A smooth semester full of beautiful work. FA invites you to a studio work exhibition preview

The ongoing exhibition of studio projects from the summer semester can be visited until 28 June. It features projects from nearly seventy studios of Architecture and Urbanism, Landscape Architecture and Design. The opening will take place on Thursday, May 30 at 6 pm.

The exhibition offers a view of the emerging generation on the direction of architecture, landscape architecture and design. The studio projects address topics such as the housing crisis, adaptation to climate change and a sensitive approach to architectural heritage. The summer semester also focused on exploring new uses for previously neglected urban sites.

Studio Císler- Pazdera dealt with a plot of land in Malá Strana, which is part of the historic Sokol complex of Michna Palace and Tyrš House and currently serves as a parking lot. The students explored the typology and themes of sports buildings and looked for ways to build on the local tradition and develop the site further. The students of the Hájek-Hulín studio were looking for a new use for the automatic telephone exchange. They propose transforming the now mostly dilapidated buildings from the 1960s to the 1980s into cultural institutions, galleries, concert halls or schools.

The Chalupa-Holubcová and Sosna-Filsak studios were dedicated to thinking about the currently unsatisfactory state of Prague's main railway station, searching for and naming the real shortcomings and the necessary steps to remedy them. The existing check-in hall is an architectural icon, a house that is important for the image of Czech culture, art history and architecture. So while the recent competition dialogue envisages its demolition, the students have been looking for ways to integrate it and the whole station back into the life of the city.

Sitta studio worked with the theme of habitability of the spaces under the bridges. How to use places where the sun never shines, where it never rains? For many people around the world, this is the only roof over their heads. How to transform it so that it becomes a place of relative comfort, not only for humans?

Designing confectionery - from biscuits to chocolates - and packaging that tells a story, an experience and stimulates the senses. An unconventional assignment from the first-year design studio Jaroš. The Bébarová studio has teamed up with the traditional Czech glassworks Preciosa. The students created jewellery in response to the human body and their designs will take part in the Master of Crystal 2024 competition.

The central motif of the Streit studio exhibition is a reinterpretation of a customary object that traditionally accompanied folk ceremonies. The students questioned the purpose of the modern interpretation of such objects and attempted to re-engage them in contemporary life. Rituals, ceremonies, symbols and messages are returning in a new form.

The exhibition of studio works can be visited until 28 June 2024 daily from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm. Admission is free and wheelchair accessible. All the projects created by students of FA CTU can be viewed online, the first years have their own web gallery.
