Situated on the grounds of Prague Castle, this projects seeks to create a link to the disused park space at the bottom of the castle's sheer northern wall. The Institute incorporates various program, including a museum of Czech avant-garde photography, located on the castle commons, seminar spaces, workshops, archives, a cafe, and short term housing. The program is arranged in prismatic volumes cascading down the castle wall, which are wrapped in a ribbon-like scrim, creating a constantly variable and at times ambiguous spatial experience. THe effect is one of movement, and the conflict between containment and slippage.
