Nova Huta Urban Planning

The rationale behind the design of Nova Huta derives from the city's history as a socialist industrial town neighboring the main city of Krakow. The plan supports ecologically healing of contaminated soil, while evacuating existing plants in the northwest of the city - preserving and re-using them in favor of sports and cultural facilities.

The new grid of roads emerges from the unique texture of organized and existing steel plants. This texture is part of the unique D.N.A of the city. Public transportation creates a Network connection between the grid of the city of Krakow and offers a direct link between Nova Huta and the main town to the west.
