New design for Prague´s Public Transit Shelter and Railing

15. února 2018

Prague City Council has tasked the Prague Institute of Planning and Development to prepare a negotiated procedure with publication for New Prague Street Furniture – Design of a Public Transit Shelter and Railing. This plan is part of Prague’s interest in unifying Prague street furniture and creating a special design that reflects the environment of Prague.

Current stage

Participants could submit offers until 25th April. Altogether 20 participants enrolled in the procedure and already received invitation to submit indicative proposals. Now they have time until July to create and submit their proposals. In the first phase, the main emphasis will be on the quality of the concept. The jury will choose 6 participants that will continue into the second phase. In the second phase the design proposals will be developed further with the possibility of consultations with the contracting authority. The announcement of results is planned in December 2018.

Subject of the contract

The subject of the contract is a design proposal for street furniture for Prague, specifically a public transport shelter and railing.

The objective of the contract is to find a refined form for both elements, so that they correspond visually to each other, fulfil all functional requirements and allow design variations that allow them to be tailored to the requirements of each stop and site in the city. The purpose is also for both elements to satisfy modern design, functionality and durability requirements.

Documents and competition brief

All materials regarding the negotiated procedure with publication and the technical specifications can be found here:


The negotiated procedure with publication will allow the contracting authority, the evaluation committee, the invited experts and the parties of the proceeding to communicate directly with each other and to discuss the submitted design proposals. This procedure is necessary to achieve a first-rate solution for the technologically more complicated elements, such as the public transit shelter and railing.
