The exhibition will be shown in the centrally located Galerie Jaroslava Fragnera, as part of of the reSITE Urban Festival, from 20 June until 1 September.
The exhibition is continuing along its route through Europe. After its sojourn in France, in Toulouse, Paris and Lyon, it has now moved on to the Czech Republic, where it will be shown from 20 June until 1 September in the Galerie Jaroslava Fragnera in Prague, as part of the reSITE Urban Festival and with the title “In Favour of Public Space”. The gallery, property of the Czech Architecture Foundation, has always specialised in exhibitions of architecture and the applied arts. Indeed, it is one of the very few exhibition venues in the entire Czech Republic that has steadily focused on architecture, in both its historical and contemporary aspects. It was opened in the 1950s in the Bethlehem Chapel, a beautiful fourteenth-century building in the Old City, just over three hundred metres from the famous Charles Bridge.
The opening of the exhibition was attended by:
- Tomáš Hudecek, First Deputy Mayour of Prague.
- Osamu Okamura, director of the program of reSITE Urban Festival.
- Dan Merta, director of Galerie Jaroslava Fragnera.
- Judit Carrera, director of the Prize.
Before the opening, a debate was held by Judit Carrera and Janez Kozelj, Deputy Mayor of Ljubljana and developer of the renovation of the banks of the river Ljubljanica, one of the awarded interventions in the latest edition of the Prize. The debate was moderated by Filip Šenk, theorist and historian of architecture.
