The exhibition offers visitors analyses and reflections on the concept of interconnecting Ostrava city centre and Dolní oblastí Vítkovice, the potential of the river Ostravice, and future development solutions for the area around the city’s bay areas. Design concepts were devised as part of a student workshop jointly held by four universities, with the resulting panels produced by students from Mendel University in Brno.

More than 60 renovated or newlycreated squares, streets, parks, as well as works of art and events in public spaces are interpreted in terms of their physical form, social content and cultural significance.
