|PERLA||Back to homepage|
On the left bank of the Vltava river, on the southern outskirts of Prague, there emerges Perla. A new town for all who create. A paper making factory that has laid abandoned for more than a decade will be settled not only by those who create but, together with them, all those who are vital for a self-sufficient community to survive and thrive.
We stand at the beginning and there is a lot of work ahead of us. Divus has already started to build a National Gallery, a cafe and facilities for creative work. We are looking for the founders of a National Theatre and all other professions and inhabitants who want to start somewhere else, anew.
Ateliers, studios, offices, workshops, larger manufacturing and commercial spaces are available. In the nearest future we plan to reconstruct and to rent out the already existing apartments and to offer short-term accommodation.
The Perla is not just another of the short-lived gentrification projects, but a town with a future to be created by its inhabitants.
