About Change this

Věra Machoninová was a Czech architect. Shee designed most of her buildings with her husband, Vladimír Machonin.

The Machonins were part of the strong generation that began creating at the time of the waning historicism of Socialist Realism, and which from the mid 1950s was establishing intermittent contact with world events. It was the generation of architects which first acquired a solid professional background in its perfect command of the traditions of domestic building craft and, building on this, began to implement in its own work the artistic and engineering aspects of architecture. The search for a new architectural expression and for new construction and material approaches was symptomatic of this generation. A generation of strong engineer-architects.
