As a young architect and member of architect Karel Sramek’s Atelier Beta Prague Project Institute, Jan Bočan was assigned to elaborate a study of a representative office in London and together with his colleague Karel Stepansky ended up being the main architect of the new Czechoslovak Embassy which was granted the prestigious RIBA Architecture Award in 1971.

Jan Bočan is also one of the architects of the main train station in Prague and a number of other Czech embassies around the world.
