New Theater for Jindřichův Hradec
1st place in Diploma projects 2019 competition
Matěj Šebek designed a new municipal theater in the devalued garden of the former Franciscan monastery in Jindřichův Hradec.
The author stated that he tried to "moderate contact with the monastery and activate its garden." The jury assessed that the design of the new theater for Jindřichův Hradec "represents a sophisticated, genius loci sense and a very creatively mastered assignment." The jury appreciated "the author's ability to reflect on architecture also from the point of view of the purpose of such a construction, ie from the point of view of a theater building and theater experience, which should bring emotional and intellectual enrichment to human life. The sophisticated architectural and theatrical scenario of this design is able to initiate such experiences." According to the jurors, Matěj Šebek was awarded the highest prize for "a refined graphic design and presentation, a sophisticated architectural and theater script and inspirational work with the genius loci of the garden."
