Bernabe Labanc Architecture Urbanism (BLAU) has received fourth place out of 58 entries in the international urban planning competition for The Future of Brno-Center, in Brno, Czech Republic.

The competition sought out designs to integrate a transport hub into the cityscape of Brno, as well as integrate a design for the undeveloped southern area of the city.

BLAU’s proposal centers on the ideas of flexibility and sustainability, so as to adapt to the changing needs of the city. In the design, the city is organized into several urban stripes, each of which functions as a self-sufficient micro city.

The train station, Brno Transport Hub, is designed as an active urban mixed use node that coordinates mobility and public life in a continuous shared space around different interlinked terminals. The site neighbors a central spine that connects the new area with the historical center to offer a cultural, research, and sports corridor for the city.
