“Because I am not able to create a multifunctional novel which would be a literary, visual, musical, theatrical and dance work all that at the same time, I have settled here for the making of a connection between literature and architecture. My novel Avion is a novelistic model of the Avion hotel – one of the most remarkable buildings in the town of Brno, designed by the architect Bohuslav Fuchs . It has its ten floors, vertical openings from one chapter into another, it is simply complicated in its functionalism, its narrative space is narrow but also dense, and there is a terrace-like view from the last (tenth) chapter. And now it is the architects´ turn to build a hotel inspired by a novel of mine, let´s say Nocturnal Tango / Noční tango.”
