Westwerk. A contextual analysis of the roots and meaning of the birth of the specific architectural element and its impact on not just carolingian but also later sacral architecture in Europe.
Horáček, Michal ; Royt, Jan (advisor) ; Macek, Petr (referee)
The essay hereby submitted concerns itself with the genesis of the architectural element generally known in art-historical studies as westwerk/westwork and originating in the Carolingian times of the eigth and ninth centuries. Methodologically the topic is approached from two mutually opposite perspectives. One, in the vein of the Vienna Scool, pays attention to the development of westwerk's form, i.e "from within," while the other favours the view "from outside," and stresses the cultural, political and other influences of the historical time.It also take into account the receptive approach of Ernst Gombrich. The main reason for wfiting this essay, however, is the fact that no special work has as yet been dedicated to the westwerk phenomenon in the Czech environment, aven though its influence on the local architecture was far from negligible.

Architectural and historical research of the rural homestead Harazim Nr. 29 (Rájov, Zlatá Koruna municipality)
Facincani, Filip ; Lunger-Štěrbová, Daniela (advisor) ; Macek, Petr (referee)
The aim of the diploma thesis was to carry out a detailed architectonical survey of the homestead Harazim (Rájov, village Zlatá Koruna), which has been registered as a cultural monument since 1958. The survey proved that the oldest building of the homestead is a granary, dating back to the first quarter of the 17th century. The still noticeable three-part layout of the dwelling dates in its entirety to at least the end of the first third of the 18th century. Both the granary and the dwelling were substantially reconstructed around 1865, when the so-called small building, the knowledge of which became a partial aim of the thesis, was lost.
The foundational activities of the Markvartic family in North Bohemia in the context of 13th century Central European architecture
Panošková, Tereza ; Macek, Petr (advisor) ; Kubík, Viktor (referee)
My diploma thesis is focused on the foundational activities of the Markvartic family which is one of the most prominent families in Northern Bohemia of its time. In terms of the investigated area and period, the diploma thesis is a continuation of the author's bachelor thesis which was focused on the foundational activities of the House of Wartenberg which had a common ancestor with the Markvartic family. The work's focus is the evaluation of relics of preserved buildings in historical and cultural context, where their original feature was changed by later building measures. Every object will be described and analyzed using secondary literature, material and literary sources. The result of this method will be a short synthesis including the outline buildings stages of objects and their style evaluation. This method will be applied on the background of historical contexts, which represent connections of the Markvartics and royal court and the Cisterciensis, Dominicans and Johanites Order.
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...

Problematical historical preservation buildings from the 2nd half of the 20th century on example of the Military building Abstract The bachelor thesis focuses on the problematical protection of buildings from the second half of the twentieth century. The historical preservation issue will be presented on the construction of a Military building, which was built in the style of Brutalism. This unique building of architect Jan Hančl will be monographically worked on and evaluated in a broader sociology context, together with related problems of its historical preservation. The recent circumstances, which led to a longtime covering using large billboards, will be clarified. The following removal of the advertisement provoked a lot of emotions and resulted in a complete demolition. The author of this bachelor work aims to take hold of this affair, and he points out the historical institution malfunctioning, which is slowly becoming a phenomenon. Besides ordinary art- historical methods, oral testimonies of direct participants were used, primarily of the professional public, along with the conservationists, and members of the club called Za starou Prahu.

The work deals in detail with specific realizations of residential areas in today's city district of Prague 6 - Ořechovka, Hanspaulka and Vokovice. Emphasis is placed on the comparison of the ideal garden city with the realization of the so-called "garden suburbs" of Great Prague and outlining the main differences between them. Key words: Garden city, architecture of 20th century, Prague, Ořechovka, Hanspaulka, Vokovice, Great Prague, State regulátory commission, regulatory plan
