[ Centre for Central European Architecture ]

CCEA is dedicated to Central Europe and its culture.

an alternative space for further education and research in architecture. Focuses on experts and professional architects, as well as wider public interested in following current developments in architecture and looking for possible ways of perceiving and understanding it. Research based both theoretically and practically connects architecture with other humanities and arts.

CCEA is an independent, non-profit organization established in 2001.
The ambition of independence is decisive and hard-and-fast for our activities.

“We don’t perceive own mission as mere popularization of architecture but mainly as searching, reading and redefining the architecture identity of central Europe.”


Our passion is the contemporary city.

As a city studio we seek for new interpretation of the city and its cultural and programme enrichment. We develop urban potential in cultural and research projects. We avoid quick-profit-oriented projects with no long-term vision nor added community value.
MOBA* is about joint building of the world we would like to live in.

In the last ten years MOBA has stood at the birth of many research projects both in the Czech republic and abroad as an organizer of the Architectural Competitions.


“We do not perceive architects as design suppliers only; they are involved creators of the space we live in.”

In 2001 MOBA founded Centre for Central European Architecture – CCEA, the first independent architectural centre in the Czech republic that deals with architecture on a theoretical and research basis.

* MOBA an old Slavic term for logrolling that is preserved in some parts of Central Europe
