The key motive is ‘Motol Valley is a landscape in the first place’.

The study regenerates the western part of Motol Valley in a city quarter with a value of the location, not merely an ordinary periphery. City's landscape along the Motol brook is the principal phenomenon, generating the green spine with strong undiscovered leisure potential. The study brings transformation from an urban jungle into a leisure park with city-wide importance.
It sets up the promenade as safe for pedestrian as for cyclist at the axis of the park - the road along the Motol brook, which is connected with the other one, designed in the first stage. Considering this, a new city park is open to a wide range of sport and social activities. The Plzeňská street cannot be an obstruction but connection between adjacent verdant valley sides. It comes with re-planned transport corridor into a tree-lined ‘green boulevard’.  The inaccessible private areas of manufacturing plants and warehouses can be transformed into several local centres, which would bring places for services across the whole territory. The objective is to establish a vigorous and functional part of Smíchov, which would serve to residents in a sustainable way.
It is a long-term challenge that is set by the study - its way and goal.
