Demonstration for Blob this Thursday

The supporters of the new National Library in Prague, the ‘Blob’ building by Kaplicky and his Future System studio are going to express their wish. The gathering takes place at the Old Town Square, 5th February in 18:30. The top supporters are to come; Vlastimil Jezek, an architect and former Prague mayor Jan Kasl and Prague representative Jiri Witzany, who appealed to Pavel Bem to put through the library after death of Jan Kaplicky.

Bem’s reaction was: “ Prague has already made the definitive full stop behind the National Library long ago” but Witzany disagrees – “Prague has to come up to the unfortunate procedure when the library was realized, but that is not possible without certain politicians changing their attitude.”

After Kaplicky’s death, an Internet group of supporters came into being, growing rapidly, now having about 20 000 members. How many people can come to support the library in the real life remains a question.
