Brno selects winner of its international competition for the smart district of Špitálka

17 April 2019

Our fellow city of Brno has awarded a winner in its International Open Urban Design Idea Competition. Participation was record-breaking, with designs arriving even from Japan and Singapore.

The jury evaluated a total of twenty-six proposals from the Czech Republic, but also from Slovakia, Serbia, Poland, Belgium, Lithuania, United Kingdom, Japan and Singapore. The winner of the competition was a design submitted by the Prague-based studio Aulík Fišer architekti.

“The competition was very well prepared and fulfilled its goal of bringing a solution to the transformation of an unused part of the industrial compound of the heating plant, where a lively urban neighbourhood should arise. It is one of the first steps towards revitalisation of the broader area around Špitálka, Křenová and Cejl streets, and at the same time an example of how to use other brownfield sites in the city centre,” said Markéta Vaňková, Lady Mayor of the City of Brno.
