The Rugged Stand by František Skála at Malostranské Square


The Rugged Stand is a structure that is more than six metres tall and includes an actual kiosk offering refreshments and fun in the centre of Prague.

“The Rugged Stand seeks to serve as a meeting point, a centre of unexpected interaction, a place to refresh the visitor both physically and spiritually. It resembles urban kiosks, tobacco stalls and vendors’ stands, but unlike them, it is not an industrialized shop, but an organic hand-made structure. The Rugged Stand brings nature gone wild and architecture gone wild to the tourist plantation of the Lesser Town. Its values are non-pragmatic,” says František Skála about his architectural work.

The public is able to visit the Rugged Stand for the duration of the František Skála Riding School exhibition at the Wallenstein Riding School Gallery until September 3.
