The project will coordinate with the transformation of the former industrial sites into a new neighborhood.
A new bridge will be built between the former sites of weapons manufacturer Zbrojovka and Zetor motor works in Brno at a cost of CZK 220 million. Its form was designed by the British studio William Matthews Associates. The design was selected by an expert jury in an architectural competition, the results were approved this week at a Brno city council meeting.
The exhibition, opened from 22. 3. to 9. 4. at the House of the Lords of Kunštát, presents the results of an open landscape architecture competition for transforming the House of Arts’s surroundings, announced by the Brno City Chief Architect’s Office on 9 September 2022. On display are all seven proposals considered by the jury of experts on 15 and 16 December 2022.
What have they already managed to change and plan? What are the projects, events and visions offered by the City Chief Architect’s Office? Come and find yourselves in the middle of the action, inside the clouds of perceptions of the daily work on the development and transformation of the city of Brno. Surrounded by large-format sheets of paper undulating in space along with your movement. The city is not a machine, but a living organism that is constantly evolving together with its inhabitants. Just like in reality, the exhibition will offer diverse views and perceptions from different angles. This will take place right in the Procházka Hall of the House of Arts, with a view of the everyday street bustle.
William Matthews Associates has won an open international competition for the design of an £7.5 million new road and pedestrian bridge over the River Svitava in Brno, in the Czech Republic. The competition was organised by the Brno City Chief Architect‘s Office and is the latest in a series of competitions launched in recent months to regenerate brownfield sites across the city.
