Design Challenge:

The subject of the competition is the preparation of a conceptual architectural and urbanistic design for the revitalisation of Lesser Town Square.
The goal of the square’s revitalisation is to create a public open space of a representative and rest- ful character commensurate with its significance as one of Prague’s most important squares, which must include parking at a level in accordance with this character.

The goal of the conceptual architecture competiti- on is to define the potential of the public space of the square.

The reduction of traffic should be considered with a reduction in the number of parking spaces in stages. In the case of a fundamental reduction of parking spaces, it is desirable for the contenders to propose at the conceptual level the possibility of relocating parking spaces to connecting localities.
