The thesis "Zahradní město Barrandov" (Garden City Barrandov) focuses on the emergence and subsequent development of the district in Prague, which is still popular today, until the period of the Second World War. The aim of the work was to depict and describe not only the initial plan of the building engineer Václav Maria Havel, the single author, builder and investor of the garden city, but also to investigate events related to the subsequent implementation of the plan. The materials and information have been retrieved mainly from the recollections by Václav Maria Havel summed up in the book entitled Mé vzpomínky (My Memories) and from testimonies by his contemporaries. Also used were the following primary sources: building designs, period leaflets, advertising broadsheets published by Obchodní kancelář (the Business Office of Barrandov), photographs and contemporary periodicals. Secondary sources focusing on interwar architecture and building trade in general, as well as suggestions by experts in the field, were also of help.

The main part of the thesis is related to historical development of the Kacov Castle and its extensive Baroque reconstruction during the reign of Toscan Princess. The author separately depicts the constructional-historical exploration of the castle and corroborates it with a copious photodocumentation. The architecture of the square, vicarage and the Church of Virgin Mary is brought in in other chapters. The Baroque sculptural group of The Fourteen Saint Servants, which was made under the previously mentioned Toscan Princess as well, is described in the same way.

Every year the community was visited by thousands of summer guests. The life there was very abundant, which he furnishes with "Sokol", decorative, theatral and other institutions' activities. In the last chapters the author occupies himself with the development of the village up to the present. He highlights so much needed, albeit fiscally challenging reconstruction of the Kacov...
