A festival that shows you Brno as you’ve never seen it and always wanted to! The second Open House in Brno!
Thanks to all of you who opened the city of Brno. Even with unfavourable weather, we had 20,000 visitors, which means 20,000 thanks! Over the 2 days of Open House Brno 2019, we met at 70 locations and enjoyed more than 500 hours of visits. We opened to you for free ordinarily inaccessible places and showed you familiar things in a new way. There were 85 volunteers taking care of you.
We looked over Brno from on high and went down into the bowels of buildings. We entered villas, parks, theatres, palaces, hotels, offices, a chateau, the sewage plant, the incineration plant, the brewery, the Museum of Anatomy, and the courthouse. We visited engineering, residential, industrial, municipal, health care, tourist, cultural, and sport buildings. Welcome additions to the festival included walks based around Brno statues and musical stories, a program for kids, and guided walks for English speakers.
Open House Brno 2019 received a personal visit from Victoria Thornton, the founder of Open House Worldwide, the largest architectural event in the world. Our three valued ambassadors were Mendel University in Brno Rector prof. Ing. Danuše Nerudová, Ph.D.; important Czech painter and educator prof. MgA. Petr Kvíčala; and Ing. arch. Ondřej Chybík MAS ETH, winner of the Grand Prix of the Society of Czech Architects and cofounder of the successful studio Chybik + Kristof Architects & Urban Designers.
