NEW FACE OF PRAGUE
24 februarie – 17 martie / Universitatea de Arhitectura si Urbanism Ion Mincu

Praga este unul dintre cele mai bine pastrate orase din Europa si nu este neobisnuit sa intalnesti o varietate uimitoare de stiluri arhitecturale – de la Baroc la functionalism – intr-o plimbare de doar cateva minute. Dar ce stiti despre arhitectura contemporana din Praga?

Expozitia curata de Galeria Jaroslav Fragner prezinta peste 30 dintre cele mai interesante constructii si proiecte realizate in Praga dupa 1990. Pe langa icoane arhitecturale ca Dancing House creata de Frank Gehry si Vlado Milunic expozitua prezinta constructii si proiecte mai putin cunoscute, dar la fel de interesante din punctul de vedere al conceptului si arhitecturii porpuse. Scopul expozitiei este a arata evolutia dinamica a arhitecturii contemporane din Praga in contextul productiei europene dar si cu privire la specificele locale. Partea principala a expozitiei este impartita in cateva categorii. In ultima parte vor fi prezentate si proiecte nerealizate care reprezinta o viziune pentru viitor. Expozitia este compusa din fotografiile a doi importanti fotografi de arhitectura cehi Ester Havlova si Filip Slapal.

ENGLISH VERSION

Prague is one of the best-preserved cities in Europe, and it s not unusual to come across a striking variety of architectural
styles – from Baroque to functionalism – in the space of a few blocks. But how has the Czech capital fared when it comes to contemporary architecture? It is the subject of a new exhibition entitled The New Face of Prague.
The exhibition prepared by the Jaroslav Fragner Gallery presents more than thirty most appealing projects done in Prague after 1990. The exhibition also focuses on the historical context. Beside well known architectural icons like the Dancing House designed by Frank Gehry and Vlado Milunic, located by the banks of the River Vltava, which is perhaps the most striking, and most famous, modern building in the Czech capital, the exhibition also shows buildings or projects, which are less known, but unique as well. The main part of the exhibition is divided into several categories involving reconstruction and industry, offices, villas, culture and, in particular, vision for the future.
The exhibition is based on photographs, all of them made by the well known Czech architecture photographers Ester
Havlova and Filip Slapal.
