Feilden & Mawson wins Czech university scheme - images

  • Comment
Feilden & Mawson has clinched a major design competition to create a new school of architecture at Brno University in the Czech Republic.

The project, led by the practice's Prague office, will see two historic palaces transformed into dedicated faculties for architecture and the arts.

According to project leader Pavil Nasadil, the palace interiors will be completely remodelled into 'very contemporary spaces by clearing partitions to create more space and creating light wells in the entrance'.

Part of the existing site will be demolished to make way for a new piazza, Nasadil added: '(This) will create an empty corner that will be brought to life with students and other people inhabiting it.'

The project will take two years to complete.
