The Openness Principle. UMPRUM Technology Center in Prague Ivan Kroupa, Jana Moravcová, Tomáš Zmek

The new technology center finally embodies the idea of UMPRUM as a fully functioning part of the Prague city center. The building front emphasizes and opens up the main entrance to express the idea of openness and communication. By leaving out the full height of the neo-renaissance facade’s entrance segment, the building demonstrates its transformation from an elementary school to a university. There are two wings of five stories and two basement floors each, offering modern technical rooms and equipment for all study programs and various presentation needs, including technology for the building’s operation. The technical rooms are placed along the sides, lighter uses are concentrated in the center of the layout. All spaces are organized to let in sunlight and to facilitate visual links to the central semi-transparent rooms.

The Art of Transformation. Zenger Electrical Substation Transformed to Art Museum in Prague Jan Schindler, Ludvík Seko, Zuzana Drahotová / Schindler Seko architekti

At a prime location in the Prague city centre, just across Old Castle Stairs in Malá Strana, a new contemporary art gallery Kunsthalle Praha was opened in 2022. The former Zenger Electrical Substation building was transformed entirely for the new purpose. The 1930s substation, which actually replaced an even older building of the Bruska Barracks, had a modern, industrial interior hidden behind an unassuming neo-classical facade. The conversion chose a similar approach—preserving the historical frontier due to heritage requirements, but reorganising the interior gallery spaces in a completely new way. Conference rooms, education spaces, a cafe with a terrace, and a ground-floor art shop complement the three separate exhibition halls.
