Skinhead subculture within post-industrial era and its possible development through the eyes of its own members
Jakubčanin, Petr ; Maslowski, Nicolas (advisor) ; Urban, Lukáš (referee)
This diploma thesis is based on the essence of the subculture anchored in the post- industrial era. Through the relevant literature, I theoretically analyze the relationship of the skinhead subculture to the dominant culture and uncover its characteristics formed mainly by the influences of globalization, actual capitalist system and mutual interaction of various social factors. I also focus on the specific signs and internal differentiation of the subculture, which are related to its politicization. In the empirical part, I focus on answering research questions through qualitative research, which aims to reveal the emic perception of subculture in the post-industrial era through the eyes of its members themselves. The testimonies of skinheads about the current state of their subculture and its possible future development are then thoroughly analyzed and interpreted.
Commercial center Miris Garden in Croatia
Uherková, Jana ; Vintr, Jan (referee) ; Novák, Petr (advisor)
The subject of the bachelor thesis is the preparation of project documentation for building permits and documentation for construction implementation, based on the assignment provided in the 3rd year during the winter semester in the subject BGA 032 – Architectural Studio IV. The study focuses on the design of a new commercial center placed in the area of a newly planned holiday resort in Croatia. The addressed plot is located in the Croatian Dalmatia region, near the village of Stari Grad-Paklenica. Currently, the whole area is unused, undeveloped, and overgrown with wild vegetation. The architectural concept aims to create a building that responds to the sloping terrain of the plot and provides its future visitors with a sense and atmosphere of Croatian architecture. This is achieved through the use of stone cladding and wooden shading elements, which are typical materials for this region. The irregularly shaped building consists of two above-ground floors. The first floor is used for dining, commerce, and sports, while the second floor accommodates dining, services, administration, and entertainment. In contrast to the first floor, the second floor is more shallow, creating a walkable terrace from which individual units are accessible. The terrace also features outdoor seating for gastronomic establishments, complemented by wooden pergolas with sliding fabric shading. One of the dominant elements of the complex is the outdoor staircase connecting both floors. It is not only a guiding element but also reveals views of the sea and the setting sun. The design also emphasizes public spaces. In the front area of the commercial center on the northeast side, the space is divided into green islands with seating. These green islands, along with a water feature, complete the square in front of the commercial center facing the sea. The area also includes wooden pergolas with sliding fabric shading, resembling waves of the sea, providing a unique atmosphere.

Bradávka, Ondřej ; Palacký, Ivan (referee) ; Sládeček, Svatopluk (advisor)
The thesis deals with the construction of a new theatre for the amateur puppet theatre scene in the centre of Opava, in direct connection with the site of the existing historical building of the Silesian Theatre established by the city. The aim is not only to meet the predefined requirements for the theatre operation based on the planned capacity and context of the city centre, but to decide on the concept of the operation in this context independently and to determine the character of the premises and the possibilities of the operation in the current conditions of sustainability, evaluation of the current and future impact of the development of theatre technology and the development of performing arts as a whole.
Gallery of Modern Art in Brno
Knipiglová, Nina ; Doležal, Ondřej (referee) ; Novák, Petr (advisor)
The bachelor's thesis focuses on the design of a modern art gallery located in the city district of Brno-Center. The plot, with an elevation ranging from 205.200 to 207.100 meters above sea level, features an irregular layout. While the central location is advantageous, nearby roadways contribute to the noise in the local environment. The structure, consisting of five floors with two underground and three above-ground levels, is designed in accordance with the city's plan for mixed-use areas, taking into consideration the planned circular park. The main entrance is located on the first floor on the western side, featuring a large entrance hall, a café, a library, and office spaces. The second and third floors are designated for exhibition spaces, supplemented by rentable studio areas. The underground sections include double-decker garages and supply rooms. The design concept responds to the surroundings; the building's break follows the street line in the Kolište section, and the northern façade is parallel to the city hall. The building's façade is visually divided. The first above-ground floor is glazed with white plaster, while the other above-ground levels are covered with aluminum panels. The objective of the project is to integrate into the urban environment and provide a space that supports cultural and social activities in Brno-Center.
Providing culturally competent care in intensive nursing care
Current state: The provision of culturally congruent care is a critical aspect of nursing practice in all nursing settings, with particular complexities evident within intensive care units. We encounter patients from different cultures whose health condition is critical. Consequently, nurses should have appropriate knowledge and skills to provide quality culturally sensitive care. Objective of the work: 1. To map the level of cultural competencies among nurses in intensive nursing care. Methodology: The study was conducted using a quantitative research survey. The data collection technique employed was a questionnaire. Data collection technique was a questionnaire consisting of both non-standardized and standardized sections. Research sample: The research sample consisted of nurses from the ICU, CCU and IMCU departments in hospitals in the South Bohemian region. The size of the research sample was 137 respondents. Results of the work: The research results show levels of cultural competencies in various areas of cultural awareness, cultural knowledge, and skills. Nurses demonstrate a higher level of cultural knowledge rather than cultural skills. Nurses recognize the importance of providing culturally congruent care in intensive care and acknowledge the necessity of a lifelong process of acquiring knowledge in the field of cultural competencies. The majority of nurses are able to adapt their communication style to meet the needs of the patients, thus making their communication more effective. Implications for practice: This research emphasizes the importance of culturally congruent care and cultural competency in nursing practice. The results of this study will be disseminated in a professional journal article and conferences.
