Biography

Ferdinand Balcárek was a Czech architect and designer, focusing on interior design and decoration. He worked together with Karel Kopp on a number of projects. Initially, the stadium in Strahov was a wooden construction, but Alois Dryák won a competition to modernize the stadium with a classic design. Balcárek and Kopp were awarded second place for the plans they submitted to the 1932 Olympic Art Competition. After Dryák´s death in 1932, the planning work was finally entrusted to Balcárek and Kopp, and the upgrade was completed between 1932-38, with the wooden structure converted to reinforced concrete and brick.
