Fórum Karlín is a multi-functional hall located in Karlín, a distinct neighbourhood near the center of Prague, known for its concentration of modern architecture and currently expanding at a very high pace. In the last fews years Karlín has become the place to be in Prague.
Fórum Karlín was built by the Karlín Group on the former grounds of an historical steam boiler factory, operating from 1908 throughout the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Fórum Karlín was designed by the world-renowned Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill, and the AED project studio. “Fórum Karlín is a unique industrial building. My job was to emphasize the uniqueness of this impressive place and gently alter its original industrial usage” said Ricardo Bofill. The project successfully achieved accentuating the historical and industrial beauty of Karlín.
