Architecture with Humour was the title of the submission by Stepan Martinovsky, of the Czech Technical University of Prague, for the UK Czech Embassy's 'Architecture for Democracy' competition. His solution was to place the embassy among other attractions on the South Bank river walk, rather than in the more traditional ambassadorial areas. It includes a 'culture box', a tower of offices and the ambassador's residence, housed in a symbolic roof garden.
