Radio 1

Officially established in the Spring of 1991, RADIO 1 actually began broadcasting in the autumn of 1990 as a pirate radio station. The station was situated inside the pedestal of the former Stalin Monument as a part of the Totalitarian Zone exhibition. Despite being met with an enthusiastic and appreciative response a broadcasting equipment was confiscated by the government several days after supporting the continuation of broadcasting and against State's monopoly of radio and television on broadcasting, it was signed by 30.000 people. In February 1991 the equipment was returned and RADIO 1 began to broadcast under its current name. It was the first independent privately owned radio station in the republic. The difference between RADIO 1 and other commercial radio stations is in its music program. Rather than concetraining on the usual hitparades, top 40s, and golden oldies RADIO 1 focuses its attention on more serious work, specifically on alternative, independent music of all styles. The most important thing for all the people from Radio 1 is to spread quality music.

Prague Institute of Planning and Development

The Prague Institute of Planning and Development (IPR Prague) is the main conceptual workplace for elaborating Prague’s city-wide strategic, conceptual and analytical documents and programmes such as the Metropolitan Plan of Prague, The Strategic Plan, the Manual of public Open Spaces, and the Conception of Prague Waterfronts, etc. IPR Prague is a contributory organisation established by the City of Prague.

The Metropolitan Plan describes and regulates the city by means of localities, which form the basic unit of the land use plan. They are the part of the territory described on the basis of their character. Each locality is unique and denominated unequivocally. Localities cover the entire territory of Prague; they are both inside and outside the city. For individual developable localities, their identity, the structure of public open spaces and the quality of the neighbourhood are described and set. For each locality, a height level will also be set corresponding to its character and position. For undevelopable localities, the character of the landscape is described and determined. The boundary between developable and undevelopable localities – “the boundary of developable land” – is the plan’s first and most important regulative.
