Theater in a Garden

Building or even designing anything to monastery garden of such an important monument as Emauzský klášter is, one must be very careful and cautious and have a great humility. Current state with tennis courts in monastery garden is absolutely outrageous and I am trying to fix it. My primary goal is to reinforce strengths, especially the monastery and its garden. Mass of my building is basicly formed by the surrounding environment, I obey street line of neighbouring building. From west is my limitation the eastern wall of monastery, I am not crossing the line of this wall and this is my way to respect the historical monument of monastery. In the same time I am building up to the same height as surrounding buildings. This project is bringing new function into the neighborhood, theater, it is an initiatory building.

This project was awarded in student competition and showcased on architectural websites.
