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.

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.
