Czech functionalism and its greenery. The domestic garden of the 1920s and 1930s.
Kahlová, Jacqueline ; Švácha, Rostislav (advisor) ; Biegel, Richard (referee)
The subject of the thesis is the so far neglected topic of garden creation in connection with functionalist residential architecture. In terms of time, the author defined the period of the 1920s and 1930s of the last century, spatially the territory of Bohemia and Moravia. The term residential garden comes from the contemporary discourse, which understood the garden as an extended living space, with a special emphasis on its recreational use. In terms of type, the work will focus on the villa garden and will follow how the development of the functionalist house was incorporated into the theory and practice of the landscape production of the interwar years. The description and interpretation of selected examples of the residential garden is preceded by a thorough analysis of the theoretical work of Otokar Fierlinger and Ladislav Žák - two prominent promoters of the new landscape style, which was to become the equivalent of architectural functionalism. The diploma thesis looks not only for the existence of such a garden, but also for the wider significance of nature for architecture itself.

Interpretations of Solomon's Temple presented on example of Spanish El Escorial
Stupak, Evgeniia ; Macek, Petr (advisor) ; Biegel, Richard (referee)
The Temple of Solomon is one of the interests of a large number of scholars in many fields. Since ancient times, it is possible to find theoretical writings telling about what the biblical monument looked like. In the Middle Ages, many efforts were made to reconstruct this biblical monument. Just like the Middle Ages in the Middle Ages, they were more concerned with the spiritual meaning that the temple carried, and since the Renaissance they have also devoted themselves to the technical side of the building. This work describes several already existing and known reconstructions of the First Temple. Probably one of the most important buildings is the residence of Spanish king Philip II of Spain - El Escorial, which was built during the second half of the 16th century. In connection with the construction, an extensive study was created by Juan Bautista Villalpando, which was funded by the king himself. The work of a Spanish priest encouraged a new wave of interest in Solomon's legacy. Villalpando's research was used by Philip II. to build the new Spanish king's residence El Escorial. Which, in connection with a number of other details, gives the Spanish headquarters the status of "Reconstruction of Solomon's Temple". The work also mentions other sources of inspiration that influenced the form of El...
