Prague’s Kotva department store secures protected status
The Prague department store Kotva has definitively secured protected status. There were no objections to a previous Ministry of Culture decision to that effect and it became legally binding at the end of April. Earlier this year Kotva briefly lost its protected status following a challenge from the building’s current owner.
The Brutalist structure was designed by the architects Věra and Vladimír Machonin and completed in the mid-1970s.
