Havel & Partners has helped Sprava Zeleznic organize an international architectural competition to design the first Czech high-speed railway terminal.
According to Havel & Partners, “the aim of the competition was to select an architectural and urbanistic design for the future construction of the new railway terminal Prague East, which will form a part of the first ever high-speed railway line in the Czech Republic and which is to become an important transfer hub on the line between Prague and Brno and Prague and Hradec Kralove.”
Havel & Partners reported that the winning design -- one of 21 submitted -- was selected by a professional jury of architects and representatives of Sprava Zeleznic and the municipality of Nehvizdy, where the project will be implemented. According to the firm, “the winning design was submitted jointly by MP + ov Nehvizdy 2020 … [and] the authors of the winning design are high-profile architects Jiri Opocensky and Stepan Valouch from the ov-a studio (holders of the 2020 Czech Architecture Award) and Petr Malinovsky and Petr Vyskocil from METROPROJEKT Praha.”
