The National Museum Park in Collaboration with Whomever Ondřej Fous

You have to collaborate with others when working in the city centre, despite many still being opposed to the idea. Someone or something will make you. There’s no point resisting, though it does happen. There is a point in enquiring, analysing, listening, finding competent people and sustainable solutions. All that sounds quite sensible and simple. But the truth is very different. The revitalisation of Čelakovského sady in Prague was successful in that it changed many things, cleared new ways through the snow, and also followed some paths already made by others.

The New and Even Newer Wave of Danish Architecture Kristoffer Lindhardt Weiss Interviewed by Jan Magasanik and ERA21

From Tractors to Philharmonics. Restoration of the National Pavilion Z at České Budějovice Exhibition Centre Martin Krupauer, Pavel Kvintus, Daniel Jeništa, Petr Hornát / A8000

A key element in the design of Libor Erban and Jan Benda’s 1970s exhibition pavilion was its massing, with three simple box volumes stacked on top of each other like an inverted pyramid. Over time, this principle became suppressed and unclear. Recovering, redefining and redeveloping it was the main goal of the restoration project. One part of the pavilion reveals its load-bearing structure.

The restored pavilion uses new and sophisticated building operation systems, which are not concealed but installed in a new technology tower.

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.
