Florenc is a public transport hub as well as an old railway brownfield in the centre of Prague. Its name refers back to the 14th century when artisans from Italian Florence invited by Emperor Charles IV. settled here.
The objective of the international urban design competition is to find a viable proposal for a new mixed-use neighbourhood with new homes and spaces for Prague’s booming advanced producer services sectors as well as places for leisure, cafés and restaurants.
High quality public spaces should be the backbone of new Florenc with liveable streets and plazas creating new links between Prague’s Nové Město and the trendy Karlín District.
The Competition is organized as a cooperation of the City of Prague and Prague Institute of Planning and Development, Masaryk Station Development a joint venture of Penta Real Estate and Czech Railways and ČSAD Praha Holding a private operator of Prague’s central couch terminal.
The purpose of this urban design competition is to identify and reward an integrated proposal for the competition area. The winner shall present a comprehensive, economically feasible, environmentally sustainable and socially equitable regeneration vision that will encourage key stakeholders for its implement.
The competition area consists of the competition site itself (red zone) and the adjacent interactive zone (green) and the indicative zone (blue).
The winner of the competition shall be subsequently commissioned to develop the design further into a master plan with design code elements for the competition site (red zone) that will serve as a basis for proposed changes of Prague’s Zoning Plan and will guide the regeneration process of the site.
Proposals in the interactive and indicative zones (green and blue) will present a portfolio of ideas as a basis for coordinated development and decision-making by the city government.
In the following phases, Masaryk Station Development will consider inviting competition participants when selecting architects for individual projects in the area.
