It doesn't belong, which is precisely why it was designed the way it was. The unique Airship is built onto the roof of the DOX Centre so after touring the gallery you can continue to ascend storeys of imagination.
The project's author is internationally renowned architect Martin Rajniš, recipient of the Global Prize for Sustainable Architecture, among others. During its designed, he was was inspired by the shapes of the huge airships that started criss-crossing the skies at the beginning of the twentieth century. Design work on this 42-metre long and 10-metre wide structure began in 2013, and for the next two years he worked on it with experts in wooden structures and steel. This organically shaped architectural intervention now presents a daring contrast to the industrial architecture of the DOX Centre, upon which it landed with great fanfare. Or is it about to take off?
The Gulliver Airship has already received several awards from the architecture community. In 2016 it was declared Public Interior of the Year, a year later was named Building of the Year 2017 by the Czech Chamber of Authorized Engineers and Technicians, that same year it came in first on the 24th Grand Prix of Architects in the design category, and in 2018 it received the the Wooden Interior of the Year award from the Wood for Life Foundation.
