116. Praha, XII, Namesti Krale Jiriho


Dear Norman,

The Church of the Sacred Heart in Vinohrady (Prague)
is a project of Joze Plecnik finished in 1932. The clear
glass rose windows on either side of the wide bell tower
contrast with the general heaviness of the building.
Indeed the emphasis of this church is put on the exterior
although the interior is a very unique space which
nevertheless has a recognizable religious aura.

Regards.
R
