The re-design of the longest town square in the world focuses on unifying its currently disparate public realm and the re introduction of trams as a surface mass transit system complimenting the underground trains. A predominantly car free environment is prposed in substantive parts of the square forming two new large gateway spaces at each end and connected on the edges by wide tree lined boulevards. The public realm reorganization of the new Wenceslav Square presupposes that the orbital road currently in front of the National museum is relocated underground to remove a major severance and obstacle to cohesive place making and connective movement.
