Duality is a concept as old as the mankind. Day and night. Good and evil. Yin and yang,
male and female.

„Modus et tempora mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis”
(fashion and times are changing and we are changing in them)

What was fashionable in the Middle Ages may not apply to our age. Times and fashions change. Can you imagine the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew in Pilsen with two towers? At the front façade there once stood two towers, or may have. The south tower, damaged during a fire in 1525, was capped off at the height of the adjoining nave. Contemporary taste since the initial design and construction in the 1300’s has changed and thus only one tower remained. But what if twin towers were in vogue again? How would the other one look like? Let’s try to at least imagine it...
