Around 160 people took part in a demonstration at the Transgas building in Prague, slated for demolition to make way for new apartments. Protestors are laying blame for the planned demolition of the complex of buildings, an example of Brutalist architecture, with outgoing Culture Minister Daniel Herman. The Culture Ministry refused to name the building a cultural heritage site.
Protestors called the decision for the building to be torn down “immoral”.
Monday’s demonstration was organized by Architektura 489, the Old Prague Club and others.
