Milan Honzík was born in Prague in 1941. After graduating from the Faculty of Architecture of the Czech Technical University in Prague he worked as an architect in the Project Architecture Studio in Prague. He also worked in the Establishment for reconstruction of landmarks, as the head architect in Armprojekt Praha and is now again an architect of PAAT in Prague. He has implemented several reconstructions and constructions of various types of houses, palaces and other buildings. Amongst his most interesting are for example the Vietnamese restaurant in Prague 7 (1983), the Hotel ŠTEKL in Hluboká nad Vltavou (which won Construction of the Year in 1997) or the complete reconstruction of the house of Matyáš Bernard Braun in Prague 1 (Honorary recognition of the Community of Architects in 1992 and the annual prize of the Architectural Services in 1990). And of course the Great Fountain, known as Křižík's fountain (design, project, implementation).
