Pragovka Studios – Let’s Go Inside

Kolbenova Street today is a synonym of industrial buildings stretching along the both sides of the street. In the north, there is the original area of Kolbenka factory with many monuments; on the south there is a complex of buildings connecting to former warehouse of the Ministry of Posts and Telegraphs built in 1931-1932, also called “E-Hall” because of its ground plan. E-Hall was built by K. Skorkovský and Pražská stavební a betonářská společnost according to Josef Kalous’ project who used reinforced concrete skeleton structure of mushroom ceilings in the whole object including foundations. Due to destruction of other buildings, manufacture of legendary car Praga V3S was moved here after the war and the prototype of this car was born here in 1952. Now two-storey building (the addition was built probably after WW II) serves as art studios since 2012. There are over 30 studios for more than 70 painters, sculptors, and conceptual artists working under the title Pragovka.

Meeting point: Sun, October 4, 3 pm – 6 pm, Kolbenova 616/34, Prague 9
