We imagine the new KCP as a sustainable landmark floating above a new urban park. The public spaces and new amenities below will attract and draw together the centre’s visitors and the citizens of Prague creating a symbiotic dialogue. The building is composed of a single unitary volume which confidently organizes the open space flowing freely underneath. The small built footprint creates an incredible setting under the reflective underbody where urbanity and unexpected activities blossom.
