Kaplicky threatens to walk from overdue Prague library

Jan Kaplicky has threatened to walk away from his competition-winning National Library in Prague after becoming exasperated with the slow progress of the scheme.

The Future Systems partner also claimed he would sue Prague officials after they once again put off a decision on his high-profile sea creature-shaped design.

Speaking to Prague daily Lidove noviny, Kaplicky said: 'If a decision is not made in a month, I will withdraw from the project.’
