International Urban Transport Architectural Two-Phase Restricted CompetitionThe 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.More:
