Views and connections Alexandra Kvasnicovรก


When I first started to sketch, my idea was definitelly about not big mass, maybe volume with gaps. Reason was that location and whole neighbourhood is really random, mostly small houses and castle with new hotel on the side. And I did not want to destroy or hide this national heritage. I was thinking about connecting it somehow. It was long way, I have to say.

Well as I mentiones, I made not so visual connection for pedestrians maybe, but I copied volume of hotel and I placed it on the same guide lines. Next task was to divide it from inside. For sure I wanted to design space in space with many many views from inside or outside. So I was trying to ďŹ nd THAT structure. Right one. Which will match, not disturb, make views, connect, etc.

Suddenly it came. I made structure made out of many blockstones. While in the middle of them we can walk, we can have outside exhibition, or we can just enjoy space. Yes, but making something so simple, on the other way is really hard, but I was trying so much, that it came also. So whole museum will be one level down and that cubes will make bigger highness and also space will have higher value.

In my last steps I was ďŹ ghting with disposition. I had doubts if I should make walking race as skeleton with ribs, or as a round. But I decided round because of more reasons. For instance we have always new way in front of us, so it is much more interesting to discover. I was also really thinking about independence, because there is placed bar, which I would like to use also when museum will be closed. So exhibition area can be closed. I made independent entarances too, so I do not see any problem.

This raster represents roof system, which allow us to use space in many different ways. I did not want to divide space strictly, I want you to choose. It is easy to change. It is easy to manipulate. This constructions is made for vertical panels and also for lights. It is allowing you to change lightings as it match to the exhibition.
