11.7. – 21.7. 2011 // courtyard of The House of Lords of Kunštát and 4AM/Gallery of architecture
The main topic of the workshop is the creation of the outdoor furniture (benches, lamps, bicycle stands, etc.) not only for the empty space of the courtyard of The House of Lords of Kunštát and the café Trojka placed inside, but also for other places in the center of Brno, which do not have adequate functional elements suitable for use in public space. The final product of this summer workshop will not be just furniture created from non-standart materials. It will also include an integrated light and sound installation.
During the workshop, participants will carry out analysis and mapping in the streets of Brno together to design and create urban mobiliary. Subsequently they will monitor and document wether it can withstand everyday use.
Workshop will be led by architects Jaroslav Sedlák (4AM) a Crist Borcan a Alex Axint (STUDIO BASAR / RO) a Jiří Suchánek (FAVU).
