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

By Milan Šuška


The diploma thesis reacts on the upcoming urban plan for Brno-Jižní centrum. It creates a piece of a real city with some traditional urban spaces and vertically mixed functions. The theory of the creation of the new town quarter is strongly influenced by the reconstruction of Brno railway junction and by the requirement of the incorporation of the city high speed rail connected with Brno region. In the transport concept a new railway tracing is designed enabling to bring all regional trains to the present junction point – Brno main station. This solution will improve a public transport in the city. Moving the route from the Boulevard will make possible an unlimited connection between historical centre and new Jižní centrum. In the design the emphasis is put on a maximal habitability of the area together with application of semi-public residential courts known as “hofjes.” The new public spaces are based on composition principles, optical connection to the historical heart of the city and on linking of urban structures that provide a smart pedestrian connection between the future main railway station and the historical city centre
