During the festival weekend of Open House Praha, several functionalist gems will open to the public, reminding us of significant Czechoslovak architects. The first is the former restaurant of the Štvanice Winter Stadium by Josef Fuchs (130th birth anniversary). The stadium served as the venue for several ice hockey world championships in the past, and after the year 1959, it was used for public skating. However, its condition gradually deteriorated, and in 2011, despite its heritage protection, it was demolished. Only the café was spared, and today it houses the club Fuchs2.

ENTRY: free

“In relation to this year's celebrated architects, we, in collaboration with architect Zdeněk Lukeš, have prepared a lecture on the work of Oldřich Tyl and Josef Fuchs as part of the accompanying program on Tuesday, May 14 at 6 p.m. The lecture will take place at the unconventional space of the club Fuchs2. The former restaurant near the bustling highway is the last remnant of the once famous and now demolished Štvanice Winter Stadium, where sports history was made. The lecture will not only delve into the history of the place but will also provide visitors with an opportunity to see how the space has come alive in recent years thanks to alternative culture and art installations,” says Andrea Šenkyříková, creative director of the festival Open House Praha.
