Conservation of the torso of Zvířetice castle

Ing. arch. Eliška Houdová


The project shows 2 variants on 3 walls. The conservation variant and more radical version of the instructed reconstruction. The aim of the project is to present two approaches to torsional architecture repairs and thus point out the importance of the torsion as a silhouette in the landscape and at the same time the fact that torsional architecture repairs and access to them is still a matter of debate and conflict. Sensitive conservation works can prolong the life of the monument, on the contrary, reckless interventions in the historic masonry can help to perish.
