We intend to transform SNP Square, Velvet Revolution Square and Kamenné Square in Bratislava into a single unified public space. We have proposed certain solutions based on long time analyses and surveys.
Some quick wins have been implemented, and at present, an architectural competition for a complex revitalisation of the area is taking place, announced by the Capital City of Bratislava, the Metropolitan Institute of Bratislava, and the General Investor of Bratislava.
Between 2016 and 2018, Alliance Old Market Hall, SGI, architectural studios 2021 and Labak created the Živé námestie (Vivid Square) project in cooperation with the City of Bratislava. They collected plans proposed in the past, added the missing data, and gained hundreds of new suggestions and pieces of knowledge. In this way, they prepared background documents for the competition, but also proposals for simple and quick improvements of public spaces. More about the project
In 2019, the project was taken over by the Metropolitan Institute of Bratislava /MIB/, which used the documents from the project to prepare a timeline for implementing the so-called quick wins, which can bring positive change through relatively simple interventions.
In 2019, Bratislava, the Capital City of the Slovak Republic and the Metropolitan Institute of Bratislava announced an international architectural competition in the form of a competitive dialogue for the revitalisation of SNP Square, Velvet Revolution Square and Kamenné Square. The competition brief is based on the data available in the project. At the same time, the architectural competition will ensure that the design of the square will be of the best quality possible.
