing House

Dancing House in Prauge

The very non-traditional design was controversial at the time because the house stands out among the Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings for which Prague is famous, and in the opinion of some it does not accord well with these architectural styles. The then Czech president, Václav Havel, who lived for decades next to the site, had avidly supported this project, hoping that the building would become a center of cultural activity.
