The abstract brick relief referring to the original former development is part of the newly revitalised Husův park in the Čakovice district of Prague. The wall, titled a Superpower Wall by the author Matěj Hájek, is furnished with a smart nano-coating, which has the capacity to breakdown emissions and thereby clean the surrounding air.
场地曾是Čakovice胡斯革命公园的所在地，历史上是一片临湖的村庄绿地。在捷克斯洛伐克第一共和国时期，这里的湖水被排干，被改造成公园。在当时的施工调整期间，原湖两旁的房屋被拆除。建筑物的屋顶山墙的残垣仍然可见，这种状况一直持续到2019-2020年的重建。公园重建由Land05景观工作室的Martina Forejtová主导。S K U L L工作室受邀参与公园南缘围墙的设计。最终完成了这座雕塑般的建筑纪念碑——一座尺度夸张的，名为"超能力墙"的砖砌浮雕墙。
The site which is now home to the Hussite revolution park in Čakovice was historically the location of a village green with a lake. During the era of the First Czechoslovak Republic, the lake was drained and the area converted into a park. During the construction adjustments of that time, the houses that had lined the original lake were demolished. The remainders of the roof gables of these buildings were still visible until the recent reconstruction that took place in the years 2019-2020. The author of the reconstruction of the park was the landscaping studio Land05, headed by Martina Forejtová. S K U L L studio was invited to take part in the design of the perimeter wall on the southern edge of the park. The outcome is this sculptural-architectural monument – a brick relief, with a degree of hyperbole entitled Superpower Wall.
转变是创作的主题。原来的村庄绿地经改造，山墙屋顶的轮廓仍然刻在公园的围墙上。这些对角线的装饰、时间的写生，是砖墙当前形式的基础，即浮雕，其中砖结构的砌筑技术被用于实用性的围墙。"这是对不再存在的东西的纪念，它仍然在某时的此地上留下过痕迹，"“超能力墙”的创作者，来自S K U L L工作室的雕塑家Matěj Hájek如是说。
The theme of transformation is a fundamental idea of the realisation. After the conversion of the original village green, the contours of the gabled roofs remained inscribed in the perimeter walls of the park. The motif of these diagonal lines, sketches of time, is the basis for the current form of the brick wall – relief, where classic technology of the brick structure is taken to the very edge of practicability. “It’s a memento of what is no longer here, which nevertheless leaves its imprint on the place and time,” describes the author of Superpower Wall, the sculptor Matěj Hájek from S K U L L studio.
In contrast with the traditional construction material, the wall is furnished with a nano-technological transparent coating, which thanks to its photocatalytic properties (without chemicals and waste substances) cleans the surrounding air. The surface of the wall is impregnated with titanium dioxide, which together with UV radiation is capable of liquidating up to several kilograms of harmful substances per year on a surface of 1 m2. The unique technology was developed by Czech scientists from the J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry.
“The invisible plays a dual role here. On one hand there’s the nano-technological coating which depends on sunlight in order to function, and on the other is memory, fragments of recollections that exist only in our imagination. What is essential is not what we see, but precisely that which escapes our vision,” adds Hájek.
The brick relief wall is complemented in close proximity by a water feature designed by the XTOPIX studio, the dark surface of which is reminiscent in its colour of the bed of the former lake.
