Reviews - What do customers think about Prague Architecture & Design (And Guides)?
Covers only the last 12 years of Prague Architecture... May 11, 2006
I was expecting from the sparse description of this book to find an architectural guide to the over 6 centuries of buildings still standing in Prague. In fact, this architecture guide only covers 75 buildings all of very recent design---none older than 1994, and most built since the year 2000.
The print and binding quality of this small, 192-page book is very high. Excellent photographs.
The text is translated into 4 languages; and that means that the amount of architectural description that you will find for any one building may be considerably shorter than what you would otherwise expect in a 192-page book.
Buy this book if you want an introduction to Prague's most recent architecture.
I suggest buying the Blue Book Prague, however, if you want a compehensive guide to the range of Romanesque, Medieval, Rennaissance, Baroque, Art Nouveau and Modernist architecture in this beautiful city.
