The scenario matrix
The overall output of our entry research work which is briefly described further is the “New Atlas of Czech Republic” as a part of the global world. Particular maps display integration of Czech territory to the global system of communication and exchange.
Our proposal for a Czech and Slovak Pavillion for X. Biennale of Architecture in Venice is based on matrix: Meta –city (CZ)4 in which it is possible (keeping particular conditions) to embody any project which works somehow  with basic infrastructure, supports urban structure and makes it denser, more complex and living.
We suppose that the matrix will be saturated first of all with student projects because nowadays “real” projects do not bargain for such a view of a global city „superstructure”. It is not even possible in the Czech Republic at the moment and if any projects like this appear they are concerned with true research work which will be only gradually achieved and exercised in practice even though it is more than desirable.
Our proposal which is elaborated in collaboration of two “different” schools of architecture is a kind of exhibition platform, which will continuously develop and supply itself. Platform for one, two or even more architectural design studios,  platform which operates as an “open source” for other projects related to the topic. Open source which contains within itself the future possibility of development until the final specification (setting) of works at the exhibition for Czech and Slovak Pavillion for X. Biennale of Architecture in Venice from processing to the installation in Fall 2006.
