Airport City

/competition entry/authors Jakub Kopec, Michal Mačuda, Jiří Vítek/Prague/2015

A surplus of existing non-articulate areas is infilled with built-up volumes creating an urban score of a city which is diverse as well as Prague itself. The envelopes pose a main spatial regulation based on diagram. These are derived from a flight profile and shading parameters of surrounding buildings, the envelopes are optimalized in relation to views from a new control tower. Their programme is multiple, they are able to be actualized during the built-up process. The districts create rhizomatic, mutually non-hierarchic and autonomous quarters organized around inner public space. The flow of public areas is inscribed into the surface pattern via equipotential lines, which are generated from the kind of movement. If it is quicker, these lines are more liquid (transit around districts), if it is more quiet, lines create meanders and sediments (inner shared spaces).
