Introduction: The site in question is one of the most valuable building lots suitable for development in the capital city of Slovakia, Bratislava, thanks to its proximity to both, the historic city center, and the new downtown as well as its position on the southern bank of the Danube River.

Summary: For decades, the city of Bratislava has been planning to transform the area between the two bridges on the southern bank of the Danube River into a new city center. This area is considered strategic in terms of city’s development plans with the intention to create a compact city by the river.

The main goal is to create a new central city district interconnected with the already emerging downtown and to join the opposite sides of the river, out of which the southern is significantly underdeveloped. The purpose of this competition is to find suitable and functional masterplan concept with outstanding and unique architecture, landscape, and public space design.

We are confident 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 life, work, and free time.
