Situation: Architect Markéta Zdebská was a co-founder of the project "Pianos in the street". From
22.July 2013 till April 2014 she and other members of her atelier brought a great contribution
to it by communicating, organizing and coordinating all the necessary issues.
She administered preparations for this project. Michal Měřička transported the pianos und Vít
Horažďovský tuned them. Markéta supported Lucie Kmentová with PR activities.
She set up together with Ondřej Kobza a new project, which spreads joy throughout the
“We would like to contribute to the social activities of the public in the daily life and we believe
that these delicate elements can help to show the people what is possible. In our opinion the
Pianos can boost their imagination and inspire them. Our aim is just to bring them to pay
more attention to the space around them.
What makes fun in the team work is the fact that it goes beyond the abilities of an individual.
The initial idea is actually like a little seed which sprouts only in the good conditions… and
someone has to look after it and watch that nobody treads on it until it is strong enough. This
process is called realization.“
