Old - new urban spa
Porubská, Dominika ; Kolouch, Jiří (referee) ; Hrabec, Josef (advisor)
The building of the former town spas occupies a leading position not only in the context of Fuchs's work, but also belongs to the top of European architectural avant-garde. Despite the unfavorable landscape conditions, realization of the Zábrdovice spa has created an environment of open sun and unlimited space, while preserving the undisturbed intimate atmosphere. The project is an impressive indicator of past building techniques and even today influences us with the atmosphere of the time of its origin. That's why it's sad that this monument is currently dwindling. The area is only partially used as a summer swimming pool. The building of the winter spa is devastating, it has a negative impact on its surroundings, destroying its potential. To survive must be the monument exploited. In order for the building to be used, it must respond to today's technical, dispositional, aesthetic and operational requirements. Here we have to address the issue of adapting the building to the present claim, often unfortunately at the expense of preserving historical value. Reconstruction of this functionalist treasure is a challenge for many architects. My endeavor was to find a compromise in which the building will adapt to the needs of people today, while retaining its functionalist spirit.
