ten centuries of architecture

design of the exposition

A new display of ´Renaissance´ for the exhibition Ten Centuries of Architecture in Belvedere (the Royal Pavillion of Queen Anne). more

At the eastern end of the Royal Garden, almost hidden under ancient trees, is one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings of the Czech Lands - the Summer Pavilion of Queen Anne. As part of the exhibition, the Summer Pavilion also constitutes a vivid textbook of the characteristic features of the Renaissance style. In addition, for the first time after long years of renovation, it will be open in all its entirety to the public. Visitors will have the chance to look into the basement of the Summer Pavilion, where the exposition begins: the entire typological range of the Renaissance will be presented in simple exhibition components, with short texts supplemented by photographs and plans of the major buildings. Upon entering the traditional exhibition spaces on the ground floor of the Summer Pavilion, the visitors will find themselves in a hall devoted to the architecture of the imperial court under Rudolf II, that is, the buildings in the complex of Prague Castle in particular. Another room will include models of the typical buildings of this style from all over the territory of the Czech Republic. Rising to the first floor of the Summer Pavilion, the visitors pass by a model of the Hrádek Tower from Český Krumlov, which introduces the section dedicated to the Renaissance architects. The large hall on the first floor is conceived as a self-contained whole presenting the Ideals of the builders and architects of the Renaissance. In the individual sections, clips of different buildings are projected. A view of the gallery on the ground floor of the Summer Pavilion and of the garden with The Singing Fountain ends the rich excursion. Author of the text: prom. hist. Ivan Prokop Muchka
