Three Fountains in Pilsen, Republic Square in Czech Republic by Ondrej Císler

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Fountains develop the monumental spatial concept of the Square, which was founded by the Premysl Otakar the II., the fifth King of Bohemia in the Middle Ages. They complete the cadence of proportions and material order that was first used on the 1681 Plague Column in one of the four corners. Names of the three fountains are freely inspired by the Coat of Arms of the city. The concept defines architecture of the sculptural spouts as Signs in space, reviving the original concept of “wasserkasten”, big bowls accumulating water for public usage. Poems by Petr Borkovec are prepared to be inscribed in gold on the surface of the fountains in 2015, the year when Pilsen will become European Capital of Culture.

Town House in Washington, DC by Robert Gurney Architect

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Built like its neighbors, over a century ago and part of a continuous network of buildings in a historical district, this town house has been completely renovated. Regulations required that the traditional limestone facade remain intact. The bottom floor of the facade has been reworked within the existing limestone composition in an effort to provide a separate entrance and storefront for a commercial tenant in the lower level. The rear facade, located in an alley has been completely reworked to provide more light into the building.
