Ivo Pavlíka Architekt

kříž brána / cross gate Dukovany

The idea is to return a cross back to the landscape, to the place where it had always been. The cross is part of the gate which carries its own meaning and new symbolic - it’s an imaginary border between life and death. It’s a place behind which it’s possible to get dispersed, in the east-west direction. To walk through the gate means to get “to the other side“ where we can contemplate.. It’s possible to get dispersed in the landscape. It’s not a small dispersive meadow, but, first of all, an act of the walk-through.... It’s not possible to see over the gate due to a tree. The gate is related to a cemetery, it’s connected to a path from the cemetery which has always existed there. But there is no path behind the gate?......
