The exhibition will present the results of a five-year project examining the origin and attributes of the monumental values of Czech cities

The exhibition Hidden Order and the Inner Essence of the Unique Cities of the Czech Republic, which will take place from 1. 10. to 15. 11. 2020 in the Jaroslav Fragner Gallery, was put together by authors from the Faculty of Architecture of the CTU and the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics of the ASCR during the years 2016 - 2020. They analyzed the essential phenomena and attributes that create a comprehensive view of monumental values on the scale of urban units.

The aim of the research project NAKI II financed from the Program of Applied Research and Development of National Identity of the Czech Republic of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic (project identification code: DG16P02R025, 2016–2020) was to create tools and methodologies to determine basic elements of complex identity their monumental values, especially their public spaces and very valuable documents of creative medieval location.

One of the outputs of the project is a functional sample of a hypothetical staging device "gromy". Its use was experimentally verified by field measurements to determine the achievable accuracy.

A certified methodology was also created as a tool for identifying and protecting the complex values of historic cities. The methodology is intended primarily for the assessment and evaluation of the attributes of declared urban monument reserves as the most valuable manifestations of urban urbanism, or urban monument zones. With its universality based primarily on a comprehensive set of urban criteria, supplemented by landscape and architectural criteria, it enables the assessment and evaluation of other protected areas, but also other parts of towns and villages.

All the results will be presented by a traveling exhibition entitled The Hidden Order and the Inner Essence of the Uniqueness of the Historic Cities of the Czech Republic, which begins on October 1, 2020 in the Jaroslav Fragner Gallery in Prague, then will continue in České Budějovice, Pilsen and Telč. The exhibition will include a catalog.
