Buzová, Magdaléna ; Kraus, David (referee) ; Galeová, Nicol (advisor)
The objective of the diploma thesis is the new building of Cancer Prevention Centre, first of its kind in the Czech Republic. The site is located on steep terrain of the south hillside of Žlutý kopec in Brno, which is a part of Masaryk Oncological Hospital complex. The aim of the Cancer Prevention Centre is to attract the citizens’ attention and invite them to undergo a preventive medical check-up with the potential to save hundreds of lives every year. The project takes this fact in consideration and strives to find ways leading not only towards establishing new relationship between the building and the public, but also towards connecting the city centre and nearby by residential area with the hospital complex. The three volumes of the buildings create a dynamic composition and therefore complete the characteristic development of Masaryk Oncological Centre. The main concept however revolves around the motive of instability, balance and journey which are all linked to tumour diseases.

TOMEK’S SQUARE + CIRCUIT Bypass. Traffic. Cars. Chaos. Barrier. Will the project of new upper-level highway influence the functioning of Tomek’s square in a negative way? Will it become a big barrier which separates all of the surrounding into several isolated fragments? The urbanistic concept adds another local circuit to the Outer Brno Bypass which is designed especially for the pedestrians and which by its bright colour eases their orientation in such chaotic space. It also underlines all the attractive landmarks in the area - riverbank of river Svitava, Husovický hill, Sokol's sports grounds and new flea market situated under the bridge of Outer Brno Bypass. Centre of the circuit lies in Tomek's Square - current chaotic junction. TOMEK´S SQUARE – SPACE The concept works with idea of creating a new public space which the current Tomek's square lacks, it also reacts to its hectic situation by creating the oposite environment. Pedestrian circuit connects the surrounding areas, especially the new flea market linked to the new public space by lengthening supporting wall that defines borders of the flea market. TOMEK´S SQUARE – LIVING Composition of the corner footprint is inspired by the buldings in the current Tomek's Square. It respects its features by leaving the plan opened while clearly defining its inner courtyard. Therefore a new form consisting of four standalone buildings is created. Three of the objects serve as student's residence. They are connected by terraces with outdoor sport facilities. The fourth one serves as a hostel, an affordable option for temporary living. All of four objects' back sides are facing the new highway while being completely open on the opposite facade using balconies.
