‘Marshmallow’ building project wins approval from Prague council

A controversial building project in the centre of Prague has been given planning approval. The so-called “Marshmallow” a six story apartment building in pastel shades of pink, grey, and white near the St Agnes 13th century convent in Prague’s Old Town has been approved by the local authority according to public broadcaster Czech Television. Construction work cannot, however, start before an appeals are heard. The striking building has been the subject of opposition and public demonstrations by a series of protest groups.
