Gulliver’s Travels

From a distance, it looks as though a zeppelin has landed on the roof of Prague’s DOX Centre for Contemporary Art. On closer examination, it’s apparent that the airship is actually a clever architectural installation.

Gulliver, named for Jonathan Swift’s iconic 18th century traveler, is a uniquely designed space for readings, art talks, literary discussions, and public forums. The timber and steel construction is the brainchild of DOX Director Leos Válka and architect Martin Rajnis.

Located in the up-and-coming Holesovice District, the DOX is overlooked by most visitors to the Czech capital, but well worth a visit.
