AEA Consulting worked with the team of Henning Larsen Architects and Buro Happold on a strategic feasibility study for a new contemporary concert hall in Prague, Czech Republic. The planning for the new hall – currently known as Vltava Philharmonic Hall – is overseen by the Prague Institute of Planning and Development, an urban planning and development authority for the city of Prague. The selected site for the future hall is in a riverfront location in Prague 7, a growing and vibrant arts and cultural district on the north bank of Vltava river.
AEA conducted a market assessment looking at the types and levels of demand for specific uses of the future hall and an analysis of leading concert halls in Europe and the world to help inform the brief for the future concert hall in Prague. As part of this work, we undertook consultation with key stakeholders to understand their ambitions for the new hall. Planned to launch in 2031-2032, the new hall is to offer a high-quality acoustic experience for musicians and audiences. Celebrating Czech and international classical music heritage, it would become a destination for music lovers and a cultural hub for Prague residents and visitors.
The completed feasibility study was presented to the Prague Institute of Planning and Development and Prague city councillors in January 2021. Visit the Prague Institute of Planning and Development project page for project-related materials and updates.
