The goal of my project is urban delimitation for social and cultural life of people. The multifunctional building takes place along the Lerchova’s street and it is a closing point of the square. The other side of affore mentioned square is opened towards the park on Kravi hora. The dominant place is a st. Augustin church, that is located on the north side. The closing point on the south is a cultural center, which is connected with community garden. My main intention is to change a traffic situation, that is currently quite problematic. To accomplish this I have joined the Udolni and Brezinova streets together with a perpendicular street. The tram loop is also shifted more into the parkside. The main object is the 5 floor multifunctional building, that is in elementary concept with passage. The object determines natural communication axis from the square to school in the Lerchova’s street. This concept is also reflected on the square. First floor is realized as a parter with commercial usage, the floor above is designed for living and parking is in the underground. Area for living is divided into a part of 1 floor housing units, that are accessible from a platform and a part of housing units inside the main building. Project comprises blue-green elements of grass surface for sucking the water into soil, trees in the square and perennial bed in the middle of tram loop.

Cults of Water Deities in the Context of State and Local Deities' Relationship Under the Nguyễn Dynasty
Nováková, Barbora ; Maršálek, Jakub (advisor) ; Zemánek, Marek (referee) ; Otčenášek, Jakub (referee)
The topic of this work is water deities under the Nguyễn dynasty (1802-1945) in the context of state's relationship with local deities. Vietnamese rulers were striving to integrate locally worshipped deities into the state cultic system throughout Vietnamese history, and these efforts climaxed under the Nguyễn, the last Vietnamese dynasty, whose state cult stemmed from older Vietnamese tradition of the Confucian repertoire. Based on study of primary sources this work addresses the relationship of state power and local deities in 19th century. This relationship was differentiated, dynamic and full of compromises, despite the proclaimed state's power over local deities. Focusing on water deities and trying to classify them the state power's tendency to penetrate remote parts of the realm as well as its lowest administrative levels through official recognition of local deities is apparent. Within this process local water deities were transformed from ambivalent nature deities into quasihistorical heroes embodying state promoted Confucian values. These tendencies are apparent in the case of specific water deities, brothers Trương Hống and Trương Hát, worshipped in Bắc Ninh province in the north Vietnam. Key words water deities, religion, Vietnam, religious policy, Confucianism, Nguyễn dynasty

The Seal Skin: An Interpretation of the Icelandic Folktale and its Motifs with regard to the Old Norse Symbolic Frame
Nováková, Barbora ; Starý, Jiří (advisor) ; Kozák, Jan (referee)
This work presents an interpretation of icelandic narrative about the Seal Skin with regard to the Old Norse symbolic frame, so the possible paralel motifs and motivic "cores" could arise, even in spite of the temporal period between the origin of our primary text and the origin of Old Norse myths and sagas. The approach of this work is based in structural theories and tools used by Claude Lévi-Strauss, where these tools help us identify the basic narrative units called mythemes: primarily they include characters, objects and settings. The basic principle of founding these mythemes in different genres and cultural contexts is the method of amplification, which is used in psychological and clinical practice of Carl Gustav Jung. The aim of this work is to grasp and comprehend the narrative and its meaning and connect the Old North mythical tradition with modern folklore of Iceland. The result is in-depth analysis of the symbolical net, in which the narrative and its mythemes are embedded. Furthemore this analysis displays the contribution and benefits of the particular interpretation levels and its usefulness for future research. Key words: seal skin, seal woman, seal, icelandic folklore, Old Norse myths
