Competitive dialogue Nový Hlávák announces the number of participants


Prague, July 20 2022 – The tender procedure with a competitive dialogue to revitalize Vrchlického sady park, new construction of the tramway line Muzeum - Bolzanova and reconstruction of the New Terminal Hall of Prague Main Railway Station attracted 26 architectonic teams from Czechia and from abroad.

On Friday 15 June 2022, the deadline for interested parties to apply for participation in the New Hlavák competitive dialogue expired. A total of 26 architectural studios from the Czech Republic and abroad took advantage of this opportunity. Exclusively Czech participation is represented by 9 competition teams, the rest of the competition teams are represented by foreign teams or mixed teams in the form of Czech - foreign consortia.

"The topic, which is the subject of the "New Hlavák" dialogue competition, is incredibly complex and requires the participation and experience of a multidisciplinary team. We expected that there would be interest in the competitive dialogue not only from domestic participants, but also from abroad. However, the total number of 26 applicants, from 13 countries, exceeded our expectations", explains the guarantor of the assignment part of the competitive dialogue doc. Ing. arch. Jakub Cigler. objasňuje garant části zadání k soutěžnímu dialogu doc. Ing. arch. Jakub Cigler.

The competitive dialogue will gradually move into its next phase. The teams that have registered and demonstrated their qualification to participate in the competitive dialogue will be invited to develop a methodology for approaching the various topics to be addressed in the territory. On the basis of this methodology, the evaluation committee will then select 5 architectural teams to continue the dialogue in September 2022.

"As an substitute member of the evaluation committee, I will also participate in the September meeting and I am already very curious about the final selection. I think that the evaluation committee will have very responsible but at the same time difficult decisions to make. There are a number of great teams of architects among the entries, and I am personally delighted especially with the interesting Czech representation. It will be all the more difficult to select only 5 teams", concludes Jakub Cigler. uzavírá Jakub Cigler.
