URBAN INTERVENTIONS CHILD FRIENDLY CITY continues…
The City District, Prague 3 partnered with our studio last semester with the Child Friendly City initiative. Based on the extensive analysis, numerous specific public spaces with critical deficiencies were identified. This semester we shall focus on the design of these specific squares and streets, to make public space a place where public life thrives. The design of each place shall be developed based on the issues identified in the work of the previous semester plus more detailed study of the existing conditions and imaginative ways of engaging people in public life.
KARLÍN RIVER FRONT DEVELOPMENT: RETRO/PROSPECTIVE
Since November 17, 1989 the Karlin riverfront of Prague has experienced significant private and public investments. There remains extensive additional development potential, extending East from the development to date. The studio project will evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the existing circumstances a develop principles that balance the interests of all effected stakeholders, the public, the investor, the City and the new occupants. Based on these principles, we shall then explore the total re-composition of the development to optimize the benefits to the surrounding community, the developer and the new occupants. These new principles may then be further applied to the future extension of the development.
