Traditional houses in Praden and Tschiertschen
Exhibition in the Old Schoolhouse Tschiertschen

Dark brown wooden buildings characterize the village of Praden and Tschiertschen and are part of the cultural landscape in the Schanfigg. Who built the houses and what influenced the construction? What did it look and look like inside? Many knitted buildings are well preserved and testify to the great craftsmanship of the local builders and their attention to detail. From the 17th to the 20th century, the traditional construction method has changed only slightly. Characteristic features of the old houses are small windows, arcades with sawn-out railings, facades with carved decorations and decorative house sayings with ornaments.
The exhibition complements the book "Prader Hausgeschichte(n)" by Ruth Strassmann and Susanne Müller, which was published in summer 2020. It also takes examples of Tschiertscher houses and presents vivid documentation material such as components and tools as well as a model of the construction method. Other topics are the typical house decoration and a look into the furnishing of the living rooms. It is about the appreciation of our cultural heritage and also about the question of how we deal with the old building fabric when adapting to the modern way of life. How do conversions and new buildings fit into the townscape? Which elements make a village unique and are also attractive for tourism? Pictures on the development of the architectural style are intended to stimulate discussion.
