The popular Women in Focus series is set to continue after the summer with a talk by the world-renowned, Czech-born architect Eva Jiřičná. During the talk Ms Jiřičná, who is best known for her shop interiors and residential projects, will discuss her signature glass staircases and the limits of structural engineering as well as her most recent projects and the need for sustainable architecture.
Furthermore, the talk will touch on the topics such as the importance of public spaces, green living and regeneration of city suburbs. Using her 50+ years experience in the field, Ms Jiřičná will compare how various challenges are approached in different parts of the world and she will give a brief overview of the changing tasks architects have faced in the last 40-50 years.
The final part of the evening will allow enough time for questions from the audience to open a lively discussion on architecture, urbanism, and beyond.
