Architecture of the extreme
Atcheson, Eva Clara ; Wlazel, Adam (referee) ; Kaftan, Martin (advisor)
Architecture of the Extreme, Desert Shed, is a search for as many aspects of extremity of site-specific design for the Northern-Nevada desert as possible. Physical, geographical and climate extremity, absence of urbanism, scale and architectural context. Psychological and sociological extremity of solitude and abandonedness, but also co-sharing of architecture and ownership of the un-surveillanceable. Extremeness of the economical situation and its development, extreme transformations of the phenomena of second homes and their usage throughout time and into the future. Dialogue between sedentary and nomadic. What does recreational living for a contemporary family in an extreme situation at an extreme location look like and what sort of scenarios must it be prepared for, once the architect is out of the picture?
Earth rough cast and topping coat at rammed-earth monolithic masonry
Novotný, Martin ; Všianský, Dalibor
The submitted historic preservation´s procedure offers an instruction for the production and application of earth rough cast and topping coat for rammed-earth monolithic masonry. After getting necessary skills, the submitted description of the building procedure is very effective within the hand-made production. Both connected layers of plaster are identical as to their material; the only difference consists in the ratio of admixtures added to the basic raw material. While making replicas of the buildings construction using the rammed-earth technique, the below-described procedure seems to be effective. The rough cast (commonly called as špric) is a connecting bridge between the masonry and the plaster. The rough earth plaster is to plane possible masonry unevenness that developed during the construction, and to make a ground for the fine final plaster.

Earthen Plaster (cob) on Timber Framing of Traditional Buildings: preparation, application and maintenance
Novotný, Martin
The submitted methodology presents an instruction to produce and apply earthen plaster cob on log houses, or on walls made from woven lattices of wooden strips. After gaining necessary routine and skills, the submitted building technique is very effective for manual work. The submitted technique is intended for the application of two-layer anchored and not-anchored earthen plaster (cob). Anchored plaster is applied on an anchoring lattice made on wall structure, using small wooden pegs driven into log house´s beams. Not-anchored plaster is applied directly on the wall, without the anchoring lattice. The plaster is applied in two layers, whereby the first (rough) layer contains longer particles of organic origin (chaff, cut straw). When making replicas and copies of buildings which are constructed using the log technique and provided with earthen plaster, the below described procedure seems to be effective. Earthen plaster is a protective and decorative layer on the walls.

Evaluation of objects in Kurial's archive in the area of Uherské Hradiště /extended to include listed objects/
Korčáková, Alžběta ; Mgr.Dr.Jitka Matuszková (referee) ; Ing.arch.Dušan Riedl,CSc. (referee) ; Ledinská, Jarmila (referee) ; Žabičková, Ivana (advisor)
The goal of this doctoral thesis is to map and evaluate the current situation of folk architecture in the region around the city of Uherské Hradiště on the example of selected villages. Later, these findings will be compared with the archive of prof. Antonin Kurial. The text has been extended to include currently listed buildings and output of this work is a new catalogue of buildings of folk architecture in the above mentioned region.

The main subject of the thesis is the development of the architectural study of the new Zoo entrance pavilion in Dvůr Králové. This Zoo specializes in breeding of African animals. The emphasis is placed on wide program of associated functions, on exhibition and multipurpose premises with restaurants and facilities for the visitors. Prerequisite is usage of progressive and unconventional principles of exhibiting with application of newest technologies in order to inform visitors of the main theme - Africa, before they start the tour around the zoo.
Possibilities of clay plasters shrinkage elimination
Melichar, Jindřich ; Koplík, Jan (referee) ; Opravil, Tomáš (advisor)
Earth plasters which are applicated in interiers don´t have just an estetic, but mainly heat storage function. To accomplish better storage properties the plaster has to be laid on the wall in sufficient thick ply. But this use to be accompained by creating of cracks during dehydration of the plaster. This bachelor work will be considering possibilities of elliminating this negative event by additing suitable components to suppress shrinkage and cracks by creating ettringite.
Handmade unburnt bricks
Novotný, Martin ; Všianský, Dalibor
The submitted methodology offers an instruction for the simplest ever production of unburnt bricks. This production uses bottom-less moulds; the bricks are shaped on the ground and after the mould is removed, they are sun-dried in the place in which they were made. The aim is to make a clear instruction that allows to make high-quality building elements intended especially for replicas of historic buildings at open-air museums. After getting necessary skills, the submitted description of the building procedure is very effective within the hand-made production.
