Compact City - or what new is able to yet be done in Brno among railway stations

By Magdaléna Burešová


Urban architectural study of a new part of Brno between the contemporary and the future main train station aims to create an urban space that would respect the basic principles of well-functioning living cities. The solution presented here includes the polyfunctional constructed space of a city, where the basic unit is a city "block", treated here in the extent typical for this type of study. The design utilizes two main levels. The natural terrain and the historically given level of +6m. In the latter level we encounter the pedestrian routes and the related half-private and half-public areas. Within the whole area there are allocated several "crystallized cores", i.e. the strategic focal points which are important for the whole city and hence represent suitable positions for public buildings. Closer attention is paid to the area neighbouring with the new train station, which touches upon the bank of the river Svratka
