Changes in Rural Architecture in Bohemia
in the 19th and 20th Century in Bohemia
The exhibition records the development up to now and the present state of rural architecture in today´s regions that are largely located on the territory of Bohemia. It continues the previous exhibitions, dedicated to the same topic in Moravia and Silesia, which also emphasized the 19th and 20th centuries.
It provides the opportunity to look at today's rural architecture from a different, less common angle. Even at first glance ordinary houses can be be of historical and monumental value, as well as a village urban complex.
Experts from the Department of Topography of the Institute of Art History, Academy of Sciences of the CR, in cooperation with those from the Department of Geomatics, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague, try to reveal these values often hidden over time.
Based on historical sources and literature, historical and digital development maps as well as photogrammetric survey of selected objects, the display shows the transformation of the development of individual selected villages in Bohemia in the past two centuries. The exhibition is accompanied by photographs by Jitka Walterová.
It has been realized with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic (NAKI II).
