The supervising teacher of the Thesis chose two bulidings to be the subject of solution, which were used as warehouses of cocoons. These are the biggest buildings of the premises as for the volume, which stand out for their impressing construction and their area (1493,1 & 1486,6 m2). The distance between them is aprox. 125 m. The systém of construction is the same in both the buildings, it is a wooden timber reinforced brick masonry frame in modular size of 3,6 x 6,15 m. The constructive height of street floor of building A is 4,4 m, building B 3,85 m. The clearence of bulinding A is 3,85 m and for building B 3,27m. The clearance of second floor in both objects is 4,84m. The existing inner staircase has one arm and is of 54 cm in width. There is a cargo lift on its … covered by … for the connecting the floor areas. … … of both the building forms together with wooden pillars elements also … . The windows of 160 cm width are set rytmicaly in three consecutive rows, they ensure max lighting of the interior of the buildings. The roofing of the buildings is made from wooden frame structure and covered by tiles. The roof construction is not covered from bottom and therefor they make an impression of one of the most striking elements in the interior.

Conversion of dormitory to hostel and new design of hotel, Tomioka Silk Mill, Japan
Brezovský, Jindřich ; Zemánek, Václav (referee) ; Zemánková, Helena (advisor)
Diploma thesis called “CONVERSION OF DORMITORY TO HOSTEL AND NEW DESIGN OF HOTEL, TOMIOKA SILK MILL JAPAN“ was elaborated according to the regulations in the form of architectural study. The topics of this thesis were two variants of possible conversion of accommodation for workwomen (dormitory). The partial assignment comprised solution to the arrangement of greenery in the atrium of the dormitory, and revitalization of plateau. The building is located in the premise of a former silk mill in the city Tomioka in the Gunma prefecture on the Honshu island in Japan. The conversion of the building for the novel purpose required replenishment of necessary facilities, and some building interventions to assure operation of the hostel. In both variants, partial adjustment of the original building was needed. However, all changes had to maintain proportions and volume of the building not to compromise the original concept of whole premise as well as the skyline of the city. The adjustments of the original building of dormitory consisted of a completion of the entrance portal including a foyer, and a reception with the base of operation. Large glass areas in combination with exposed concrete were used as construction materials. These materials were selected so that the new structures (monolithic ferroconcrete) are clearly distinguishable from original ones (wood). The Internal atrium was designed in the style of modern japan garden with various types of surfaces (vegetation – moss; mineral – gravel and stones). Variant 1 – the new constructions of the two facility buildings. Building A is washroom building, and building B is catering building with toilets. The volumes of individual objects were formed by simple prisms rotated by 30° a 60° against axis of dormitory. These volumes complied with dimensions of the original building. The building A protruded on the edge of the slope, and it was paneled with glass plates. The building B was glassed-in from the south, while the northern side was constructed from exposed concrete in a compact way. The building A was divided to two symmetric parts by a central wall for both structural and functional purposes. At the end of the building, there was an ofuro (swimming pool) providing views of the surrounding mountains. Typological solution of the building B included separate toilets with a mixed washroom, which were located in the northern part of the building. In the southern part, the space for catering was divided to an operational space, and a space for visitors by a dispensing counter. The building A was from reinforced concrete and was founded on the base plate. The central wall represented the main load-bearing structural element that prevents transverse breakage. The central wall was anchored into the ground with piles. The building B was also from reinforced concrete and was based on the strip foundations. Variant 2 – the extension was formed as a simple prism that complied with the rectangular system of the premise and dimensions of the original dormitory building. Employed materials of the new constructions were concrete and glass similarly to the other new extensions. To ensure intimate environment, the glass part of a façade was enclosed by a bamboo fence. This space was also used as a viewable green garden. The building was typologically divided to the parts for women and men. Both parts were equipped with ofuro. The building was monolithic ferroconcrete skeleton based on the footings.

Havlík, Jan ; Zemánek, Václav (referee) ; Zemánková, Helena (advisor)
The Tomioka Silk Mill, an extraordinary industrial heritage in the Prefecture of Gunma on the Honshu island, is waiting to be included to the List of Unesco (nowadays is only on the List Tentative). Former factory, documenting the integration of French technology and Japonese architecture, was realised on the principle of classical factory zoning. The conversion of the mill, aiming at multiple-municipal functions, is reflected in a new urbanistic conception of the area in the municipal context. The project proposes and checks functional zones for users and sightseeing routes for turists. The part of that is evaluating the potential of the mill objects, of the landscape of the mill and of the functional municipal relations.

Dolkošová, Vendula ; Zemánek, Václav (referee) ; Zemánková, Helena (advisor)
Both existing buildings of designed Training Center are situated on the southern edge of the Tomioka Silk Mill above the steep river side. It is former dormitory for female workers and a house of the first manager of the factory Paul Brunat. Preparation of registration of the factory as UNESCO World Heritage Site and its subsequent functional transformation raises the need for trained professionals. Lot of organizations from surrounding area are now studying topic of the Tomioka Silk Mill. Thematic lectures about silk industry, history of the Tomioka Silk Mill and related sites, seminars, workshops and training of guides and other voluntaries, preparation and discussion of propagation of the mill, international conferences of experts of industrial heritage and silk production from all around the world and experts from Gunma prefecture, exhibitions and other events could take place in the new Training Center. Dormitory Rooms for seminars, lectures and offices for temporary teachers are situated in the southern block of former dormitory. In the other block, rooms for short-term accommodation stay in original condition of traditional Japanese style. Connection of waterfront and training center has been achieved through increase of entrances into the training rooms and restroom from the south of the building. This narrow strip of ground is settled by elevated terraces and green areas planted with bamboo. Building of the training center expanded to a new hygienic block on the west side. Part of it slightly exceeds above the river and creates observation terrace and it also makes the walking passage wider. Green atrium is situated between two blocks of dormitory. Brunat House Brunat house is designed for conferences and administration. The first manager has used this object as residence only a few years and then its use was changed to a school for workers of the mill. In addition to the main hall there is entrance foyer, dressing room, sanitary facilities and cafe bar. Administrative body of the Tomioka Silk Mill – the Tomioka Silk Mill Division is situated in the western block of Brunat house. Other activities of this office are: area and building maintenance, care of visitors, guides training, research and works related to world heritage registration. They also collaborate with Gunma government office World Herritage Registration Promotion Division and other experts. Waterfront Waterfront with southern sunlight is ideal for creating place for relax connected to surrounding functions of museum and training centre. Relax waterfront should offer calm corners, opportunity for sitting or lying on the southern sunlight and also nice viewpoint on the mountains surrounding the Tomioka city. It should connect Japanese nature with industrial environment and western style, as it was in the time of establishment of the factory. Training Centre should meet the needs of local organization and also experts from all around the world. Therefore it should be mix of Japanese and western culture.

Naumov, Danila ; Smetana, Michal (advisor) ; Martinková, Viera (referee)
This Master's thesis analyses the perceptions international disarmament NGOs have on Japan's role in the nuclear disarmament regime. The research aims to examine the positions of the leading nuclear disarmament NGOs on various points in their relationship to Japan, but also to the Treaty on Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, which serves as the framework of interaction for between NGOs and Japan. For the purpose of drafting conclusions based on comparison and analysis of it, several variables are operationalised - such as strategies NGOs employ in their advocacy efforts, their expectations of Japan's ratification of the TPNW or the factors they believe prevent Japan from ratifying the treaty - and elaborated upon through scholarly literature on the topic of international norms and NGOs in general. Interviews and official documents, such as annual reports or proclamations of the NGOs, are used as the main source of data for analysis. In the conclusion, the author outlines the findings and how they contradict original expectations or confirm them. He drafts a few possible scenarios for the further development of NGOs strategies within the TPNW, based on the study of Japan's case.
