08 PRAGUE ON TRACK

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

A 22,000-square me­tre brown­field site ad­ja­cent to Prague’s Masaryk Rail­way Sta­tion is to be re­gen­er­ated into a new cen­tral business dis­trict thanks to plans de­vel­oped by Zaha Hadid Ar­chi­tects with lo­cal Czech part­ners. The project, around one kilo­me­tre from the city’s cen­tral square, in­te­grates sub­ur­ban and do­mes­tic rail ser­vices with a coach and bus ter­mi­nus, and cre­ates a se­quence of build­ings of­fer­ing some 90,000 square me­tres of mixed-use of­fices, re­tail fa­cil­i­ties and pub­lic spa­ces. The first phase of con­struc­tion work is due to be com­pleted in 2020, with the en­tire project sched­uled for sign-off in 2022.
