The Transgas building in Prague, described by some historians as an exceptional example of Brutalist architecture, will not be added to the list of cultural heritage sites, the dailies Hospodářské noviny and Právo report, citing information from the Culture Ministry, which allegedly stopped a preliminary evaluation over the matter.
The news has not officially been confirmed by the ministry as not all relevant parties have been informed in writing; until then, the ministry has declined to comment. Without heritage status, the site can be cleared for demolition to make room for new flats.
