Professor Chen in the Mánes Gallery

Yesterday in our office we hosted a precious visitors all the way from China. The architect Hui Chen and his family. Young Tong Tong – the recent member of the Playful Architect project, literally cured our overworked minds with his ceaseless laughter.

Professor Chen has once again joined the ranks of the foreign friends of the Playful Architect project and helps us with the participation of one Chinese school, despite his tight schedule. At the same time we have planned the export of this year’s artwork collection to China, where we will go on a tour round the smaller cities (population around million).

We have also found out that the children who are to participate this year, would like to come to Prague and we decided have to make their wish come true.

Children’s day in senate and the exhibition Sights of my Region

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.

To conclude, here is some information of the present state of this year’s festival:
The preparatory works for the exhibition for the anniversary of the establishment of Czechoslovakia are advancing smoothly. The children are painting, taking photos; some of them are even making films.

The registration has been closed and this year, 673 children from 21 Czech schools, 102 children from four Slovakian schools and 348 children from abroad are taking part. All in all over 1000 playful architects – and that is a record!

Filming at the primary school Lupáčova

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.

Heritage of my homeland in the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic

Meeting with Cardinal Duka

The last meeting and scale model handover under this year’s Playful Architect annual took place on 27th of February 2018. The scale model of Matthias Gateway was created by Aleš Marboe and later turned into an artwork by the children from the foster home in Prague 6. Namely, Vilém and Tadeáš Charwot and Anička Doležalová.

The scale model was given to Cardinal Mr. Dominik Duka.  Petr Ivanov, the chairman, and Marta Kolmanová, the head of the Playful Architect association, attended on the behalf of the project. The Prague 6 district was represented by the architect Mrs. Eva Smutná and the children from primary and secondary school ZŠ Petřiny – Sever accompanied by their headmistress Mrs. Jana Kindlová.

After the scale model, commemorative plaque and other gifts were given to the cardinal, he told children something about the history of the Archbishop’s palace and his predecessors. We were given a tour with commentary by Mr. secretary and the local librarian – an expert on the history of this palace. The children could see tapestries in places, where the movie Amadeus was shot and the place, where the cardinal spends most of the time. Together we visited the chapel and at the end of the tour went up the secret staircase to get ourselves on the rooftop of the palace, from where we had an amazing view of Prague.

The kids didn’t want to leave and so were spent here two whole hours.

Feedback from Chotěšov primary school

We are happy for any feedback, especially from children. Therefore, we have asked around, whether the children have any message for us, so that we know that what we are doing makes sense and also to find out which things to improve.

As a first school to respond was ZŠ Chotěšov. You can take a look at their short essays and opinions in our gallery.

Moreover, their teacher Mrs. Hana Duffková sent us a series of photos from their excursion to Clam-Gallas Palace, so you can take a look, how they enjoyed the trip.
