doc. PhDr. Richard Biegel, Ph.D.

He deals mainly with the history of architecture from the Renaissance to the 20th century. However, he also pays a great deal of attention to contemporary developments in architecture, urban planning and conservation. He is actively involved in the preservation of architectural heritage (since 1996 he has been active in the Club for Old Prague) and has published works on these topics. His studies, e.g. the monograph Between Baroque and Classicism or the essays in the comprehensive synthesis Baroque Architecture in Bohemia, are characterised by an effort to understand individual architectural phenomena in a broader domestic and European context.
