Pardubice (CZ)

client: ONplan Lab, Mesto Pardubice

In collaboration with the ONplan Lab team, I outlined and led  the process of envisioning the strategy and  future of the Mills Island area in Pardubice, Czech Republic. The area is characterized by contrasts. The iconic monument, Gocar's Mill house and its declining bakery production gives a background to one of the most vibrant parks, Na Spici, on the edge of a quiet residential district. The City of Pardubice identified it to as  one of the upcoming transformation zones. In order to maintain the value of the area, a commission was carried out to gather all the relevant information and stakeholders' visions and to organize a legal competition architectural workshop.
