Disable mod_rewrite in folder

I have some mod_rewrite in a htaccess file to make pretty urls, but I would like to disable the function for a subfolder - how can I do that?

I have tried the following, but it doesn't change anything :(
# Exclude mod_rewrite for WP
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/wordpress

# Rewrite for pretty url
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9\-_/]+)$ /index.php?url=$1 [QSA]

The most foolproof way to do it would be to bypass the drupal mod_rewrite directives for those directories. For example to bypass the rules for the subdirectory "/no_rewrite/mystuff/dir1/" you would add the code:

RewriteRule ^no_rewrite/mystuff/dir1 - [L]
