The prestigious 2014 Architecture Grand Prix has gone to the SIAL studio for its conversion of an early 20th century municipal spa in Liberec into a gallery and depository. An international jury selected the project from 69 entries in the competition, which is run by the Society of Czech Architects and the Czech Chamber of Architects. The jury said the conversion had succeeded in maintaining the “relationship between the historic and the new at the desired equilibrium”. Architect Zdeněk Edel, who designed the Parkhotel in Prague, received a lifetime achievement award at Tuesday evening’s prize giving ceremony in the city.
