ARQUITECTUM, a company devoted to the organizing of architecture competitions, is pleased to welcome the world's architects to the International Architecture Competition to be held from September 2012 until January 2013.

Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and the largest city in the region of Bohemia. It has a privileged location in the center of Europe and is well connected with neighboring countries, making it one of the most popular destinations on the continent. But like any growing city is lacking housing units and this situation is still of great concern to planners and the City Council of Prague.

This project is to design five (variable number according to your designed) towers housing the new bridge become an item "alive" that allows the users to use the top as an urban "public" space at the same time as a "private", and that supports the typical mute concrete, brick or steel something "dead" to something "energized" for its nightlife and/or diverse. Thus the Municipal Government trying to install a new type of housing: housing over the river (economic, social) but it is no less beautiful in views, spaces or enjoy the city.
