Let's include the natural beauty of the Beskids and the rich cultural heritage of the region in our project. We will focus on sustainability, accessibility and a holistic learning experience.
1. Location and environment
The park and museum will be ideally located in a picturesque area providing a panoramic view of the Beskid Mountains, without disturbing the natural ecosystem. We will use natural building materials and green architecture practices to minimize environmental impact. The use of solar energy, rainwater harvesting and other sustainable technologies will also be considered.
2. Park design
Walking and cycling paths:
The park will have both well-paved and natural dirt paths, so it will be able to meet the needs of all users. The paths will wind through a variety of landscapes, from meadows to forests, allowing visitors to appreciate the region's diverse flora and fauna.
We will include several open green areas for picnics, games and gatherings. The children's playground will be equipped with equipment inspired by the crafts and design elements of the region.
Along the trails, visitors will find outdoor art installations showcasing traditional and modern designs from the region. These installations could also include interactive elements that help educate about the craft and its processes.
This space can host craft shows, workshops, concerts and other cultural events.
The museum will host a variety of exhibitions showcasing traditional and contemporary crafts and designs. Rotating galleries can present thematic exhibitions, traveling exhibitions and works by emerging artists.
To engage visitors, especially young ones, there should be interactive stations where they can try their hand at various crafts under the supervision of experts.
A unique feature may be a Craftsman-in-Residence program, in which a local artist or craftsman conducts live demonstrations of their work and interacts with visitors.
Visitors could participate in workshops and activities, learning new skills and creating their own crafts.
Cafe and souvenir shop:
The museum should have a cafe offering local food and drinks. A gift shop may sell craft items and designs produced by local artisans, encouraging support for the local craft economy.
To make the park and museum accessible to all, we will include wheelchair-friendly paths, ramps, tactile signage for the visually impaired and induction loop systems for the hearing impaired. The museum should have materials available in Braille and guided tours in sign language.
The park and museum would offer a variety of programming options, including craft and design workshops, nature walks, outdoor films and concerts, community events and school programs.
This is just a basic outline of the project. Specific features would depend on available land, budget, local crafts and traditions, and other factors. The planning and design process should include input from local artists, craftsmen and community members to ensure that the park and museum truly reflect and serve the local community.
