Are you interested in the future development of Prague? Come to CAMP!

On Tuesday, March 6th, the Center for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning (CAMP) re-opened the window to the future of development. It will present over 60 projects that could change the face of Prague. The exhibition will showcase transportation construction projects, modern architecture and public buildings. Many of the projects have not yet been available for the public to see. The exhibition has a packed program of accompanying events, starting with a themed lecture on the construction of Metro Line D.

The Prague Tomorrow? exhibition presents several dozen projects that could significantly alter the face of Prague. These are projects of various scales, different purposes and in various stages of preparation. From the initial ideas, through to plans in the advanced stage of preparation to projects that are being completed today. The new cycle will include previously unpublished visualizations of the Smíchov distillery, the reconstruction of the former MEOPTA factory in Prague's Cibulky, or the latest visualizations of the Modřany sugar refinery and Nusle brewery.

“The public will be seeing many of the projects at the exhibition for the first time. I am very glad that we managed to create a place at CAMP where people come to find the answer to the question of how Prague will develop,”, says Adriana Krnáčová, mayor of Prague.

In addition to private projects, the exhibition will also present important public investments such as the construction of Metro D, the reconstruction of Malostranské Náměstí(Lesser Town Square), new entrances to the Exhibition Grounds in Holešovice and the renovation of the Šlechtovka Restaurant.

“The continuation of the exhibition is the next step in creating a database of all construction projects in Prague that will be accessible physically at CAMP and virtually, online. This way, people will have a complete overview of what is planned in the city,” says Deputy Mayor of Prague, Petra Kolinska.
Guided tours, which were very popular in the past, will be supplemented with themed evenings. These will focus on individual projects or their benefits for Prague.
The exhibition will include a documentary video entitled Places That Await, offering a non-traditional view of the locations undergoing transformation in Prague. IPR has calculated the area of these places to be an unbelievable 1,466 hectares, whereas the most important and largest of these places have an area of up to 234 ha. That is the equivalent of 50 Wenceslas Squares. To be able to successfully develop these “no man’s lands”, we must first get to know their current states.

 “We pay special attention to localities that go unused today. I have in mind the restoration of nature on the banks of the Vltava river around Císařsky ostrov, or plans for the emergence of the city districts at former railway stations,” says Ondřej Boháč, director of IPR Prague.

 

The exhibition opened March 6th, and continues until May 4th, 2018.  

The exhibition is open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., except Mondays, and admission is free.
