Czech-American architect Antonín Raymond

4. March 2024, 17:30–19:00

A talk and discussion with Helena Čapková about the works and impact of Antonín Raymond, a Czech-American architect

The prominent Czech-American architect Antonín Raymond realized hundreds of projects in many parts of the world, in the USA, India, the Philippines and Japan, where he lived from 1919 to 1976. His Japanese experience became ingrained in his architecture, particularly in his residential projects in Japan and the USA, most notably his house, a converted farmhouse in New Hope, Pennsylvania.

Helena Čapková has compiled a collection of essays and unique interviews with Raymond's associates that reveal a wealth of new information about the firm's working style and its clients in the postwar era. The book is richly illustrated with material relating to his work and that of his wife Noémi from private archives.
The book Antonín Raymond in Japan 1948-1976/recollections of friends was published in Japanese and English by Karolinum in November 2023.

The lecture and discussion will be held in Czech, free admission.
