The End of the Estate how you know it? Citizens' Involvement in Urban Planning in the Context of the Dispute over New Construction on the Ďáblice Housing Estate
Křesalová, Tereza ; Novák, Arnošt (advisor) ; Lehečka, Michal (referee)
The master's thesis focuses on citizen participation in urban planning in the Ďáblice housing estate in Prague. Within the context of the dispute over the development of the housing estate, the central focus is on the claims-making process and the argumentation used by local residents organized in the association Krásné Kobylisy. The main theoretical framework used is the concept of "the right to the city," and its practical application is examined in this work, and the theory "production of space". The issue is approached from the perspective of social constructivism, which enables the capture of the social reality of actors and their involvement in shaping the space of the housing estate. The empirical part is based on qualitative research, including interviews, document analysis, and participant observation. The aim was to reflect the claims and resistance of local residents against the development project. Key words: urban developement, social constructivism, right to the city, production of space, urban movements
On physical and symbolic space: The case study of the House of Trade Unions Istropolis in Bratislava
Hanulová, Lenka ; Lehečka, Michal (advisor) ; Zandlová, Markéta (referee)
English title: About physical and symbolic space: The case of the Istropolis Trade Union House in Bratislava Abstract: If the space of the city is socially produced, it can be argued that at a symbolic level it represents the social environment in a given territory and at a given time (Lefebvre, 1991). In this respect, it should therefore be true that if society's views, dominant narratives or discourse change, the physical form of the city also changes and vice versa. Is this the reason why Bratislava's Istropolis had to be demolished? This thesis examines the accuracy of these assumptions in the case of socialist modernism in the architecture of the post-communist region, specifically using the example of the Istropolis building in Bratislava. Although socialist modernist buildings are architecturally valuable, they are often considered ugly or even demolished as undesirable. What are the dynamics that lead to such discourse and action? Are such buildings really "ugly" and undesirable? If so, why? What role does ideology play in this perception?
Overtouristed! Overtourism in large-size specially protected areas of the Czech republic
Müllerová, Eva ; Rynda, Ivan (advisor) ; Lehečka, Michal (referee)
The Master thesis' central theme is the phenomenon of Overtourism. It compares its status in three large-size specially protected areas: The Krkonoše Mountains National Park, Bohemian Paradise Protected Landscape Area and Třeboň Basin Protected Landscape Area. Based on interviews with representatives of the protected areas administrations and with tourists, the thesis aims to describe and analyze central conflicts of a nature- based active lifestyle and nature protection, as well as to identify the impacts of increasing tourism on the fragile ecosystems of the protected areas. Increased attention is given to the differences between pre-pandemic and pandemic situation. The empirical research combines several methods: semi-structured interviews with both sides of the conflict, participant observation in the field and the analysis of materials such as relevant legislation and regulations of tourism. This thesis hopes to contribute to the state of knowledge by its thorough description of the issue in the three analyzed areas; and by creating a typology of tourists coming to the protected areas which could be applied in future tourism management. Based on its conclusions, the thesis also drafts measures for future tourism management of given areas designed to mitigate the conflict situation.
