It was precisely the building of the UCT that was constructed as the very first building of the university campus in Dejvice. The author of the building, as well as the managing designer of the entire campus, is Antonín Engel, the student of the renowned Otto Wagner. Completion of the second building, which was executed with an inter-war precision, was finished in 1937. Another development that was planned to follow was interrupted by the economic crisis, and, subsequently, by the Second World War. In result, the original monumental intention of Engel was never carried out. Thanks to a progressive restoration finished in 2015, it has managed to restore and emphasize the timeless design of the interiors, which were executed at a high level of handicraft skills at the time. Large mineral collections, which belong to the largest in Europe, will be put on display during the festival as part of extra activities.
