CCEA MOBA did not process the competition brief and responses to the supplementary information in this competition. CCEA MOBA only took over the competition once the designs were submitted. This was based on the request of the City of Příbram to organize the jury meeting and the following steps leading to the approval of the competition result by the City Council.

The subject of this architectural-urban design competition was the preparation of a design for the revitalization of J. A. Alise Square in Příbram VI-Březové Hory. The aim of the revitalization is to revive and transform this square into a dignified space that will correspond to the significance of this area and the historical context of the original mining settlement of Březová Hora.

Until the first half of the 20th century, Březová Hora was an independent town with extensive mining activities. In the second half of the 20th century, when uranium mining in the Příbram district was developed, Příbram experienced a rapid construction development, when the entire Březohorské settlement was built, and the construction of houses at the foot of the Březová Hora tailings took place, thus connecting the two towns. Although the J. A. Alise Square has lost its significance from the time when Březová Hora was an independent municipality, it has not lost any of its importance for the inhabitants of this part of the town and at the same time it forms the third square in Příbram, or after T. G. Masaryk Square in old Příbram, the 17th November Square in the Březohorská settlement from the 1950s, the J. A. Alise Square is the natural centre of the third most important part of Příbram - Březová Hora.
