The Holešovice Meander is a unique natural phenomenon. Within the Prague basin and the whole of Bohemia. There is no similar space on the entire course of the Vltava River that has been so generously shaped in such a sudden contrast to the deep canyons to the south and north of Prague. The strength of the original landscape image, fundamentally transformed by the regulation of the river bed, is suggested to be recalled by a piece of "intermediate watershed", defined again after years by the dynamic rhythm of the river. We offer a hybrid spatial mosaic of unpredetermined stories, each time experienced a little differently.
