The Reconstruction of the Brno House of Arts

C114

The German House of Artists, designed by Heinrich Carl Ried, was built on the Brno ring road in 1911. This historicist building suffered serious damage in World War II and had to be reconstructed in 1946; the reconstruction was managed by Bohuslav Fuchs. He decided to cleanse the facade by removing the decorations and replacing the originally round entrance risalit with a cubic shape in order to approximate the building to the esthetics of functionalist architecture. The building was reconstructed according to a design by Petr Hrůša in 2009.
