Prague Railway Stations Un/Used

This publication was released to coincide with a conference and exhibition titled ‘Prague Railway Stations Un/Used’, which was organised in early March 2012 by Galerie Jaroslava Fragnera, the Research Centre for Industrial Heritage (VCPD) of the Faculty of Architecture of the Czech Technical University, and a civic initiative called ‘This Doesn’t All Belong to Developers’ (Tady není developerovo o. s).

The book is divided into two parts. The first contains papers by scholars writing about railway stations in Prague from the perspectives of history, architecture, urban studies, industrial heritage, and heritage conservation. The second part presents eighteen student projects with proposals for the adaptive re-use of Žižkov Freight Station in Prague; these projects were developed as part of a workshop organised by the VCPD and Galerie Jaroslava Fragnera in autumn 2011. The publication, exhibition, and conference were all prepared as part of work on the project ‘Industrial Topography of the Czech Republic – The Adaptive Re-Use of Industrial Heritage’ (DF11P01OVV016) supported by the NAKI (National and Cultural Heritage) programme of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.
