Sustainably living village - Urban design of the village of Brněnce in relation to the former premises of textile factories
Poláková, Marie ; Obrtlík, Jan (referee) ; Májek, Jan (advisor)
The content of the diploma thesis is an urban study of the village of Brněnec with a focus on the area of the former textile factory. Brněnec is a municipality where Czechs, Germans and Jews have lived together for centuries. The originally conflict-free relations between the residents were violently broken due to the influence of historical events. The Czech-Moravian border passed through the middle of the village, then the border of the Protectorate. The local factory of the Löw- Beer family was an important branch of international importance, later becoming the scene of the rescue of Jewish workers by Oskar Schindler. The author's aim was to reflect historical events in the design to the maximum extent and as sensitively as possible, but at the same time with the intention of creating a building that is pleasant for users, with an emphasis on sustainability and aesthetic requirements and regarding urban connections on the scale of the entire village.
Relaxation and exercise center
Kalábková, Ladislava ; Obrtlík, Jan (referee) ; Májek, Jan (advisor)
The bachelor thesis focuses on the design of an administrative building on Soukenická Street in the bustling part of Brno. Currently, the plot houses buildings with zero utilization, deteriorating structures, and a parking lot. The entire area is unattractive, has limited use, and negatively affects the aesthetics of the intersection of two important streets – Soukenická and Hybešova. The architectural design includes the creation of an attractive corner building with multifunctional use, an underground garage, and a connection to the existing Malá Amerika building, which could have a new functional purpose as a commercial and restaurant passage or art studios. The administrative building offers a ground floor with a restaurant, bistro, café, and shop. Spaces are variable, allowing owners to customize them according to their needs. Additional above-ground floors are equipped with offices, both for larger groups and individuals. The seventh floor features a green accessible roof, a café, and meeting and presentation rooms. The bachelor thesis delves into the details of the administrative building section housing the main staircase with an elevator. Simultaneously, the design incorporates the connection of Soukenická Street with Malá Amerika through a passage in the proposed structure, aiming for potential future use of the building. The work stems from the architectural design studio in the second year, focusing on public structures.
Pisárky boating center
Filatova, Natalia ; Obrtlík, Jan (referee) ; Májek, Jan (advisor)
The topic of the bachelor's thesis is the design adaptation of the area of the former water treatment plant in the Pisárky district of Brno for the creation of a new building for a water sports center, utilizing existing structures of settling tanks, and adjacent areas to establish a water sports center. The center's design also aligns with studies for the modification of the Svratka River channel and the creation of a water canal. The architectural concept aims to connect the exterior with the interior. The mass solution is derived from several key points. Firstly, the site is bordered by Pisárecká Street to the south and Žabovřeská Street to the east, intersecting at an overpass of a multilevel interchange. This creates a noisy space, making it essential to establish a "barrier" to create a private and quiet area for relaxation with a view of the river and Pisárky Hill. The sports center building echoes the shape of the streets, with the highest point of the building located at the overpass, and the roof descending along both streets. On these two facades with minimal glass surfaces, the river-facing facades connect to the surrounding nature with glass elements. Secondly, it was necessary to respect the facilities for water sports enthusiasts, situated closest to the river for easy access. Therefore, the water sports center is located several meters lower than the sports center building and is embedded into the terrain along Žabovřeská Street. Additionally, a waterfront area along the river and canal will be designed, connected by descending sidewalks to Pisárecká and Žabovřeská Streets. The shape of the building and the waterfront respects the form of the river and the water canal. This center will serve members of the water sports club and residents of all age groups.
Gallery of Modern Art Brno
Jaroměřský, Ondřej Oldřich ; Obrtlík, Jan (referee) ; Májek, Jan (advisor)
The subject of this bachelor thesis is the design of a modern art gallery in Brno, Czech Republic. The building serves as a new cultural and educational centre, which creates a new landmark for the inhabitants of Brno. The site is located close to the historic centre of Brno, on the site of the former city walls at the Koliště ring road. There is a tram stop Malinovského náměstí at the main entrance to the site. Two paths lead to the plot from the planned city park, which will be built on the site of the ČD railway siding. The last access to the site for pedestrians and cyclists is from the newly designed footbridge over Koliště Street, which will connect the city park with the new parking house in Koliště Street. The adjacent surroundings of the building, including the parterre with park landscaping, are linked to the future development of the Brno Ringstraße and thus complete the planned green belt around the historic heart of the city. The designed building is six-storeys high, with two underground floors used mainly for parking not only for gallery visitors but also for residents of the surrounding area. The underground parking garage can be accessed via two wheelchair accessible entrances located opposite the main entrance to the gallery, with a vehicle entrance located on Koliště Street according to the new regulatory plan, which plans to build a parking building there. The gallery section itself is made up of four storeys, with the central part of the layout serving as an elevated atrium going through all the storeys, covered by a glazed skylight. This space is used to display large-scale art that can also be hung in the space. The first floor contains, in addition to a lecture hall, cloakrooms and two offices for the gallery management, a workshop room, an open space with refreshments, a technical room and three staircases that go through all floors, including the basement. The first staircase is located at the back of the elongated atrium and, together with the lifts, serves as the main vertical communication in the building. The remaining two staircases with lifts serve as escape routes in the case of fire, leading out of the building on the first floor. All floors are also connected by a hydraulic freight elevator, which is used for the supply and delivery of artworks to the building. The remaining floors with the same layout are primarily used as exhibition spaces with a view into the atrium from the gallery balconies. There are always sanitary facilities for visitors to the building and also preparation rooms for the exhibition spaces. The appearance of the building is heavily inspired by 20th century Brno architecture, both in terms of the material context and the morphology of the building. The heavy and dignified base of the building is formed by a ventilated facade with ceramic brick strip cladding, which emphasises the seriousness and importance of the institution housed in the building. The envelope of the remaining three floors is also made up of a ventilated facade, but with curved perforated panels of anodised aluminium and white powder painting. This upper part of the building, as if shrouded by a curtain, emphasises the fragility and uniqueness of the artworks exhibited, thus protecting them from the world around them, and at the same time highlighting their importance in contemporary society.
The multifunctional object Malá Amerika
Čamborová, Tereza ; Obrtlík, Jan (referee) ; Májek, Jan (advisor)
The subject of the bachelor thesis is to design a multifunctional building in the very center of Brno. The proposal involves working with a corner plot surrounded by urban structured development with historical buildings. The massing solution responds to the height articulation of adjacent structures to create clear views of the St. Peter and Paul Cathedral and the adjacent object, Little America. The partially nine-story corner building concludes the street line and serves as an orienting element in the city while also acting as a noise barrier. The low four-story building closes the gap and, in terms of height, connects Little America with the newly formed public space between the buildings in a quieter environment.

Obrtlík, Jan ; Kyselka, Mojmír (referee) ; Halík,, Pavel (referee) ; Šlapeta, Vladimír (advisor)
The thesis deals with the history and the interpretation of the development of sacral architecture during the first half of the twentieth century. It interprets the topic in a broad framework, which mentions the historical preconditions of this development and in the most important cases also its international relations. The introductional chapters list all up-to-date publications to the topic and suggest certain means of interpretation of sacral architecture which reflects the natural division of this topic between the disciplines of architectural theory and religion science. The own thesis begins with characteristics of social and religious situation in the Austria-Hungary and its consequences of sacral architectural development. It mentions basic examples of sacral buildings and the measure of their relation to the contemporary architectural development in general. Subsequently it mentions transformational influence of World War I and of declaration of souverain Czechoslovakia, which led to the emergence of new churches with their own architectural ambitions and also to the focus shifting of discipline to new contemporary topics. It follows the parallels with contemporary architectural trends of 1920's and the level of their use in the specific field of religious buildings also in relation to individual churches with their different architectural developments. Further it mentions sacral building development in 1930's with the emphasis in relation to the contemporary social atmosphere and in accent transformation between conservative and progressive religious approach. Than it follows with a review of religious culture transformation during World War II in Protectorate Czech Moravia and shows particularity of unnumerous examples of church buildings and projects from this era. The final part than reflects the evolution of the social role of religion after the War as well as an influence of communist coup in 1948 at potential of sacral architecture. It states the negative influence of both totalitarian regimes on the quality of sacral buildings of following period and on a poor measure of disciplines theoretical knowledge, which among others results in unsufficient primary sources, from which this thesis would likely have taken. Even when this thesis have not and cannot have an ambition of full exploration of the topic, it presents the factography and collecion of interpretations, by means of which the significant gap in the historiography of 20th century Czech sacral architecture can be at least partially bridged.

Design of a contemporary urban district in the context of a historic city - urban study
Stanislavová, Soňa ; Obrtlík, Jan (referee) ; Májek, Jan (advisor)
The aim of the thesis is to design a high quality timeless urban district or part of the city, in relation to the existing historic city. The area in question is located in the historic centre, which is also a conservation area. The site contains both urban landmarks and historic buildings. However, most of the buildings were built after 1945, when the town was largely bombed out. The main idea of the design is to respect the existing structure. The design complements the existing buildings and creates new blocks that clearly define public and private space. Other elements include making public spaces more attractive, revitalising traffic areas and improving pedestrian infrastructure. The newly proposed development is predominantly residential in nature and should increase interest in living in the city for young people and businesspeople.

Kvasnica, Lukáš ; Obrtlík, Jan (referee) ; Májek, Jan (advisor)
The assignment of the diploma thesis was the design of a contemporary urban district in the context of a historical city in the details of an urban study. The area of interest is Obránců míru housing estate, which is located close to the historical core of Třebíč and at the same time stood at the beginning of the Nové Dvory district development, which was significantly influenced by the construction of the Dukovany NPP. The main goal of this thesis is to demonstrate the ability of the housing estate to adapt to today's trends to a sustainable, self-sufficient, climate and energy-resilient urban structure with the application of blue-green infrastructure and to point out the importance of intensive recycling development. The concept of the re-vision consists of the creation of a high-quality environment oriented in greenery enhancing the concept of permeability, shaping and strengthening the community coexistence of residents. The re-vision is a gradual process based on phasing, which will ensure long-term stable development with the subsequent possibility of gradual renewal / replacement of the construction of panel houses with a new structure.
