The authors of Congress Centre don't like Knizak's idea

The main four authors of the Congress Centre do not agree with the idea of rebuilding the Congress Centre into the new National Library. They state to change the function would be very expensive, and that Milan Knizak has never consulted the idea with them.

Milan Knizak came with the idea a few weeks ago. After a year of useless debates passed from the international contest, which set Kaplicky’s Blob as the winner of the National Library design, he offered an idea of how to solve the situation.

Knizak claims the reconstruction would be simple and inexpensive, according to the original engineers, to reconstruct the Congress Centre in this way would mean the exact opposite. More importantly, the Centre is, according to them, very important for Prague, and for events like the International Monetary Fund meeting there is not many other possibilities of placement.
