Alena Šrámková (born June 1929 in Prague) is known as the first lady of czech architecture, or as a pioneer of czech minimalism. She has received awards such as the Medal for Merit from the Czech president, and the State Award for her contribution in architecture. Their has always been controversy surrounding her style of architecture, mostly due to its extreme simplicity. She has been active since the 1950s. Her most recent building, symbolically the home of the faculty of architecture of Prague Technical University, was opened in September 2010. This monumental and in some ways challenging building is the subject of this short film.
