Prague, Vinoř

Inner urban spaces and the open landscape

winter 2020 scale: medium

a / New Square

Today, Vinoř is a city district without a clear center, without a square. Vinoř is, according to the housing development, a suburban village with the original village houses of the historic core, extensive development of family houses and suburban villas and a quality natural landscape formed by the Vinořská obora and the Ctěnický grove. Vinoř is located on the northeastern edge of Prague in rugged terrain near the Vinořský creek. It has the character of a quiet rural settlement in an agricultural landscape with quality natural background of Vinořská obora and Ctěnický grove. Lack of a clear center is perceived by residents as a handicap. The management of the city district nominated the still undeveloped space near the shopping center and the church educational center, sports center and school to create the square. The design will include a spatial and functional solution and setting of volume parameters for the proposed buildings. (If they are part of the design). The city is willing to evaluate the best student designs, ideally in the form of a competition between different studios. The assignment includes a 1:250 scale model.

b / New columbarium and anteroom of the existing cemetery

The design of the columbarium assumes the use of empty space at the entrance to the cemetery. The design will also include a reflection on the front space, which is neither functionally nor aesthetically pleasing.

c / In front of the church

Revitalization of a small park in front of the church entrance.

d / Permeable landscape

The assignment will include an analysis of the road network and a proposal for the landscape permeability, including an evaluation of the historical context. An important pilgrimage route Via Sancta runs through the territory of Vinoř, which is accompanied by elements of small-size architecture. How to build on its former meaning in the current context?
