reconstruction of a public space in the front of Gallery of Fine Arts in Ostrava
From a broader perspective, the area is a borderline between the densely urbanized inner city and the less urbanized park, dominated by the House of Arts built in 1926 in the purist style. From a closer perspective, Umělecká street is the focal point connecting Nádražní avenue with the surroundings of the House of Arts. Umělecká street, once a classic transit street, is proposed to be a square.
The proposal seeks how to strengthen the role of the public space (square) by equipping it with solid furnishings and greenery. It is united with other two characteristic spaces - a tram stop, and a gallery front yard.
The surface in the middle is paved with a red granite cubes.
