Architecture and Urbanism, MA diploma project


Czech music is historically significant an d beneficial worldwide. Prague is home to one of the most respected symphonic orchestras in the world and there is not concert hall with excellent acoustic parameters in teh city. The City of Prague Praha has been considering the construction of a new building of Philharmonic, but the answer to the question about the site is still not answered. This project examines the location of this institution  in the center of Prague, Klárov. Room acoustics is solved by shoebox acoustic scheme. The new concert is part of the urban structure of the Malá Strana, and its links to the Vltava river sensitively complements the city.
