Max Berg’s Days of Architecture – the Discovery Center of the Centennial Hall project realised in cooperation with the Faculty of Architecture of Wroc³aw University of Science and Technology

   The article presents assumptions and realization of a large educational and cultural project the “Max Berg’s Days of Architecture”, conducted by the Discovery Center of Centennial Hall in cooperation with the Faculty of Architecture of Wroc³aw University of Science and Technology from March to June 2016. The project included the so-called Max Berg’s Architecture Laboratory – a special workshop, where a team of 60 students of architecture and landscaping, together with staff of the Discovery Center and lecturers from the Faculty of Architecture, worked on organization of the main event. On June 4th 2016, the Centennial Hall in Wroc³aw saw the main cultural event – the construction and artistic action of “Rise the city of our dreams!”. The event was based on the idea of a scenario-based game, which incorporated elements of architectural and urbanistic knowledge. On the day of the event, over 2000 m2 of the Centennial Hall floor turned into a gigantic city plan inspired with Max Berg’s designs and developed by the students of architecture. The project embodied Max Berg’s idea, to turn the Centennial Hall into a “cathedral of democracy”, housing people of various ages, who worked together to create a gigantic model of the ideal town. The project was highly educational both for the participants of the game, and for the students-organizers.

Key words: city, cultural event, Centennial Hall, Max Berg
