cooperation: Jitka Melichaříková


Design of new pedestrian zone at Avenue Třída Míru in the centre of Pardubice, including nearby space of Náměstí Republiky square.

The design enclosed the space of the avenue with a vertical building, moved individual traffic from the square into a tunnel and kept public traffic at the pedestrian zone.

The design was chosen for further development as the best of the competition (first prize was not given). In 2007 the study was finished (incorporating city of Pardubice demands). Next stages of the project (with more changes) were designed by Atelier Walter and Code s.r.o. Currently]under construction, proposed finish in 2/2015.
