Public participation and stakeholders engagement

Public debate in the Center for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning

As a part of public engagement, an expert debate took place on 17th May 2021 at the Center for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning of IPR Praha. The aim of the discussion was to inform the public about the scope of the competition, to discuss the development of this strategic transport hub and the expected competition results. The speakers included the competition clients, Prague City representatives, the competition organizer and other experts. Questions were taken from on-line viewers in real time. 

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED? 

Local residents, business owners, people working in the area and others frequenting the place have their own unique experience with Florence and its surroundings. They are aware of the values and problems of the place, which may be perceived differently by each demographic group. 

You can influence the results of the competition in two phases. In spring, we collect people’s perception of the values and problems of today’s Florence. They will be provided to the competition teams. In autumn, public consultation of competition proposals will take place before the final meeting of the competition jury.
