To the beginnings of monasteries in Vyšší Brod and Zlatá Koruna
Facincani, Filip ; Macek, Petr (advisor) ; Kuthan, Jiří (referee)
Due to the possible similarity between the oldest parts of monasteries in Vyšší Brod and Zlatá Koruna we can see an opportunity to study inventions of their foreman, which is in literature mentioned as a creator of significant architectural parts of them. I am going to make a morphological analysis of the oldest parts of both monasteries and discuss published options in a question of their datation. As a part of this work there are going to be presented some of my own discovers which have not been analysed in this context yet.
Baroque garden of the castle in Smilkov near Sedlčany
Blüml, Josef ; Macek, Petr (advisor) ; Biegel, Richard (referee)
The work deals with the area of the late baroque garden which was built approximately in the middle of the 18th century at the chateau in the central Bohemian town of Smilkov, which then belonged to Count Jan Jindřich of Bissingen. The thesis focuses on a complex spatial analysis of the garden and also it attempts to reconstruct the so-called theatron as it represented a totally unique realization of its kind in our country. Attention is also paid to the wider European context of late baroque and rococo gardens as well as to the question of possible authorship of the whole complex. The work includes visualization of the possible reconstruction and detailed photographic documentation.
Jakub Teplý - East Bohemian sculpturor on the border of late baroque and neoclassicism
Šafka, Václav ; Adamcová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Macek, Petr (referee)
The basic aim of this bachelor thesis was to research personality and work of late baroque scupltor Jakub Teplý (1729-1802) through archive materials and literature. This sculptor was reliably working in Pardubice, its close regions and in the city of Ledeč nad Sázavou between 1761 and 1797. The motivation for making a detailed medallion and catalogue of the sculptor's work was that he has not received deeper attention of the Czech art history yet - a profile of his life, as well as the history of his works, have been missing. In addition, his work has not been surveyed in the frame of Bohemian sculpture of the second half of the 18th century. A critically-conceived review of all these aspects should have led to a fundamental sum of facts that would make it possible to interpret Teplý through relevant information in the future. In addition to this, a number of topics, which appeared during the research, could be essential for next studies of this sculptor and the wider cultural and historical context of the eastern Bohemian region in the 18th century - such as the sculptor's Viennese studies, his support of Franz Brandstein, his work in Ledeč or the character of the ordering practice in Pardubice in the second half of the 18th century. Key words baroque, rococo, classicism, sculpture, eastern...
Barn and Tempel. German Churches in North Bohemia around the Year of 1900
Řičánková, Alena ; Macek, Petr (advisor) ; Petrasová, Taťána (referee) ; Nešpor, Zdeněk (referee)
Although the North Bohemian region is mainly associated with the industrial rise of the second half of the nineteenth century, which altered the local scenery and cities irreversibly, there were also far more traditional constructions being built around 1900, such churches. Between their solid-state and period concept is blended the influence of the authentic architectural progression, individual impress of architects, furthermore liturgical requirements of particular beliefs and concrete visions of owner-builders. Back then the ideal image of a church was seen as the root of discussion and polemic when many theoretical texts and building regulations were originated. The submitted work observes mainly the use of modern architectonic components following authentically traditional church architecture type. It is done pre-eminently, based on written theory and architectural practices confrontation. The given discussion I pursue with Catholics, Old-Catholics and mainly with Evangelical Confessions, whose base of theoretical text is the widest and newly build churches the most numerous. The subject given is closely related to national questions, situation and purpose of the German inhabitants resided in the territory of North Bohemia. As well as to fundamental influences that were coming here from neighboring...
Heritage Preservation at the turn of the 1980s and 1990s in Prague
Kusáková, Anna ; Biegel, Richard (advisor) ; Macek, Petr (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to conduct a survey of the preservation of architectural cultural heritage at the end of the 1980s and beginning of the 1990s. This will be demonstrated using as an example the historical centre of Prague. The thesis is divided into two similar parts. The first one focuses on the system, workings and legislation of heritage preservation in the 1980s. Partially it describes broader social and political aspects of the 1980s as well. The second part addresses the same topics, but during the beginning of the 1990s. In each case, three heritage preservation examples have been selected and these provide a closer examination of the system of cultural heritage preservation described earlier. The research work conducted demonstrates that whilst during the 1970s and 1980s a preservation system of the centre of Prague was gradually established, the 1990s saw the system being slowly disrupted and weakened, whether intentionally or unintentionally. However, heritage preservation never achieved a fully satisfactory standard in either studied period. Keywords: heritage preservation - historic preservation - architecture - urbanism - Prague - 20th century
The Czech Radio Broadcasting Company Compound in Vinohrady, Prague
Slačálková, Zuzana ; Biegel, Richard (advisor) ; Macek, Petr (referee)
5 ABSTRACT This thesis is focused on four adjacent buildings that currently make up the compound of the Czech radio broadcasting company. There are three building phases that can be outlined: the oldest functionalist building from the late 1920s, and a later functionalist addition from the 1940s. The second phase materialized in the dramatic change of the Radio building block in the 1960s and 70s, when this strategically located area was selected for the development of important transportation structures, and for the placement of public office buildings such as the sculptural World union federation building, Gas transit headquarters, and the Ministry of energy. In the euphoria of the 1960s, it was also planned to move the Radio company to a new skyscraper on the Pankrac plain, however, this plan never materialized. The Radio remained in its original spot, and the following third phase brought the restoration of the oldest building, and the addition of two minimalist buildings, bringing the entire compound into a full enclosed block in the 1990s. In the individual phases, I repeatedly open the same questions: what is the relationship between the location and the building, how was the construction itself affected by the purpose for which it was built, how does it compare or fit in the context of the...
Metodej Haban, Silvestr Braito and Dominican Order in Czechoslovakia 1918 - 1948
Macek, Petr ; Petráček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Šmíd, Marek (referee) ; Hanuš, Jiří (referee)
Metoděj Habáň (1899-1984): A Probe into the History of Czech Neothomism Abstract The thesis is focused on the depiction of the life and work of Metoděj Habáň (1899-1984), Czech Dominican priest and philosopher. It follows two main goals: First, it strives to present accurate reconstruction of Habáň's life and his involvement in the Czech Church and society. Secondly, it presents Metoděj Habáň's thinking as a specific type of Thomism and analyse his work in the context of the paradigmatic changes, which the Church and society went throught in the 20th century. The thesis is therefore divided into two main parts - first is focused on Habáň's life, second on his work. In the first chapter it present main sources of inspiration for his work and thinking. In the following chapters it describes his life journey, beginning with his studies and spiritual formation within the Dominican order. It continues with his role in the inner life of the order in the position of Novice Master and Prior Provincial (1938-1942). Attention is also paid to his involvement in the public life of the interwar society. In the period after the second world war we follow Metoděj Habáň to Litoměřice, a town in northwest Bohemia and we describe his imprisonment in the 1950s and subsequently his involvement in public life in the 1960s. His...

Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma
Procházková, Kristýna ; Hora, Milan (advisor) ; Macek, Petr (referee) ; Král, Milan (referee)
The Pilsen region suffers the highest incidence of kidney tumours worldwide. Approximately 240 new cases diagnosed as C64 (malignant renal tumours outside the pelvis) were recorded in this region of about 580,000 inhabitants in 2015. Clear renal cell carcinoma has long held first place as the most common tumour, with papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC) being the second most frequently operated kidney tumour at the Urology Department of the University Hospital in Pilsen. The 2016 WHO classification of kidney tumours recognizes officially only the stratification of pRCC to type 1 (pRCC1) and type 2 (pRCC2). Unfortunately, the current division does not correspond with knowledge derived from everyday practice. Most clinical trials involving pRCC do not differentiate between the subtypes, adhering only to the official type 1 and 2 divisions and the atypical papillary forms being excluded from their studies. We therefore have to face the question of whether the histological pRCC subtype affects the risk of recurrence, or death, in surgically treated patients. The aim of this dissertation work is to take into consideration also all other papillary types which differ from characterization of pRCC1 and pRCC2. The analyses of a group of patients with surgically treated and histologically verified pRCC at...
