The subject of the Competition is the design of the new Brno main train station, including roofing and platform design, interior layout design, location of the main passenger hall, facade of railway buildings, appearance of the railway body, design of bridge structures and related public spaces in the detail level of an urban-transport-architectural study.

Part of the design is also to find the optimal location and appearance of the bus station, public transport transfer terminal, parking lots, taxi service stations and bicycle storage. The proposal must take into account both their connection to the urban transport network and their interconnections, especially with regard to the quality of pedestrian movement and pedestrian access through the railway body and, last but not least, the links to the urban structure of the new district.

The design also includes a complete solution of the station forecourt and the area behind the station, including buildings according to the construction programme.

Seeing as it is a place located on the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T), the construction will, with its significance and purpose, significantly exceed the city borders and it will also be an important transport terminal for all types of public transport. This important public building will become not only the new entrance gate to the city of Brno, but also the Centre of a new district south of the historic city centre.

The objective of the Competition is to find a comprehensive solution for a transport hub that will be comfortable for passengers, become part of the city’s urban structure and image, and at the same time offer an attractive and public space in its vicinity.
