Bubny Master Plan

Prague, Czech Republic
Asymptote's masterplan fora new business and recreational area in Prague is situated on what was formerly the main railway station 'Bubny' located in the centre of Prague.
About the Project
A new master plan for a 50-hectare former railyard in central Prague, as envisioned by Asymptote, reconciles Prague's historic city center with a new residential and commercial development. The master plan strategy emphasizing tree-lined streets, public parks, promenades, and pavilions, in addition to numerous new buildings, creates a highly differentiated and vital green urbanism within the center of Prague.
Context and Infrastructure
Two essential aspects of the plan are the extension of the surrounding streets to connect to and pass through the site and the introduction of a new "central park" as the primary public space of the master plan. The continuity of the urban infrastructure across the site enables direct vehicular and pedestrian connections with the adjacent neighborhoods contributing to a thriving urbanism.
Urban Integration
The new Prague Central Park is an active public open space inspired by other great urban parks, such as Hyde Park in London and New York. Here the park functions to organize the adjacent building sites and provide a connection to the historic city center. With various landscaped areas, sports fields, restaurants, cafes, and a performing arts center that fronts directly onto the park, this vast new public green space is a cultural and recreational amenity for Prague.
