Yesterday we opened an open-air exhibition in the gardens of the Wallenstein Palace – The Sights of my Region. Together with the office of the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic we have prepared a morning programme for approximately 400 children from Prague and Pardubice egion.

The event was initiated by the Senate’s first vice-president Miluše Horská, under whose patronage the event was organized and, representing the organizers (Playful Architect), by Mr. Petr Ivanov. Also Mr. Pavel Vošalík, director of department of the foreign policy analysis (the ministry of foreign affairs), deputy mayor of the city Pardubice Mrs. Helena Dvořáčková, deputy mayor of the municipal district Prague 6 Ing. Arch. Eva Smutná and Ing. Arch. Miroslav Řepa appeared on the event.

At the beginning, Mr. Adam Mišík sang a few songs and was warmly welcomed by the enthusiastic little fans, whose attention he kept till the end of his performance.

After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, we have opened the exhibition which will be available till 29. 6. 2018 at the Dripstone Wall.

Fun workshops and quizzes took place here, for example a drummer workshop organized by the school Svítání and drummer group Mlima Jua, whose performance we also had an opportunity to hear.

Both children and adults really enjoyed the musicians’ performance, almost each of our honoured guests gave the drumming a try on the stage, the children clapped their hands to the rhythm and sang easy chants.

The sun was shining a lot, so most of the children and adults were grateful for the caps given by Playful Architect and the water bottles provided by the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic. We hereby thank everyone for participating in a hope that next year we will celebrate the children’s day together with another exhibition.

Those are the artefacts that will keep children occupied so their parents can look through the exhibition and look at all the artefacts that came from all over the republic,” says Jan Šimr, who has a lot of experience with exhibitions for kids and with a smile adds that parents can also enjoy this interactive part.

Characteristic of the exhibition

Exhibition Architecture for the crown – People and architecture in the ties of Charles the IV. is concipated as a walk through the gothic city with the guide. The Guide is architect of the Charles the IV., Petr Parléř. Parléř has an audience with king and he needs to take care of a lot of things – visit a painter, glassblower, abbot and buy things from shop and from taylor, also visit baths, and finaly take plans of new cathedral from his building works. Children on this walk learn about architecture, buildings, art and life of the people in the times of reign of the Charles the IV., with his person and his reign. Charles the IV. as an emperor felt that he was predetermined to continue tradition of Charles the Great. The connection of the roman and czech crown was drawn from the clan motivation: after his mother Eliška (Elizabeth) he had premyslids roots and linkage to the celebrated czech history from which the most stand out the person of Saint Venceslaw. In the middle of the 14th century the czech lands were avoided by plague pandemy which killed more than 50% of the Europe population. This was the reason for the crisis of the west and south Europe and why the Czech was propserous and manage to catch up with the other countries in politics and culture sphere.
Besides Petr Parléř kinds were introduced with on of the best friends of Charles – Arnošt of Pardubice (1st archbishop of Prague), Master Havel of Strahov (Charles’s personal physician and astrologer).
Exhinition were made of scenery, models, artefacts and replicas of periodic objects, panles with information and pictures (image part was accented). Part of the exhibiot was continuous task for children – puzzle of stained glass (gothic window) and workshops – practical part, where children could try out some of the work by themself and make a thorough study.

The goal of the project Playful architect is to bring closer the children to the architecture. Education of our children in this field through their actual artistic work adds to their growth, esthetics and logic. Thanks to this projects children learns about the architects profession and their work, history of architecture and related to that also adds to their education in hostory and geographic fields, tehy started to perceive more of their surroundings and culture. They will understand the importance of quality architecture for the everyday life and in historical connections, they discover architectonics and cultural richness and understand how important it is to keep our heritage and take care of it properly.
Every year participating children first meet up on lecture or tour with architecture theme and they together do their art work. This year we pickes as a theme Heritage of my region and my homeland. Because of participation of 26 foreign schools from 18 states, our children learn a lot of about czech and foreign surrondings. Chosen children artworks were exposed and standalone exhibition in Rosenberg palace at Prague castle under the name of Playful heritage of my homeland.

 

Importance of the project:

Among others the benefit of the project Playful architect is to help childrne on complex ways to develop broad spectrum of abilities (art, work with materials – even with less common, new techniques, new utensils, depth perception), manual skills, supports creativity. Also it adds to knowledge children gained in other school subjects (like history, geography, math, geometry, art etc.) with personal experience and natural playfulnes of children.

Also it liven up the school studies in adequate way. We are making an emphasis on correct working habits and procedures and development of handwork which is a bit lost in nowadays technical world and our children are having trouble to write and draw by hand. We can’t even mention coordiantion eye-hand and fine motorics.

Project allows children to work together regardless to their different abilities, preconditions and specifics needs. It allows cooperative and individual aproach to educative work. Interdiciplinary projects can show some and help to grow to some extraordinary talents kids might have and whih could be hidden in usual school enviroment.

Children can work individually or in groups, they meet new and interesting people, artists and figures from architecture and politcs whom they couldn’t normally meet.
