Between historical downtown and periphery

By Jana Likavčanová


This article documents the space between historical downtown and periphery. Rampart was situated here from the 13rd century to the begining of the 19th century that were developed and expanded. Rampart was demolished after this period and Brno’s ring boulevard was created in this place like in Vienna. Brno’s ring boulevard was designed as a promenade with parks and important buildings. Nowadays are discovered the fragments of the original rampart as a proof of it’s history. Brno’s ring boulevard is arterial road so many of it’s parts aren’t used by pedestrians and looks like abandoned. It divides the historical downtown and periphery as the rampart instead to conects them in one organism. This sitiuaton invite us to devote Brno’s ring boulevard in our projects. Last year was international workshop in Fakulty of architecture in Brno university of technology. Also some students of this university in their project solved problems of the Brno’s ring boulevard in their projects in winter semester 2013-2014
