The Urology Clinic of the General University Hospital
The building of the Urology Clinic at the General University Hospital (VFN) complements the existing healthcare facilities, and the design by the architect couple Růžička aimed to harmonize with the Prague skyline and the surrounding historic buildings. For these reasons, the facade features concrete “blades” combined with tile cladding that responds to the decorative masonry of the neighboring Neo-Gothic Provincial Maternity Hospital with its colorful appearance. The Urology Clinic building is divided into two parts – a massive multi-story base and a sitting block with regular horizontal bands on top. The varied concrete surfaces and material combinations enhance its dramatic character. Just beyond the entrance doors, there is a sculpture inside depicting a family, created by the artistic duo Jaroslava Brychtová and Stanislav Libenský.
