Docomomo US/Hawai'i and AIA Honolulu are co-hosting a talk story presentation by Adam Štěch at the Center for Architecture in Honolulu. Prague-based architecture and design writer, curator, and researcher, Adam Štěch, will present his various exhibition and publishing projects, covering 20th century modernism.
For 15 years, Adam traveled extensively to document hidden and forgotten gems of 20th century architecture and design. This research was then used as content for articles in international magazines and exhibition projects, usually created with his colleagues from OKOLO creative collective, founded in Prague in 2009. At this event, he will share some of his most exciting adventures and discoveries from all around the world and his creative process.
Drinks will be available by donation at the Center for Architecture.
