extension of the city centre - competition

An open-handed open urbanistic-architectural competition had to give a principal impulse to the area close to Masarykovo náměstí (square). A cultural cluster; a mix of functions; the use of the potential of the river, and the nearby Nová Karolina compound – clear reasons for us to participate in the international brainstorming event. more

a city for pedestrians and cyclers a condensed urban structure permeated by a lively park linked to the river the density and intensity pleasant for walkers; repulsion of unbridledness and looseness for cars heterogeneously defined spaces the magnetism of cultural and municipal institutions used to revitalise public areas the new structure linked to the natural lines of pedestrian paths in the old centre a bottega as a link between the city and the park (… walk up the square and roll down to the river) a new tram line serving Masarykovo náměstí the elimination of automobile traffic and making the passage through the city more difficult the abolition of roads – a continuous walkway allowing only exceptional traffic kerbs replaced by bollards, tram rails cast in walkways the cancelling of the nature of the river as a barrier the altering of contrasting characters of the riverbank landscaping the openness of the part to the river by partial excavation of the terrain edge housing beyond the river with views to the park the concentration of schools into one campus – a world of its own linked to the park and the river the accessibility and openness of some parts while preserving the privacy of a school the roughly estimated investment costs CZK 6.6 billion Do you want to come by car? OK! You can easily park your car in a car park on the outskirts and walk!
