Vašut, Radka ; Šimara (Horáková), Eva ; Kilnarová, Pavla
The aim of this paper is to compare the number of pedestrians in individual directions of street, the total number of pedestrians and the walking speed in three selected locations of the pedestrian zone in Brno’s historical centre. This will be done in order to verify the dependence of pedestrian walking speed on the character of the selected location. This article compares the acquisition of this data both empirically and by digital data collection using a data logger via a Wi-fi signal from the mobile phones of public space users. The outputs are presented as graphs comparing times and measured data from all case studies, complete with comparisons to the digital method.

Froňková, Dominika ; Řehák, Filip (referee) ; Pavlovský, Tomáš (advisor)
The thesis deals with the design of the area after the former brownfield of Tepna Náchod. The aim of the thesis is activate the territory, to revive the city center and to design the buildings in connection with the historical center and the chateau with a suitable functional structure, responding to the city's shortcomings. The proposal respects the character of the place trying to prefer pedestrian and cycling – pedestrian zones, cycling zones. The concept is based on the maximum use of built-up areas in the designed area and on the permeability of the entire area, the interconnection of three squares and the creation of a new public space. Furthermore, the concept responds to the historical city center and the chateau hill - views, perspective axes. Newly designed buildings are residential buildings with active parterres, administrative building for research and development, multi-purpose hall, retirement home, kindergarten, federal house and parking house. The new development clearly defines the street network. Part of the design is the planting of a park under the chateau hill with the revival of the trough of the Plhovsky´s stream.
Kraví hora - BUT Family silver
Davčíková, Gabriela ; Kyselka,, Mojmír (referee) ; Nový, Alois (advisor)
The subject matter of the Master's Thesis deals with the design of the Brno University of Technology (BUT) compound on Kraví hora and comes as a follow-up to the work done in the previous academic term. The aim was to combine the interests of the city of Brno and that of the Brno University of Technology (BUT); to create a common zone which would incorporate attractive park areas for the general public and a representational space for the promotion of BUT and other activities that the university has been lacking to date. The primary objective was to make the compound more accessible to the public as there are currently community gardens which stand as a barrier. The entire BUT compound is thus integrated with the neighbourhood, providing numerous public areas that are ideal for relaxation and leisure activities where people may enjoy their free time. The new buildings will offer visitors an introduction to the history and current state of the University of Technology, mainly via exhibitions and entertainment. The faculty buildings, designed as a recruitment centre and used to present student work, will perform additional functions. The current facilities will be utilized as areas for graduates in creative disciplines who will be able to rent their first art studios there. The new buildings are set in the terrain so as not to disrupt the natural aspect of the park, seamlessly blending into the surrounding landscape. Another interesting feature is an observation tower, designed to further utilize the location's potential and provide visitors with a wide view of the area, far into its surroundings.
New South District and its Connection to Svratka
Boček, Adam ; Hybská, Bohumila (referee) ; Sedláček, Michal (advisor)
The subject of the thesis is a part of the South Center of Brno. After a long period of time, the locality is starting to "wake up to life", thanks to the fact that after a few decades it was finally decided on the fate and location of the Central Station. Thus, it is expected to expand the city in a southern direction. Then incorporate adjacent areas to the center. The thesis follows the project from 2018, the subject of which was the design of an urban concept of a territorial unit defined by Opuštěná Street, the Lower Railway Station, the Svratka River and the planned new urban class located on the visual axis of Cathedral (st. Petr and Pavel). Therefore, the thesis deals with the architectural study of a part of this area, situated near the river Svratka, on the border of the newly emerging city embankment. It is a multifunctional block, with predominant use for housing with 136 apartments for about 450 inhabitants. This block is further divided into 3 buildings, which have two underground floors providing technological background, and parking spaces for the entire multifunctional block. Further, the architectural study focuses on one of these polyfunctional block objects and processes it in more detail. The building of the residential building, called "A" in the study, provides a total of 47 apartments. And in the ground floor of the building there are rentable spaces for various uses. The effort of the proposal was to create quality living in a unique location on the waterfront and provide the inhabitants with a view of the Svratka River and the park on the opposite bank, even though it is almost in the city center.
New South District and its Connection to Svratka
Bařinová, Anna ; Hybská, Bohumila (referee) ; Sedláček, Michal (advisor)
Despite a few decades of discussion and the existence of all the studies on the transfer of the Brno Main Station to the river and the subsequent construction of the new Trnitá district, it has not been decided on the exact architectural form of these major urban interventions. In my pre-diploma thesis, I worked out an urban study of a new southern district - Trnitá, which gave above all a functional and mass form of the territory. This location will be extremely interesting for both the city's visitors, who will be moving from the station to the center, and of course for the potential new residents of the district. The district offers a unique combination of city life and recreation in the immediate vicinity of the natural river and park features. For a more detailed elaboration, I chose a building within a walk-through block by a river consisting of two buildings. My goal was to create a new scenery for what's happening in the neighborhood, to design new scenarios for how we can look at blocks. Given the contact with the waterfront and the river, I decided to propose both private and public functions. An important role is played by the courtyard, which defines a private space (a raised platform intended only for the residents of the house) and a public space - a creative center courtyard using a raised part as a residence bench. The mass of the house is horizontally divided into two parts. The first and second floors belong to the creative center, which is transparent with distinctive stone columns. An important goal was to show the life and movement of the center and its openness to new people and ideas - access from the yard. From the third floor there are apartments that are terraced and offer views of the river and roof terraces of deluxe apartments.

There is a large number of localities in Prague that have lost their industrial glory or transport signifi cance. Today, these areas remain unused and turn into neglected scars on the city´s face. 1466 hectares of such territories exist now in Prague. Their transformation and limitation of the city´s expansion is one of the main goals of the new Prague´s Metropolitan Plan. And the solution to the transformation of the former ČKD is the subject of this thesis. Conditions for the revitalization of the territory of the former ČKD are embedded in the zoning plan for the Prague´s district Vysočany, in the new Metropolitan Plan and the new development projects in surrounding play its role too. The aim of the chapter is to evaluate the existing land situation, its use with respect to the new Metropolitan Plan and conceptual renewal of the postindustrial territory of Vysočany district. The thesis presents a possible example of the creation of a new urban district, which offers housing, modern offices, sports and all amenities. Modern architecture of high-rise buildings is complemented by quality solutions of public spaces, green streets and parks.
