Our civic association SPOK association for Ostrava culture was founded in 2002. Since 2005 we have been focusing on exhibitions oriented on architecture that followed by a natural reaction on an absence of the regular and professional architecture presentation in this region and even elsewhere, we have also felt the increasing interest of the both professional and general public. At the beginning the exhibitions took place in several locations in Ostrava. In 2009 SPOK and GVUO (Gallery of fine art in Ostrava) founded a Cabinet of Architecture in Ostrava House of art, thanks to that GVOU has supported us with background for the architecture exhibitions. With every exhibition in the Cabinet of architecture there is produced visually reach catalogue that forming book series.
