Open Call: Southbank Bratislava Architecture and Urban Design Competition


Open Call: Southbank Bratislava Architecture and Urban Design Competition

The site in question is one of the most valuable building plots amenable to development in the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava, thanks to its proximity to both the historic city center and the new city center as well as to its position on the south bank of the Danube.

For decades, the city of Bratislava has planned to transform the area between the two bridges on the south bank of the Danube into a new city center. This area is considered strategic in terms of city development plans with the intention of creating a compact riverside city.

The main objective is to create a new central district of the city interconnected with the already emerging city center and to join the opposite banks of the river, the south of which is considerably underdeveloped. The aim of this competition is to find a suitable and functional master plan concept with outstanding and unique architecture, landscape and public space design.

We are convinced that our project – defined by its location and scale, has strong potential to become the most valuable addition to the city center as well as an attractive and comfortable urban place for living, working and leisure. .
