Legiobanka – under the sign of Rondocubism

Along with the birth of independent Czechoslovakia, there was a movement to
create a distinct national style of architecture. The Legiobanka building
on Prague’s Na Poříčí high street, designed by Josef Gočár, became
the prototype and determined the direction of so-called Rondocubism. It
literally took the edge off of Cubism, softening and rounding its cubes and
pyramids in the spirit of the Slavic tradition.
