PRAGUE – The ambitious project for the construction of a new cultural and creative center in Preslova Street in Prague 5 was approved by Prague councilors at Tuesday’s meeting. This new building, replacing the current operating building of the Švand Theater, is to serve as a center for the performing arts, providing rehearsal spaces and laboratories for theater and cultural institutions. The planned completion of the construction is set for 2028, and the total cost is estimated at 220 million crowns.

The project of the Preslov Multifunctional Space, a creative center for performing arts, represents an important step within the Action Plan of the Cultural Policy of the Capital City of Prague 22+. Jiří Pospíšil, deputy mayor for culture, emphasized that there is an obvious lack of rehearsal spaces for theater and dance in Prague’s cultural sector, which hinders the efficient operation and development of artistic projects. “The establishment of additional rehearsal rooms will significantly improve the efficiency of operations, not only in terms of the number of performances,” he said.

The new construction of the operational building in Preslova Street will offer institutions a total of five new test rooms and two laboratories for light and sound design. At the same time, it will be a space for cooperation between the academic sphere (DAMU), the independent and established sector and the cultural public. The operational building, which will serve as a creative center, was originally only supposed to be reconstructed, however, a detailed static survey of the building proved that the original intention of building on the existing building was not feasible. The building is not suitable for reconstruction due to the low quality of the construction of the original building, and due to current standards, the only option is to build a completely new building.
