'One of the few projects that takes a specific attitude to materials'
COMMENDATION VIKTOR JAK LONDON METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY Building for Pictures Tutors: David Grandorge, Matthew Barnett-Howland This much-needed cultural framework could raise the ambition for a cultural expansion and provide enough gravitas for a third node to emerge in the centre of the Czech capital, Prague.
The framework favours timber as a sustainable construction material, both for traditional cityblock architecture as well as for the three investigational tall public buildings. The 36m-tall gallery, built from engineered timber, allows the public life of the street to enter into the building.
Side-lit galleries offer a range of scales and grain of exhibition space and servicing.
