Concept for the Development of Culture, Creativity and Heritage Conservation of the Olomouc region
For the Olomouc Region, we are preparing a Concept for the Development of Culture, Creativity and Heritage Conservation, the main goal of which is to create a cultural scene accessible to all and good conditions for cultural actors across the region. We are currently finalizing the design part of the Concept.

The preparation of both the analysis section and the design section of the Concept was accompanied by several workshops with members of the cultural scene, partakers from the field of cultural heritage, representatives of municipalities in the Olomouc region and representatives of the regional established cultural organisations. During these workshops with the representatives of all groups of partakers, we tried to discover their main needs, define the main problems they are facing and name the causes of these problems. The needs of each group of partakers were different, but the repeated issues were the need for a developed cultural infrastructure (this problem is most visible in smaller towns); the need to engage younger audiences in cultural activities and support civil society participation and the need to support networking and the regular meetings of the stakeholders in the cultural scene of Olomouc region.

Concept of a Cultural Centre for Moravská Třebová
The city of Moravská Třebová acquired a significant development area, the brownfield of ​​the former Miltra factory near the city center, adjacent to the park near the Moravská Třebová Museum. The intention of the city is to use the area for cultural activities, for which there aren't adequate conditions at the moment.

Cultural infrastructure in the city is represented by the renaissance Moravská Třebová Chateau, which also houses the city library and primary art school; and the Moravská Třebová Museum, which is the building of operation for three cultural venues – the museum, cinema and cultural services. Due to this, an overlap of operations occurs and nor cinema nor museum can deliver their best programmes. The city also lacks a hall for cultural activities with a capacity of about 300 people. Cultural life in Moravská Třebová thus does not reach its potential.

But that can change! The result of our work is an analysis of the cultural environment of the city which resulted into a concept, which will be used as the basis for architectural and urban design competition for a new Cultural and Creative centre in Moravská Třebová. The competition was announced in April 2022 and the proposals should address a the need for a new community library, a cultural and creative center and examine housing possibilities in the area.

Culture Development Strategy of Hradec Králové

"Hradec is a quiet but a boring city." was an opinion that we heard at one of our participatory workshops which were a crucial part of the preparation of the design part of the Strategy. "It's a city where people return with their families, but it nothing much happens here."

Of course, the previous view is only one opinion, but it defines the direction in which our Strategy is heading. Members of the cultural scene of Hradec want to connect more with young people in the city and to do so they want to create an attractive cultural scene and provide cultural infrastructure and means of support to allow people to express themselves creatively within the city. An important part of the new strategy is planned support and mapping of the active CCI sector and another equally important goal of the strategy is to revitalize the public space  and fill it with cultural and community action and to encourage locals to get involved.

Last but not least, the city is planning o develop its marketing brand and internal identity. Because Hradec Králové has a lot to offer locals and visitors alike, whether it is 20th century architecture, important events (Rock for People, Queen Eliška's Festival, the Regions Theater Festival) or the famous Hradec Králové embankments. One of the planned activities is the transformation of Gayer's barracks into a so-called museum campus and cultural center, which could certainly become a major destination for cultural tourism.

Strategy of Culture and Creative Industries Development of Olomouc

We have prepared the Strategy of Culture and Creative Industries Development for the city of Olomouc - the city's first document of this type! The aim of our work was in cooperation with key partners to create a proposal for the overall vision of cultural development in the city of Olomouc, to determine the conditions for improving the existing offer of cultural activities for residents and visitors and to provide long-term solutions based on the principle of cultural diversity in Olomouc, which will be sustainable for funding from public budgets.

Olomouc is known as a student city with a unique historical atmosphere, which is most vibrant in the old town, its landmark being the Holy Trinity Column included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The city of Olomouc is also referred to as a live culture city (did you know that there are eight theatre stages in Olomouc?) And live art - during the year, its one event happening after another.

An important topic of our strategy (but not the only topic for sure) is the connection of cultural heritage and live art, the two parts that make Olomouc what it is today. The vision includes the center of the city animated by the works of contemporary art presented among the heritage,  cleverly "provoking" it world's and making a place where the old meets the new in the field of architecture and modern design.

Concept of Cultural Development of Liberec

In Liberec we prepared the Concept of Cultural Development, which was a condition for the city's planned candidacy for the title of European Capital of Culture for the year 2028. The Concept defines the cultural development vision of the city based on the analysis of the current state of the cultural scene, the city's cultural potentials, main problems and their causes. The strategic goals further refine this vision of development. Measures and specific activities were then formulated to lead to the fulfillment of these goals. The concept serves as a basis for Liberec's candidacy for ECOC 2028, the recommendation describes in particular the advantages and disadvantages, opportunities and threats of using the candidacy as a tool for city development in relation to individual development goals, identified needs and development opportunities of the city and the wider region.

During the analysis of the cultural environment, we realised that Liberec is a fascinating city. Did you know that the most visited science center in the Czech Republic is located in Liberec? And that only in Liberec a tram will get you from the city centre to the ski slope? And that the local F. X. Šalda Theater has three ensembles of its own, which is unique for a regional city of the site of Liberec? And that in the main city square, the Dr. E. Beneš square, more than 150 events take place during the year?
We look forward to seeing how far the cultural potential of Liberec reaches in the future.

Cultural Strategy of Rožnov pod Radhoštěm

In the town of Rožnov pod Radhoštěm, we prepared a cultural strategy connected with the planned construction of the building of a multifunctional cultural center. However, the relationship between the town and the Wallachian Open-Air Museum also proved to be crucial.

Rožnov is well known throughout the Czech Republic thanks to the Wallachian Open-Air Museum, which has the primary role of preservation of folklore and folk traditions and their presentation to the public. Rožnov pod Radhoštěm only has about 16,000 citizens, while the Museum is annually visited by over 350,000 people. It is therefore the strongest cultural player in the city but it is mostly focused on external tourism and the city doesn't not benefit much from its presence. Part of our work, together with local cultural players and people in the cultural and creative industries, was to find a common path to the city's cultural identity for the 21st century, using the presence of a strong state institution. Because Rožnov does not only mean folklore.

Culture and Heritage Conservation Strategy for the Hradec Králové Region

The Hradec Králové region is one of the pioneers of strategic planning in culture in the Czech Republic and also a region that does not have its cultural wealth concentrated only in the regional city, but scattered in the region.

Perhaps that is why there was an emphasis on the cultural and creative industries in the region during our work. One of the goals of the design part of our strategic document is to identify strong cultural and creative industries traditional for the region as well as the new emerging ones, and to strengthen their importance for the region's brand. Integral part of the brand building process will be involvement in international projects that will support the inclusion of the Hradec Králové region on the map of creative Europe and create conditions for the development of quality contemporary architecture, public space and urbanism in the region.

The creation of the strategy was complicated by the covid19 pandemic, which suspended the process for a while. However, we tested that strategies can be developed despite such barriers, we moved the meetings to the online environment and involved the public through virtual meetings. We thus learned a lot of new things on the project.

Culture Development Concept of the Prague 6 District
The city district of Prague 6 represents the interface between the center and the periphery and is defined by several important phenomena: the most important international airport int the Czech Republic and the General Staff of the Czech Army, Prague 6 also has the largest concentration of embassies and diplomatic residences as well as a high concentration of universities, which include home and foreign students. Prague 6 territory is composed from a number of localities with various amenities and cultural community offer.

Our analysis of the cultural environment of Prague 6 has also revealed weaknesses – Prague 6 may have a traditional scene of local music clubs dating back to the 1960s, the popular Dejvické Theater, Semafor Theater and Spejbl and Hurvínek Theater – but apart from these scenes there is practically no place for cultural events and people have nowhere to meet. An important finding was that there is a lot going on in Prague 6 in terms of culture but the public often has no idea about it.

In the strategy, we defined 3 areas of development - 1) Cultural identity, which will support the sense of belonging for the local people and will also aim to develop the Prague 6 brand externally, 2) Cultural offer and cooperation, which will focus on developing activities of a wide range of cultural and community stakeholders in localities and 3) The infrastructure for cultural and community events, where the Prague 6 district will provide active support in the creation of cultural infrastructure in emerging neighborhoods.

Strategic Development for Invalidovna

After a long public debate about its fate, the Baroque pearl from the works of Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer was entrusted to the care of the National Monuments Institute (NPÚ) in 2018.

ONplan was commissioned by the NPÚ management to create a strategic development framework together with NPÚ experts and the main stakeholders of community, cultural and business life in the Karlín area, which will be the basis for commissioning an architectural study and subsequent reconstruction of the building. Invalidovna should become a multifunctional place where both local and foreign visitors will come and find their interest, a place that will be vibrant and alive 24/7.

 As a flagship of the NPÚ, the Invalidovna building should be representing the cultural heritage of the Czech Republic to local and foreign visitors, and thus entice tourists to visit not only Prague but the regions as well. According to the strategy, a centre for the creation and presentation of Czech cultural and creative industries should be established in the building, as well as a place for community activities of residents and educational and research activities of the NPÚ.

Public participation on the revitalisation of the Odkolek industrial complex

Metrostav Development became the owner of the former Odkolek industrial complex –former bakeries, at the end of 2017, with an already existing project to transform the area into a residential area. However, they decided to create a new project, in which they wanted to involve the local community living in the Krocínka district above the bakery complex. The investor wanted the new district which will be built in the place of the current brownfield to respond to the needs of the local community and bring value not only to new residents, but also to the current inhabitants of this part of Vysočany. 

The course of the project preparations, including land management, was openly communicated with the locals. During the neighbourhood meeting with a map, the investor and the architects got acquainted with the needs and interests of the inhabitants, which were then included in the design of the revitalization. The principles of revitalization were presented at an open day, and three months later the concept of revitalization was introduced. Subsequently, a public consultation of the proposal took place. Comments have been settled. Only after the completion of this participatory process was the project documentation completed.

Before the workshop there were conducted individual interviews and profiles of 18 key stakeholders and owners in the area. These actors then met at 2 round tables where they discussed a common vision of development. We  regularly informed public on activities and outcomes through an information campaign.

Based on collected data, a competitive workshop was prepared and implemented. Thanks to this workshop we selected the author of the land regulation plan and  defined widely shared vision of Mlýnský ostrov development. So the winner of the competition workshop subsequently drew this vision into the form of a land regulation plan. "

Masaryk Railway Station is conceived as an important place for social and business life, a meeting place which people will not simply cross but where they will find a pleasant environment for work and entertainment. This is „Masarykova spojuje“ – 'Masarykova connects'. 

The surrounding of the Masaryk Railway Station is at the core of Prague and its potential remains undeveloped for decades. After years of discussions about the future of the Masaryk Railway Station and the search for a vision for the entire territory, it was decided to maintain the station's function and revitalize the area. Historical buildings undergo renovation and a brownfield adjacent to the railways will find new uses.

Zaha Hadid Architect's Design creates a new high-quality public space in the area that will improve the permeability of the area and will fulfill recreational and social functions. The revitalization wants to make a better use of the transport hub and strengthen the function of the center of Prague as a center of the new economy with a high added value, which should complement today's preferred orientation for tourism.
