ARCHITECTURA, Galerie Jaroslava Fragnera
The Jaroslav Fragner Gallery (GJF) is located in the historic centre of Prague, and is one of the few galleries in the Czech Republic devoted solely to the presentation of architecture. With a tradition going back more than fifty years, the GJF regularly exhibits works by Czech, European and global architects, especially those representing progressive middle and new generation studios. The gallery also boasts a long tradition of cooperation with a number of European architectural art galleries, centres and educational institutions. The GJF cooperates closely with artistic and technical universities, organizes international conferences and field trips, publishes expert literature, and organizes and hosts lectures and master classes related to the world of architecture. It also presents Czech works abroad and has organized several major exhibitions of contemporary Czech architectural design. Exhibitions highlight the work of renowned personalities, reflect contemporary issues, and present an overview of the architectural history of the 20th century. In recent years, the gallery has also organised exhibitions and festivals focused on public spaces, sustainable architecture, and the coversion and transformation of industrial heritage sites.
Since 2006, the Jaroslav Fragner Gallery has been operated by the Architectura association.
