Wondering what Prague will look like in a few years? Are you an architect or just a fan of architecture? Then this place is made for you!
CAMP is an abbreviation standing for Centre for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning. It may not sound that cool, but it kinda is. Its goal is to improve the public debate on the development of Prague. And even though it opened just a few months ago it’s doing it well so far.
It is based in an old unused socialist (you cannot miss the massive brutalist brick) building, though inside it is pretty modern. The dominant feature of the interior is a huge screen where you can see projections of all the planned projects in Prague for the upcoming few years with detailed info. If you’d be more interested in any of them you can also make your own folder from one-page handouts to each of the projects.
There is also a small architecture-related library/book store as well as a cafe which makes it a good meeting place. Long opening hours, a location close to my home and some decent coffee make CAMP a fair option when I just want to go for a quick coffee with a friend on Sunday evening. And if that’s still not enough to convince you to visit CAMP, check for their updates as they organize loads of events and movie projections.
