Dominican nunnery in Prague-Lysolaje
Architecture and Urbanism, MA diploma project

The architecture is rooted in long monastic tradition, besides it shall stay comprehensible and presentive for today's public. The convent's premises do not, thanks to their landscape and urban context, urge for a causeless visit. With various levels of intimacy it, however, welcomes those showing a concern.
