Before going into the project feedback I will like to congratulate you that it need good courage to present your project on an international platform and thanks to INSPIRE LI team for providing such opportunity.
I have read out your project writeup, your inspiration of the building exterior form and its actualization is remarkable but the most interesting point to me you missed out the interior design, as I have seen the Mucha's artworks which is mainly inspire from a Feminine Body and bright colors which you have missed in your building interior. instead of having dark walls the interior can be treated as Mucha's artworks that would give a more artistic look the the building.
-As far as the building planning is concern the drawings are not readable and clear so I cant comment on them, next time it should be clearly Labeled and readable.
Best wishes for your Future.
Thank you for your advice.
The goal was to create an art gallery for artworks of Alfons Mucha in Prague, Holešovice. The shape of the building reflects elements like cloth or woman's hair, which are being repeated through most of Mucha's paintings. The building should be elegant and attract attention by its shape and at night by its luminous facade. It's located next to the Tipsport Arena Praha.
The object consists of three floors:
underground: garages, building services technologies, restoration workrooms
1st floor - entrance hall, all of the Mucha's artworks in 4 connected exhibition halls, restaurant, souvenir shop and others
2nd floor - universal exhibition hall, workshops, lecture rooms and offices
The part of thee project was also designing the surrounding of the gallery. I decided to use water elements supplemented by greenery to create a suitable parter for Alfons Mucha's Gallery.
The construction is made of GFRC panels supported by rainforced concrete walls and columns. Surface of the building differs through different part of the building. Entrance hall and restaurant are iluminated through panels of insulating glass. Exhibition halls are equipped with special gallery soffit, which allowes the light to go through in a specific way. All the facade is covered by a net with light elements.
