Trnitá: a new district of Brno

Transformation of the brownfield located in a very attractive area between the existing main railway station and the river Svratka, directly linked to the city centre, is an important project in Brno. The initial intentions of private investors have developed into a close cooperation between land owners, city representatives, and local companies with the major Czech and foreign architecture studios. Thanks to the participation of an exceptional group of people, a process has been triggered that brought about much more added value, the connection between the city centre with its green infrastructures and river landscape being the main one. The concept of combining green infrastructure, architecture, new transportation solutions, and water management is innovative and unique in the Czech context.
