Architecture combines tradition with modernity
Three buildings that were built in 1872, 1905, and 1923 underwent major construction upgrades focused on creating a modern environment that would be suitable for study and research and for eco-friendly maintenance. The architectural design was provided by Petr Pelčák, who combined modern functionalist effectiveness with historical decorations in the form of classical sculpture castings.
