901. Praha. Dum Ustredni rady odboru



Dear Ladislav,

The General Pension Fund Building in Prague-Zizkov
was 
the largest Functionalist structure in the city. It is considered 
by many to be one of the most important works of Czech 
Functionalism and a hallmark for the Czech architectural modern 
movement. 
The freestanding cross-shaped ground plan and the long strips 
of ribbon windows, are two of the architectural features in this 
outstanding building that clearly follows Le Corbusier's design 
precepts.

Regards.
R
