The regeneration of a small public space in front of a local library and theatre is the first phase of a wider regeneration masterplan in the Prague municipality of Zbraslav.
Additionally, innovation came through an art in public realm strategy. Prague Zbraslav was a home to one of the collections of the National Gallery located in the Zbraslav Chateaux. Due to owner restitutions, the collection had to be moved away from the nearby Chateaux recently and the council saw an opportunity in preserving the tradition of publicly accessible high quality Czech art in Zbraslav. We employed a renowned art critic, journalist and theorist Karolina Jirkalova to research into the possibilities of applying art in public space.
