Martin Rajnis is a renowned Czech architect, who along with Johnny Eisler and Miroslav Masak, authored the famous Maj building (now Tesco) in the centre of Prague. Designed in the high tech style Maj was one of Czechoslovakia's first department stores and is now a cultural heritage site.
But that is only one of the architect's achievements: in the 1990s after the fall of Communism, he was involved in the extensive redesigning of the area around Andel in Prague's Smichov district. Since, the architect has also concentrated more and more on designs using natural materials - especially wood - in newer projects, including an acclaimed building on the Czech Republic's highest peak, Snezka.
