Program Architektura (kulturní prostředí) pro celostátní volby – Hlavní architekt ČR Petr Lešek

Náš svět se skládá ze vztahů (sociálních, ekonomických…) a prostředí, v němž se odehrávají a které jim tvoří podmínky. Mnoho politiků se však soustředí jen na vztahy a prostředí buď nevnímá, nebo řeší pouze jeho nutnou údržbu. Neuvědomují si, že kvalitní prostředí udržuje a přitahuje lidi. Investice do kvalitního prostředí se – slovy dneška – „vyplatí“...

Scroll. St. Wenceslas Church in Sazovice Marek Štěpán / Atelier Štěpán /

The idea to build a church in Sazovice was conceived before WWII but it was only six years ago when the inhabitants of Sazovice returned to this idea and founded the Society for Church Construction. The church is situated in the natural center of the village and its geometry is based on a circular ground plan with a 16.8 meters radius that comes from the archetype of St. Wenceslas Chapel in St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague. The circle can be also perceived as a period, a place to stop, rest, and contemplate. The architectonic concept works with the tube‑shaped skin and forms it as if it were paper. Each wall is slit by a window that brings daylight inside the church and softly shapes its interior space. The church has three floors – the main circular nave and two choir lofts – and the basement with social facilities.

Free Form. House in the Orchard, Prague-Kyje Jan Šépka / Šépka architekti /

This unusual family house was built on a sloping site oriented to the north on the outskirts of Prague – in Kyje – overlooking the River Rokytka valley. The house reacts to the surrounding full-grown trees with its shape, character, and volume. The ground plan of the house is based on a circle that transforms into two squares on the southern side; the continuous three‑story space gets narrower towards the top of the house and ends with a skylight. The living room on the ground floor with a gallery oriented to the north thus receives sunlight from the south. The ground floor also houses a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom; another bedroom is available on the first floor, the gallery serves as a study room. The house is designed as a wooden structure with a reinforced concrete foundation that is limited to a stem in the steep slope. The wooden structure is acknowledged in the interior; the exterior is insulated with a polyurethane protective spray.

Epicenters of Architecture. Editorial #02/2017 Filip Landa

All over Europe, and the world, there are institutions acting as architecture liaisons to the public, be it nationwide or just locally in regions and cities. Here, in the Czech Republic, we don’t have an institution that could be labeled as a center of Czech architecture. This task is being taken up by various activist organizations, however, they are struggling with financial, personal, or legal limits. This issue of ERA21 is focused on institutions integrated in the official state or local administration structure.
