Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Open House Prague Festival took place again this year, this time from 2 to 8 August 2021. The weekly accompanying program offered a number of events that introduced architecture to visitors in an unconventional way. People could sail on the Vltava paddle steamer, take the Kotěr tram with an explanation by architect Zdeněk Lukeš, enjoy a unique composed evening with contemporary dance and an evening tour of Laichter's house, or take part in a debate and film screening on abandoned buildings right on the grandstand of the Great Strahov Stadium. There was also interest in the tour and discussion, which presented the course of the reconstruction of Zenger's transformation station, the future headquarters of the Kunsthalle Prague in Klárov. During the week, other guided tours and walks were prepared, for example on the occasion of the 130th anniversary of the Prague Exhibition Grounds, 150 years since the construction of the Gröbe Villa in Havlíčkovy sady or 150 years since the arrival of the first train in Prague. "We were surprised by the great public interest in the accompanying program of the Open House Prague 2021 festival," says director Andrea Šenkyříková, adding: "The events were intended for a limited number of people, and despite the fact that we were already fully booked at the beginning of the festival week. "
The developer AFI Europe, which has so far implemented three phases of the Classic 7 Business Park administrative center in the field of office real estate, AFI Karlín, AFI Vokovice and AFI City 1, has decided to take a major step in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and in protecting its tenants. It is newly installing a unique system of Global Plasma Solutions (hereinafter referred to as GPS) in the common areas of its office buildings, whose patented technology based on bipolar plasma ionization effectively eliminates bacteria and viruses in the interior of buildings, including elevators. For SARS-COV-2, tests have even shown 99.8% efficacy. The same system is already used abroad, for example, by the White House - the seat of American presidents in Washington, Harvard University or Google.
The AFI City office building 1 on the city brownfield in Prague 9 near the Kolbenova metro station is full of interesting architectural and design elements. One of them is the artistically crafted gear motif, which occupies the entire main wall of the reception hall, and is the first thing that welcomes visitors. The work by Czech artist Ivan Komárek is a reminder of the rich industrial past of Vysočany, which was the pride of Czech industry at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries: the most important companies at the time included the Czech-Moravian Machine Factory, Kolben's Electrical Factory and a plant of the engineering company Breitfeld-Daněk, later connected with the world-famous ČKD, but also the carmaker Praga or the Avia Aero aircraft factory.
Developer AFI Europe has completed the first commercial building in the newly built AFI City district on a large brownfield in Prague 9 - Vysočany. The elegant AFI City 1 office tower, with a height of 75 meters, has become a new dominant feature of the rapidly developing location around the Kolbenova metro station. Behind the distinctive façade with an atypical lattice and a pearl effect, there are 17,300 m2 of modern offices, complemented by a retail unit, storage facilities and an underground car park with a capacity of more than 300 parking spaces, a bicycle shed and showers. The construction work was carried out in accordance with the principles of sustainability, so the building has already received the green pre-certification BREEAM Excellent. The CMC architects studio is behind the project design, Gemo was the general contractor for the construction and OM Consulting provided construction supervision. AFI Europe's total investment exceeded 40 million euros.
