This design contest is held in the Czech language only.

The subject of the competition was the design for the reconstruction and extension of the Pod Marjánkou polyclinic. The client is looking for a solution that will not significantly limit the current operation of the polyclinic and, at the same time, will be efficient, economical, and sensitive to the architecture of the building.
The competition's aim for the Pod Marjánkou polyclinic was to reconcile the existing building representing the quality architecture of its time, which is to some extent worn out and which today no longer fulfills many operational, technological, and structural-physical requirements with the demands we currently place on outpatient healthcare. At the same time, it must be stated that this is a building that is a characteristic and important building in the organism of Břevnov. Still, after half a century of operation, without any major interventions, it is now necessary to proceed to a more drastic form of modernization.
