DA 2023 | Santini and Mies

The Architecture Day Festival, which will take place this year between September 29th and October 5th, will once again invite hundreds of events throughout the Czech Republic and Slovakia. For this year’s 13th edition, the organizers chose the motto “Discover the Constructions!” and will focus on exceptional structural solutions not only with regard to the appearance of buildings but also in historical architecture and architecture of the 19th century and its industrial heritage, as well as buildings of the 20th-21st century. The festival regularly commemorates anniversaries of significant personalities in architecture. This year, it will follow in the footsteps of the exceptional representative of Baroque Gothic architecture, Jan Blazej Santini-Aichel, who died 300 years ago this year.
