Moravian Palace, Brno

Moravian Palace, Brno

Palace Moravia (Palác Morava) in Brno was built over by Arnošt Wiesner by a slightly different complex of buildings. He had to face not only ground floor difficult parcel but also geologically poor sub-soil. During the design, he also cooperated with structural engineer Jaroslav Valenta. Thanks to the genial natural lighting in the top area of the building, Wiesner dedicated this part to residential apartments. A contrast of reinforced concrete and raw brickwork is also very interesting. Later on, Wiesner linked the building of Moravská zemská životní pojišťovna (Moravian Life Insurance Company) to the whole construction. The project was finally completed in 1936.
