Prague Activators Proposal / Juras Lasovsky, Zuzana Masna, Koen Hezemans

Designed by the collaboration of Juras Lasovsky, Zuzana Masna, and Koen Hezemans, their project "Prague Activators" suggests the idea of pontoons floating on the river. The pontoons "activate" the Vltava riverbank as well as various parts of the city of Prague. The proposal was originally awarded at the Skanska Bridging Prague Competition and was later elaborated into the current project Prague Activators. The project aims to motivate people not only to pursue activities on the riverside, but also to inspire them to care for the public space and alter it.

Town Hall Sports Center Winning Proposal / Atelier 8000

The first prize winning design of the town hall sports center of Ceske Budejovice by Atelier 8000 is based on the existing town planning concept which dates back to the past and which has been proven by time. The project will offer premises for a variable range of activities, both for nearby schools and for sports concentrated in other sports centers in the proximity. The center is – and will be even more so in the future – a significant entrance “gate” for visitors to the town´s historical center. More images and architects’ description after the break.

TRH Market Stalls / Edit!

With locally grown and organic food becoming more popular in the Czech Republic, EDIT! was asked to design a market stall for a new concept of Green Markets. Through a reconfiguration of the typical retailing method, the architects create a unique response to the importance of enabling a personal interaction between the farmers and market visitors. From this, the farmer can relate to the visitors through their produce, and the relationships formed may contribute to the character of the market as a whole.

'Urban Sponge' Competition Entry / Gemawang Swaribathoro + Indra Nugraha + Morian Saspriatnadi

Designed by Gemawang Swaribathoro, Indra Nugraha, and Morian Saspriatnadi, their ‘Urban Sponge’ concept aims to unify, organize and manage, in one solution, the inner power of this marvelous city. Prague, an ancient city that has a long history of its own architecture style is no longer an underdog city in the European region. With the city becoming one of the most important places in this continent, the sponge concept can be described as a tool of connectivity to absorb the quality of life, to attract people, to make a better living.

'Week in Self' Installation / Mjölk architekti

Designed by Mjölk Architekti, a high seat was installed on the main square in České Budějovice where it stayed for a month. It is situated high up so that it does not interfere with everyday life on the ground and offers sufficient privacy to its occupants. Over the month of the exhibition, this space with a floor area of 6.25 m2 hosted several inspiring personalities, the so-called “urban hunters”. They are the masters of their time and space. All the necessities needed for comfortable living are provided. More images and architects’ description after the break.
