The Adaptation of Industrial Heritage in the Context of Existing Urban Structures
Struhařík, Daniel
Two industrial sites are compared on the basis of a collective case study – a former textile factory complex belonging to Vlněna in Brno which has been demolished, together with the Löwenbrau brewery, which has been converted into a viable site with apartments, offices and a gallery (thanks to the reconversion and completion of new contemporary layers). The fundamental difference was found to be a result of the respective public sector’s differing approaches, especially in the sphere of spatial planning. Due to the long-term strategy, identification of qualities and potential based on discussions with developers and the further involvement of other participants, Zurich city is about to revive its industrial quarters whilst also preserving important traces of the past. The example of Brno is different. The spatial “zoning” method causes a specific development without maintaining any existing spatial qualities. Another reason is the attitude of the National Heritage Institute, which does not take the importance of the Vlněna complex into consideration in its decisions altogether with its reference to the former development of Brno city as a part of the local industrial heritage.

The goal of this diploma thesis was area between the city parts Malomerice and Obrany. After the construction of mill drive, an artificial island was created there. Industrial site with textile factories was established in 1912, however it does not fulfil its original purpose anymore and it is fairly damaged today. My intention was to clear the island and bring back its original form - park, unique place in nature where people acknowledge proximity of the river and cultural activities as well. I designed textile museum in the former factory building. It is accompanied by pavilion of Contemporary textile and fashion and also engineering exhibition. One of the components is an artificial canal for canoeists.
Historical brewery - potential for regional development
Mosler, Štěpán ; Boháč, Ivo (referee) ; Králová, Eva (referee) ; Zemánková, Helena (advisor)
Nowadays there are hundreds of breweries scattered throughout Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, waiting for their new future. They are either abandoned or in private property. In the worst case they have been deteriorating with no hope of recovery. There are not many left. It is very difficult to find a new function and especially enlightened investor. Important thing is how we will treat with these structures in the future. Will we use this unique potential, or leave this place for a new function? Which way we can choose? What is the potential of these buildings and what they need? This thesis attempts to briefly describe and demonstrate the value of brewery architecture which due to dramatic changes in society became endangered. And to offer possible solutions for the preservation this unique buildings their charm and atmosphere for the next generations.

I used only specific cases that are written between technical monuments and they are interesting both from a historical and urban or technical perspective. Thanks capture the historical and contemporary situation arose holistic view of technical monuments in the area and at the same time there was a familiarity with the approach and in terms of the industrial heritage. The work is divided into three main parts. The first is devoted to an introduction to the issues and explain the basic concepts. The second part focuses on the history of metallurgy and mining in the Kladno and also explores the main sights, except where their history is mentioned as the current status. The third section shows the current utilization of monuments, looking for inspiration in the Czech Republic and abroad, how to dispose of unused objects and finally introduces activities that help attract the public's interest in technical monuments and sights mainly to help themselves. The conclusion summarizes the main ideas and conclusions of the work. The main goal was to bring one of the cities with industrial...

Tanzerová, Eliška ; Lindner, Milan (advisor) ; Hucková, Barbara (referee)
The bachelor thesis is focused on conversions of industrial buildings into cultural sites which are used for purposes of theatre and scenic dance. The goal of the thesis is to analyze and evaluate condition of these real industrial monuments in the Czech Republic. Several selected objects are compared with examples from abroad and suggestions for improvement or opportunities for possible further development are discussed. The main objective of this thesis is a theoretical definition of industrial buildings and their categorization. Furthermore, the history of industrial heritage and the beginnings of its heritage protection are investigated. The thesis briefly summarizes transformations of the architecture which is related to industrial buildings primarily in the course of the last century. Further, the possibilities of transformation of industrial sites and their animation are discussed. Economical and socio-economic aspects of these aforementioned projects and possibilities of their new use are an important part of the thesis. The following practical part is focused specifically on the Ponec theatre and afterwards, similar examples of conversions in the Czech Republic are outlined. The aim of this practical part is to compare and apply the findings from the analysis of the historical, functional and economical aspects of this selected object from abroad into the example of the Ponec theatre.

Industrial sites vegetation area – Frydlant in Bohemia case study
Vokurková, Tereza
The aim of my dissertation research is to verify the hypothesis that vegetation areas make integral part of the industrial sites architecture. The case study of the Frydlant region in North Bohemia is part of the Liberec region, previously famous for its industry. Its original settlement structure was previously formed by valley field villages with German population; these villages smoothly grew into industrial villages during the 19th century. First, I brought together a database of manufacturing buildings dating from the medieval colonization. Subsequently, I focused on industrial companies with more than 100 employees from the 19th century to the mid-20th century. By means of research in archives and using on-line applications, I concentrate especially on analysis of the contemporary cartographic data, project documentation, iconography, historical photographs and aerial historical and contemporary photographs. My research documents the relationship between the enterprise size and the quality and quantity of its vegetation area. After specifying the borders of the observed enterprise areas I compare their total areas and their percentage of developed and undeveloped areas of various functions. In case of a landscape architecture discovery, a more detailed composition analysis will be performed. I also attest the influence of the industrial companies on the original site and its landscape around. The research is concluded with field surveys verifying the extent of preservation of the industrial premises. The preliminary results verify the hypothesis positively. The extents of vegetation areas and the ranges of their architectural approach show to be adequate to the industrial company sizes. So far, I have identified 28 industrial companies with more than 100 employees in the Frydlant region.
