my 6. term architectural project.
in brief: pilgrimage church of Krtiny in one of the latest works of Jan Blaej Santini Aichel, probably the best and most unique czech baroque architect (check out this for example: [link]
). The thing is that the church was never completed due to lack of funds and reformations of Josef II.. More precisely, there is only one cloister done, which makes the whole composition unsymmetric.
And here is where we come - we want nothing less then to complete the whole church. Since this would be extremelly expensive, we had to also find a new function for the new cloister, or the space below, some good reason why to do this whole thing.
I decided to create a center for czech baroque art, since there is nothing like that so far, at least I don't know about any decent one. It's basically a gallery + large auditorium for concerts of baroque music, lectures, it can work even as a theatre. Everything done under the cloister, so I didn't have to really mess up with Santini's work, I'm building sort of pedestal for it.
I'm too tired to translate the descriptions to english, so hope you'll get the idea just from the pics, if not, I'll update this later.
btw, the church and cloister 3D model was mostly done by my schoolmates - Milan, Dave, Pavel and Honza, they did quite outstanding job on it. The final 3DM file has 300 Mb and it will be printed on 3D printer in 1:100 scale (which will cost about as much as cheep new motorcycle...), in full detail. I'll post photos of it when it's done, it's gonna be quite epic
