“The guest of the 135th volume of Bourání was the architect and university pedagogue Michal Kuzemenský, who had already joined us in Bourání once, about four years ago.
This time, the topic of our interview was the Yearbook of Czech Architecture from Prostor Publishing House, which had been recently published and Michal is the curator. That is, the author who selected the set of houses published in it.
We talked about the selection process, the processing of data sent by architects, the fact that architects often do not fulfill the assignment set by someone else. But there were also more serious topics, especially the lack of feedback, the small amount of mutual criticism and zero state support for acts such as the Yearbook of Architecture. At the very end of the interview, there were things that no one has opened up about / discussed before.”
