Long Description:

This Czechoslovak post stamp issued in 1988, from series devoted to contemporary Prague' architecture, depicts headquarters of former state foreign trade enterprise KOOSPOL (nowadays CUBE office center) in Prague-Vokovice.

The monumental KOOSPOL building, work of architects Stanislav Franc, Jan Novácek and Vladimír Fencl, belongs among the best examples of brutalist architecture in Czech lands. KOOSPOL, constructed in 1974-1977, is spacious square ground plan structure (60×60 m) illuminated by large atrium with park and flowing water. Whole KOOSPOL looks not so massive thanks to supporting "stem" separating the building' core from the ground levels. KOOSPOL, now known under name The CUBE, was completely reconstructed (especially interior) in 2010-2011,
