Bára I and Bára II in Czech Republic by Martin Rajniš

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Article source: Martin Rajniš

The history of the tower Bára has got all atributes of a dramatic story. Town council of Chrudim decided to build an out-look tower in the forest boundary, where the landscape provides beautiful panoramic view of the surroundings. An architectonic contest was made and as the winning project was marked the one by Martin Martin Rajniš from e-Mrak team. An out-look tower in the shape of truncated triangular pyramid, made out of larch planks with minimum number of fixed joints, secured by metal tow bars. Acces to the view platform is provided by circular oak stair, which is fixed on the convulated steel pole rod in the middle of the tower. Upon the view platform is placed a mast made of steel tubes with flashlight on the top. Out-look Bára was festively opened for public on the 21st of June 2008. Unfortunately, a massive storms, with a power of tornado in some locations, swept across the Czech republic just four days later. One of them appeared at the region of Chrudim and caused irrecoverable damage to the new-built out-look. Whirlwind left nothing but a mass of wreckage a few meters from the place were original out-look bas placed. However, citizens of Chrudim did not give up and the decision to build a new one was made almost immediately. On the 3rd of September 2009 was the new tower – Bára II opened. This new out-look is pretty much the same as the previous one was. It is just slightly lower and built in a way to resist the wind with power of a cyclone (approximately 200 kms per hour, in contrast to the previous one, which was able to resist only 130 kms per hour). Bára II has also got more security components, including steel cables with tension varying each thirty minutes according to air moisture. View from the platform is usualy the most interesting feature of the out-look, but Bara II has much more to offer. For visitors with interest in technics has to be pleasure to see the unique construction with number of simple, but clever details. Those, who are more into philosophy could use the wall of the tower as a source of meditation. Variation of horizontal wooden lines and gaps between them makes really delightful view. The structure reminds of water clarification and makes interferential optical effect, which is well known for its sedative action.
