Subject of the competitive dialogue:
The Capital City of Prague together with the Prague Public Transit Company and Správa železnic (Railway Administration) announce Competition Dialogue Procedure for the revitalisation of the Vrchlického sady Park, including the integration of the new tramway line into the area and the reconstruction of the New Terminal Hall of the Prague Main Railway Station (NOH).
The Vrchlického sady Park and the New Terminal Hall of the Main Railway Station form a clear part of the centre of the capital of the Czech Republic from the geographical and significance point of view. However, with regard to the current needs of the functioning of the urban organism in the locality and its wider surroundings, the area concerned fulfils its city-forming role very problematically today.
The aim of the Competition Dialogue Procurement Procedure is therefore to find an architectural, urban, landscaping and transport solution that will focus on the functionality and city-forming role of this extremely important area. At the same time, the aim of the competitive dialogue is to find a comprehensive solution that will turn this part of the city into a place visited not only by passing and transferring passengers, but primarily by the inhabitants of the adjacent urban districts, which are today unnaturally divided by the railway and road infrastructure. It is anticipated that a good-quality design of the site will bring natural attractiveness and security to the site. At the same time, the proposed solution will bring, also with regard to the future management of the area, long-term environmental sustainability within the city.
