LATER - Modern Architecture in Prague w/David Černý

Guest: David Černý - artist, sculptor, architect, pilot

World-renowned Czech artist David Černý joins us for our one year anniversary episode, talking about how he got into art but mainly about the large-scale architectural projects he has planned here in Prague. Along the way, we talk about other modern buildings in the city, including some that will never get made at all.

*See images & videos of the buildings and projects mentioned here (and more) in the video version on our YouTube channel (recommended!)*
