Petr Stuchlík (ANO) spoke about the need to build a new concert hall during the pre-election campaign.
The proposal was also submitted to Spojené síly pro Prahu coalition headed by Jiří Pospíšil. “For the Prague Concert Hall, we will prepare an architectural competition. We want a really high-quality building; that’s why I estimate for it to take about ten years,” Hana Třeštíková (Praha sobě) told Echo24.
“The new concert hall can kick-start the revitalization of Bubny-Zátory area. For example, it is possible to carry traffic on the surface and below it, how to access the river and how to behave against the existing infrastructure and development,” said Ondřej Boháč, Director at Prague Institute of Planning and Development.
The need for a new hall was also agreed by former Mayor Adriana Krnáčová. The coalition cooperated on a proposal with architect Josef Pleskot: “We are a musical nation, and there is no concert hall in Prague or throughout the Czech Republic where large philharmonic music could be produced,” says Pleskot.
If the new concert hall is to come in the future, Prague’s residents should evoke feelings like a similar hall in Hamburg. “We want Praguers to be proud like the Germans are proud of their concert hall. The hall will allow the performance of major world philharmonic,” Hana Třeštíková told Echo24.
