Ostrava is not only the third largest Czech city, but also a strategically important place of commerce and industry. Expansion of Ostrava was planned and mandated in a former brown-field zone, recently relaimed and prepared for development. Our approach was based on the fundamental premise of its well-scaled urban block morphology, and, the need for a major public space as a connector between new and old Ostrava.
