The Story of a Visionary: Jan Kaplický

Permanent Exhibition

The malthouse’s top floor has been converted into Valečka Gallery (“Roller” Gallery) named after the original purpose of the space, where germinated green malt used to be “rolled” to get rid of surplus dampness. Today a “study” of distinguished architect Jan Kaplický (1937-2009) is being created here.

For the time being, “The story of a Visionary” exhibition showcases his life and work with a separate room dedicated to the new National Library project. Work on a so called documentation and study centre of architect Jan Kaplický is in progress. It should also include a number of scale models of his implemented and planned only projects, original sketches and blueprints as well as multimedia presentations.
