The design was based on a multi-faceted, people-friendly public space, typical for the dynamics of both the city as well as its residents. It offers a whole spectrum of urban functions and a plethora of choice. This space was designed to guarantee a lively, diverse, high quality urban space found along the city’s main artery. The design is composed of a diverse collage of squares, city greens and commercial galleries, forming the city’s ‘backbone’ and joining the two distinct Katowice landmarks – the Spodek Arena and the Town Square. The design foresees the creation of a diverse yet cohesive fragment of city life.
