During the era of Communism, little was done architecturally except the surrounding of the lovely city of Prague with the unfortunate mass produced panelaky. After the fall of the Iron Curtain a building boom occurred in the Czech Republic, continuing to this day. Numerous malls and business headquarters have popped up all over the city, some blending in with the old architecture and some sticking out like sore thumbs. Only a handful of daring controversial designs have graced Czech soil, hopefully there will be more to come in the future.
