On March 24, 2020, we commemorate 125 years since the birth of Bohuslav Fuchs, one of the most important creators of Czech modern architecture, a student and collaborator of Jan Kotěra. Fuchs' works are located in Brno, where his life and work remained connected throughout his life, where he became the chief urban architect at the age of thirty for four years. His works have also been realized in Tišnov, Znojmo, Skryje, Kuřim, Kralice nad Oslavou, Ostopovice, Luhačovice and other cities in Moravia, Bohemia and Slovakia.

Fuchs was also a member of the Group of Fine Artists in Brno and the Block of Fine Artists of the Moravia-Silesia. In 1932 he founded the family company AKA, a company for the production of home accessories and art objects. He also worked as a professor.

The exhibition, prepared by FOIBOS BOOKS and Kotěra Architecture Centre, will take you through thirty buildings from the famous Avion Hotel, through Zeman's café, the Třeština power plant, the Jakub Deml house in Tasov, villa in the White Quarter in Luhačovice to the thermal swimming pool Green Frog in Trenčianské Teplice.

The project is implemented with the financial support of the Statutory City of Brno and the South Moravian Region.
