Kaplicky's library may get another chance

Jan Kaplicky's project of the Czech National Library's (NK) new building in Prague, that the city authority rejected a couple of years ago, may get a new chance now as it is backed by all political parties and by the new culture minister, Jiri Besser. The widow of the Czech-born British architect, Eliska Kaplicky, has won significant support from Zaha Hadid, for cooperation on the project.

However the financing of the project still remains an unsettled problem. But Kaplicky's design, dubbed "blob" or "octopus" for its organic shape, could get a chance thanks to the changes that may be expected at the Prague City Hall after the autumn local elections.
