PRAGUE EYES – riverfront revitalisation, Prague

The project started in 2009 when we co-initiated a program activation of the deserted Prague riverfront area. Gradually we have achieved cultural and social revival, and subsequently, architectural rehabilitation. The completed first phase is Prague\’s largest post-revolutionary investment in public space, the first with such sociocultural impact. It focused on the reconstruction of 20 vaults in the riverside wall (originally storage areas). The vaults allow maximum contact with the river. The vaults will serve as cafes, workshops, galleries and public toilets. There are 6 vaults accessible by elliptical pivoting windows made of organic glass that are probably the largest in the world.
