On August 23, representatives of the Railway Administration and the Capital City of Prague discussed the future of railways in the Czech Republic and in Prague as part of a round table. The key topics were high-speed lines or the Prague railway hub, which are supposed to bring a new impetus to rail transport, which will be used by many times more people in the future.
In order to find out in detail what Hlavní nádraží means for the public, from May to August 2022 we met with you as part of participatory activities and asked what your relationship is with the territory of the station and what Nový Hlavák should be like. Now we bring you the results of the participation. In total, approximately 800 people took part in the participation process, who formulated the main shortcomings of the current state of the territory and, at the same time, ideas about what the territory should look like in the future and what it should serve.
In the penultimate phase of the Nový Hlavák competition dialogue, representatives of three selected international architectural studios presented their concept of the revitalization of the Vrchlického sady Park, the new construction of the Muzeum – Bolzanova tram line and the modification of the new departure hall of the Main Railway Station in Prague. The presentation of the projects for the members of the evaluation committee was held in a completely unique way in the virtual reality of the Virtuplex hall. Now comes the final stage of finalizing the proposals based on the comments of the evaluation committee and its experts.
The project of renovation of the New Terminal Hall of the Prague Main Railway Station, revitalisation of Vrchlického sady Park in front of it and planned construction of the tram line Muzeum – Bolzanova to the Main station has stepped into its next phase. Three international architectural teams advanced into the final round of the competitive dialogue. The evaluation committee chose them in the first half of December after considering all the architectural concepts.
Five selected architectural teams that advanced to the next round of the competitive dialogue received an invitation of the contracting authorities to scout the area in question. The competing teams got to take in the extended assignment, documentation and surveys. The two day stay in Prague ended with a two-hour presentation and open discussion on October 7. The conceptual backgrounds, packed portfolios, individual presentation of world-renowned architects attracting a wide public to Prague’s CAMP confirmed, that the revitalization of the Prague Main Station and its surroundings is a highly monitored topic.
On the 13th and 14th of September, an expert committee session focusing on the approach methodologies of the registered teams took place. The committee session was a part of the Competitive Dialogue Procurement Procedure for the revitalisation of Vrchlického sady Park, new construction of the tramway line Muzeum – Bolzanova and the reconstruction of the New Terminal Hall of the Prague Main Railway Station. Out of the 26 entries, the committee selected five architectural teams which are advancing to the next phase of the competitive dialogue.
On Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 September, the evaluation committee will meet as a part of the competitive dialogue. The selected judges will evaluate the individual approach methodologies of the teams that have passed the qualification phase. Following the session, five architectural teams will emerge to continue the competitive dialogue. We will keep you informed about the results, and we will gradually unveil teams that made the cut.

V úterý 14. června a ve čtvrtek 16. června proběhly dvě participační setkání, kterých se mohl zúčastnit kdokoli, koho se plánovaná revitalizace týká. Názory a poznatky občanů, kteří v dané lokalitě žijí nebo mají své podnikání, jsou pro tvorbu soutěžního zadání velice důležité – nová úprava má kromě jiného výrazně zlepšit a zpříjemnit každodenní život v této namáhané a specifické oblasti. Proto nás zajímá každý detail, který by na životní podmínky nejen rezidentů mohl mít pozitivní dopad. V úterý 14. června jsme tak s účastníky komentované vycházky prošli celé území, kterého se revitalizace týká. Odborníci z řad zadavatelských organizací představili plánované aktivity a odpovídali na dotazy zúčastněných. Zároveň si pečlivě poznamenávali jednotlivé komentáře a nápady. Ve čtvrtek 16. června jsme se na pracovním workshopu setkali znovu, tentokráte v Historické budově Národního muzea. Nad mapou jsme s účastníky živě diskutovali jednotlivé kroky a témata revitalizace a opět sbírali veškeré podněty. Těší nás, že veřejnost revitalizační záměr jednoznačně vítá a neváhá se do celého procesu zapojit. Děkujeme! O dalších aktivitách, kdy se budete moci zapojit, vás budeme průběžně informovat.
