We are excited that the multi-media exhibition project aiming to present Adolf Loos’ unique interior design work as a result of the architect’s long-term activity in Pilsen, Czech Republic, which is not very well known to the international audience - has been open with a big success! 

An online concert streamed from Pilsen will be held as a part of the additional programming, as well as an online discussion with experts.

Pilsner Jazz Band

In 12 years of its existence, Pilsner Jazz Band won its place into Czech swing. This 8-member orchestra focuses on the "jazz golden era:" swing, but to add for a little bit of diversity, in the repertoire are included dixieland, boogie-woogie, blues and some latin-jazz standards. The band is regulary beeing invited to miscellaneous European festivals, performed in the USA, but also perform at various dance events, concerts, celebrations and other occasions. The seven instrumentalists in usual cast are accompanied by a beautiful singer with a characteristic velvet voice. PJB recorded four CDs: Old Jazz With New Face (2010), All of Us (2012), Happy Swingin' (2015) and Live at the Kennedy Center (2020).

  • The current project is being developed in cooperation with the Gallery of West Bohemia (represented by its curator of architecture collections Petr Domanický), and the City of Pilsen, whose history is inseparably connected with the name of Adolf Loos.
