Czechia;Prague;Baba.The housing estate “Baba” in Prague was the last building exhibition which the Werkbund set up in Europe in 1932. It symbolises Modern Architecture in the Czech Republic, which has gained growing international recognition since 1989. Three generations of architects were active here; the older generation, still influenced by Cubism, include Janak and Gocar; the middle generation, whose works were purist and functionalist, including Dutch architect Mart Stam, Linhart and Stary; and the younger generation, for example, Ladislav Zak, who with their sweeping forms wished to distance themselves from ‘white functionalism’. This Prague Housing Estate has a special place in architectural history.
