Railway brownfields - potential of the city. Case study of Bubny railway station.
Kluchová, Adéla ; Slámová, Eliška (advisor) ; Pospíšilová, Lucie (referee)
The railway, that brought the industrial expansion to the medieval walls of Prague in the 19th century, left there a hundred years later immense, undivided lucrative spaces, that are overdimensioned for the requirements of the current railway transportation. The railway brownfields now offer their potential to integrate themselves into the city organism, connect the already existing housing areas and create new, multifunctional city quarters. This thesis introduces the issue of the railway brownfield transformation in both historical context, and the context of nowadays approach to spatial planning. The case study presents the brownfield of the Praha-Bubny railway station and the organisations, that are creating the image of the brownfield's future transformation, as well as their partial goals and ideas about the newly forming space. KEY WORDS: railway brownfields, Bubny railway station, transformation, urbanism, spatial planning

The symbols presented by the tourist agency are predominantly ethno-historical, such as tartan, thisle or traditional Scottish music, whereas the political representation of Scottish national identity is dominated by the symbolism of a fair, just and pacifist community and a clear definition of the Scottish national identity towards the English one. The subjective perception of Scottish national identity combines both approaches....
