Revitalization of Ješutovo Square and Square II. odboje in Bystřice


The subject of the competition is to find the best solution to reconstructing the Ješutovo and the II. Odboje squares. The objective of the competition is to find a partner for the town of Bystřice who will design a high-quality and functional public space, and prepare an adequate solution to two most important public places in town.
The two squares are located in the centre of the town of Bystřice and represent the main public space of the town. The west side is neighboured on by the main road of the Dr. Edvarda Beneše street with the local magistrate in it. It then changes into the Karla Nového street. The centre is occupied by the “špalíček”, and a number of minor construction and traffic alterations. The “špalíček” has lost its coherent structure and character, and has become disconnected from the surrounding public space.
At present the II. Odboje square serves as a parking lot, same as the Ješutovo square which also features the statue of Jan Nepomucký in the middle of the parking space. There are also the health centre buildings, the theatre, library, and local magistrate. In Ješutovo square also stands the house number 76 - a historically preserved country homestead.
The squares today are a result of a series of alterations of varied quality which mirror communal priorities throughout history. The aim of the competition is to interpret the squares in a new way and create a much used and respectable main public space in Bystřice.
