entrance building to the Slavic settlement arcpole
Authors: Jan Zelinka, Pavlína Harazimová
The inspiration for the design idea is the layers (levels) that are uncovered and subsequently recognized during archaeological research. Just as information is gathered from the excavations, so similarly the philosophy of the entrance to the site is intended to lead people through the levels in an attractive pathway offering information and a change of environment.
The entrance object is navigated not horizontally, as is common practice, but vertically. Through the four-storey entrance building, the path to the acropolis follows a vertical axis formed by an elevator core surrounded by a staircase. This space has the potential to present a natural history exhibition and a historical and archaeological exhibition with the presentation of archaeological finds. Individual spaces of different functions and atmospheres are connected to this axis. The volumetric layers of the building are played out in a defined space above the grid, which sets the rhythm and articulation of the structure. The different layers are also supported by the different materials on the façade (stone, plaster, wood, glass).
