Martin Rajniš is a Czech architect based in Prague. Alongside David Kubík and Tomáš Kosnar he conducts the office of HAMR, a collective of people actively seeking new solutions to architecture, urbanism and design. The office designs and constructs unique buildings in the Czech Republic as well as across the world.

We are a small, but in terms of output a very productive office. The name, Architecture Guild, is inspired by the medieval mines and guilds that have built some of the most prominent buildings of their era. And we really do mean it – in terms of the name as well as the architecture. For us, architecture is a mystical journey through life.

We try our hardest to design buildings that stand in harmony with nature, in such way that is pleasing to anyone. That is very much fundamental to for us, this is what we call „Natural Architecture“. Recently, it seems that what we do has a strong impact not only in the Bohemian region, but also across the world.  What we are exhibiting here in Logrono are photographs and sketches of buildings from the recent years. Our latest hit is The Ester Tower in the centre of Jerusalem in Israel which has become so popular that even the mayor of one of Prague’s city quarters insists that we also build Ester’s sister in our homeland. Given the fact that we build mostly out of wood, we can state that our buildings are very much connected to nature, even more so as they are easy to assemble, without any greater interventions, using natural materials (wood, stone and glass) which, even at the point of deterioration, are in harmony with the environment.

A crucial part of our work are hand drawn sketches. We find that the sequence paper – pencil – hand is the shortest thought trajectory to capture the flow of thousands of the smallest, indescribable but extremely important nuances that take place in the brain. These then shape architecture to have the right amount of strength and lyricism, which is exactly what transforms ordinary buildings into art.
