Prague – The management of Prague will award the architect Martin Rajniš (75) a silver medal of the capital. He will receive the award for an important lifelong work in the field of architecture connected with the capital. Fill it out from a document approved by Prague councilors today. Rajniš is the author of a number of Czech wooden lookout towers, including Doubravka in Černý Most, or in the 1970s he took part in the construction of the Máj department store on Národní třída. Prague values its important inhabitants in several ways, including honorary citizenship. The awarding of the medal has yet to be approved by city councilors.
Rajniš was born in Prague and spent almost his entire life in it. In 1969 he completed his studies at the Faculty of Architecture of the Czech Technical University in Prague and successfully completed his postgraduate studies at the Academy of Fine Arts. Together with John Eisler and Miroslav Masák, from 1972 to 1975 he participated in the project and construction of the Máj department store on Národní třída. He also works as a professor at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design or has held the position of chairman of the Board of the Institute of Planning and Development (IPR).
In 2016, Rajniš participated in the Guliver airship project, which is part of the DOX Center for Contemporary Art in Prague. He is also the author of wooden lookouts, including the Doubravka lookout tower in Černý Most, or the building of the new post office in Sněžka in the Krkonoše Mountains.
The award of the silver medal of the capital is associated with a financial gift of CZK 100,000. The municipality last awarded the bronze medal to the couple and choirmasters Vladislav and Zdenka Součková at the beginning of September this year.
