The new synagogue in Frýdek-Místek
Večeřová, Pavla ; Velek, Jan (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The assignment of the diploma thesis was the elaboration of an architectural study of a new synagogue in the Frýdek-Místek. The solved area includes the original lands of the Jewish community, on which stood a synagogue, a Jewish school and a rabbinate. The synagogue was burned down in 1939 and currently only the rebuilt Jewish school building is located in the area. The main idea of the design is to build a memorial on the site of the original synagogue and a new synagogue with an adjoining community centre. The main goal is to support the development of the Jewish community in the city and to remind citizens and visitors of the history, because of which the Jewish community in Frýdek-Místek disappeared. In contrast to the monument, the entire building is set in the terrain so that the terrain passes freely in a public space with the main entrance to the community centre and a kosher restaurant. The building opens up to the south side of the slope and offers a view of the historic city centre of Frýdek. The area is connected by a footbridge to the park under the castle. Part of the community centre is a space for a ritual bath - Mikveh, the administration of the Jewish community and a multifunctional hall, which can be opened to the area in front of the residential staircase. The area is separated from Revoluční Street by a retaining wall and thus form an attractive place to spend time near the historic centre.

The new synagogue in Frýdek-Místek
Bartíková, Michaela ; Velek, Jan (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The topic of my diploma thesis is the architectonical study of the new synagogue of Frýdek-Místek. The plot contained the original synagogue in the past, which was, like many other synagogues in Czechia, burned down by the Nazis. The only memento to the original synagogue left was the Jewish school. Its frontage was however stripped of all architecturally valuable elements and therefore lost all its historical value. For this reason, in the scope of this thesis, I have decided to tear down the old building and create a completely new complex, which will comply with the requirements of the Jewish quahal, with regards to architecture and utilization of the object. I’ve designed a monument, consisting of simple stone blocks in place of the old, torn down synagogue. The stone blocks mark the location of the outer walls of the original synagogue.
New synagogue in Trutnov
Velešíková, Karolína ; Velek, Jan (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The architectural study deals with the design of a new synagogue in Trutnov, on the site of the former burnt down synagogue from 1885. The synagogue from 1938 was set on fire by the Nazis during the so-called Crystal night from 9 to 10 November in 1938. Besides the synagogue, the proposal deals with the entire Jewish complex, namely a kosher restaurant with facilities, an administrative part for the Jewish community, a mikveh connected to a sauna. The task was to solve the location of buildings complicated area of ground, which is not easily accessible, and also to play with the idea of preserving the original location of the synagogue. The result is the design of a new community center. Its purpose is to return the existence of the Jewish population back to Trutnov, where the Jewish population has not existed for a long time. The design consists of two objects. One of them is a separate synagogue where prayers, celebrations and other events take place. An important part is also the kosher restaurant, which provides the specifics of catering, as well as a mikveh used for a cleansing ritual with a sauna relaxation area. The next function is the seat of the Jewish community.
New synagogue in Trutnov
Kurečka, Ondřej ; Velek, Jan (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The architectural study deals with the design of a new synagogue in Trutnov, located on the site of the original synagogue, which was burned down in 1938 during the so-called Crystal Night. Currently, the area is a place of reverence, as a reminder of this historical event. The concept works with this idea and develops it further by adding other functions of the Jewish community - kosher restaurant, the Jewish community centre, and the mikveh. Due to the site location between two historical neoclassical buildings, the grounds should look humble and non-conflicting. The concept of the site is based on the needs of each individual functional unit and on the historical ties in the area. The concept of the synagogue itself is derived from the history of Jewish culture, its connections and mostly symbolism. Also, the reference to the original burned down synagogue is taken into account.

Three separate objects cover the needs of this community for everyday and spiritual life. This includes education taking place in the library, the seat of the jewish community and its leaders, ritual cleansing areas of the mikveh and the commercial space of the kosher food or products store. It is necessary to have a kosher restaurant providing proper eating. An important part is also the space of cultural activities in the form of artistic or other exhibitions and events.

New synagogue in Opava
Gášek, Daniel ; Velek, Jan (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The aim of the thesis was to create an architectural study of the new synagogue in Opava. Similarly to many other towns and cities, the former synagogue was burned during Kristallnacht, the ruins were completely demolished and taken away. Nowadays there are no buildings on the site, except the former Rabbi’s house. Basic idea was in preserving the park character of the site by insertion of a non-arrogant low cuboid volume in the neighbourhood of apartment buildings from the first half of the 20th century. Designed form benefits from the character of the site while humbly avoiding construction on the actual place where the burnt synagogue stood. This creates an elegant, low object, whose two dominant ceiling slabs are filled with glass in between so it preserves a part of the park’s existing transparency and let the interior freely connect with exterior, also thanks to large sliding windows. In the center of the block is situated three sides closed atrium, which surrounds the new synagogue, into whose interior delicate scattered sunlight penetrates through the translucent onyx stone walls.
Olomouc Central European Forum
Machát, Jan ; Velek, Jan (referee) ; Dulenčín, Juraj (advisor)
The new building of Olomouc Central Europian Forum is concieved as an extension to the existing building of Olomouc Art Museum. It fills the space of existing vacant lot clining to the existing object from the west. The new building contains new spaces for modern art expositions and also creates enough storage capacity for the new and the existing building. The architectural solution results from the division of historic building estates and from the character of surrounging build-up area. The volume of the building rising from the site is created by five tracts oriented perpendiculary to the street boundary, that are of a simple shape of block with pitched roof. In the central part the tracts are transected by a traversing volume of a galery with glass pitched roof, that provides additional daylight for the central part and connects the new and the existing building. The facade of the new building is created as a doubled construction with the interior screen made of pure double glass and the exterion screen made of milk glass, that transmits enough difuse light into the inner spaces. There is a LED screen stretched in between these two transparent planes, thanks to which the facade glows in the dark with interesting light effects.

The area where we work is large and it is therefore important to solve the area as well as urbanistically. The diploma project solves a separate building of the synagogue, an administrative building with a courtyard for the Jewish community, a separate restaurant place in tower moat, and two buildings located in the gap of an existing building. One of these objects is used for the Jewish culture museum, the second is polyfunctional. Furthermore, the park areas and underground parking is being solved.
