On Friday 11. 5. 2018 we shot a reportage about the Playful Architect at the primary school Lupáčova in Prague 3 for ČT:D channel. Meanwhile we had the opportunity to see how the children handled this year’s topic and what sort of activities did the teacher come up with.
We also invited the mayor of Prague 3, Ing. Vladislava Hujová, who informed the children briefly about important matters in architecture and plans in this field coming up in near future.
One class was also lectured by Ing.arch. Václav Aulický, namely about the way of living from the prehistoric times up till present. He emphasized important aspects of the architect’s job and also mentioned a broad variety of pros and cons of his job.
The Reportage will be aired after the exhibition in Senate (22.5.) either on Tuesday or Wednesday on the News of ČT:D channel.
On monday 11th of december 2017 we were meetng at pilsens bishopric with children from Elementary Art School of Pilsen and with the bishop. During our project this year Playful temple builders which was fociusing on baroque architecture we were workig with four schools from Pilsen, Ostrava, Prague and Přelouč on special projekt. We provided a model and children were supposed to finished it with their art. Finished models were shown at the exhibitions in Paris at WHC UNESCO and in Prague in Clam-Gallas palace. Now we wanted to return these models back to the children who made them so they can gift it to authorized person.
Children form Elementary art school under the supervision of the principal Mr. Karel Syka were making the front of the pilsner bishopric. This model was really admired by the visitors. Many stopped by and said they don’t believe this was made by children.
The author of the model is Aleš Marboe.

He even invited them into his office and showed them ceilling mural of the Pilsner Madonna, inspired by the famous statue from the Pilsner cathedral of Saint Bartholomew. Also he did a littleautographing session and sing New Yers card to every child with dedication and wish of blessed Christmass.
