The purpose and goal of the competition and subsequently the new form of František Křížek Street was to find a suitable solution in this complex urban situation, taking into account the requirements of its inhabitants, individual public institutions, operators and their visitors. It should be borne in mind that one of the most pressing issues in this location is parking and the client here states its requirement to maintain the number of residents' parking spaces.
The street should become a refreshing and pleasant place to be instead of an unfriendly corridor of parked cars, which will benefit local residents. At the same time, it was necessary to create a place for safe movement of children in the school section, and to create an appropriate forecourt for a cultural institution near the "Bio OKO" cinema or the "Alfred in the Courtyard" theatre.
