  1. What is your position in the team?
    An architect.
  2. What is your favorite quotation, saying or a motto?
    I don’t have any, but there are many that I think about, when I read them somewhere.
  3. What is your favorite tree and why?
    Pine tree – just like the AIR House it affects all senses. But the best thing about it is its scent.

  6. A sentence from your favorite book?
    Each time you come to the square in Melanie, you will find yourself in the middle of a dialogue: a vainglorious soldier and an idler walk out of a door and meet a ruffled youngster with his fiancée: or a stingy father gives last advice to his daughter in love, and is interrupted by a daft servant who carries a note for a procuress. You return to Melanie after a few years and see that the dialogue still goes on: in the meantime, the idler, the procuress, and stingy father died, but the vainglorious soldier, daughter in love and daft servant took their place, while they were replaced by a hypocrite, a sneak and a stargazer. (Italo Calvin, Invisible cities)
  7. What should everybody know about the Czech Republic?
    We have the best beer in the world!
  8. Why are you interested in sustainability and green architecture or sustainable power supply?
    I think it is the only way to preserve all the beauties of our environment for our children and all the other generations.
  9. What about the AIR House do you like the most?
    The facing with a sheet paint surface.
  10. Your favorite building in the Czech Republic?
    St. Clara chapel in Troja.
