Competition to redesign Žižkov rail freight station agreed

Architects are to be invited to take part in a competition to reshape the Nákladového nádraží Žižkov rail freight station in Prague, following a decision by the local council. Under a long-term plan the extensive complex is to be turned into an arts and education hub. Local officials say they will work in conjunction with the Prague Institute of Planning and Development and the owners, a consortium of Czech Railways and developers Sekyra Group.
