The current intensive and industrial agriculture in the Czech Republic has many nega-tive impacts on the environment. Agroforestry, i.e. growing trees on agricultural land while maintaining agricultural production, can minimize these negative effects. Tree species grown in agroforestry systems (AFS) fulfil a productive function and at the same time provide important ecosystem services. The aim of this methodology is to define agroforestry, characterize individual types of AFS and estimate their extent in the Czech Republic. The aim is to provide background materials on the basis of which it is possible to establish agroforestry systems on agricultural land. The result is a clear definition, classification and characterization of different AFS in Czechia. Furthermore, their extension is estimated, and their historical roots explained. The methodology of establishment of AFS proposes a suitable design, list of suitable of woody species and describes the procedure of correct tree planting and management. An important part of the methodology is the analysis of the legislative environment for tree planting on agri-cultural land, economic evaluation of AFS and also the selection of suitable subsidy titles for such establishment. Last but not least, the methodology summarizes the existing capacity building and education in agroforestry in the Czech Republic.
Countryside 3.0
Přikrylová, Monika ; Kekel, Roman (referee) ; Kristek, Jan (advisor)
The proposal follows up on the undergraduate semester work which dealt with a topic of data centers - a lifestyle based on data circulation. Growing needs of city dwellers, coupled with the demand of constant connectivity, are reflected in the transformation of the landscape which is being occupied by gigantic data centers. Those data centres in the loopback reconfigure the environment of cities that use their instant and "unlimited" computing power. The landscape is becoming the engine room of digital urban life. The thesis develops social and environmental issues of "continuity between a city and a country” and outlines a problem of self-sufficiency and awareness of the energy intensity of current urban lifestyle. In my work I focus on one of the by-products of data centers. That is waste heat, which has a negative effect on the quality and lifespan of electronic components - it is undesirable. Data center entrepreneurs have found a way to divert unfavourable attention from the debate about the energy demand of big data. They transform waste into a desired commodity by replacing conventional forms of heating with a system newly based on the supply of waste heat. Therefore, they are becoming significant suppliers of thermal energy. The phenomenon of heat recycling neutralizes external criticism of big data by making urban life literally dependent on it. The sustainable future of data center operations takes place largely without critical debate. On the contrary, it confirms data production as a process that literally drives everyday life. This new wave of green techno-optimism and related implementations is shrouded in a discourse of innovation, environmental friendliness and smart data processing. The diploma thesis deals with the phenomenon of commodification of waste heat of a specific data center, and its potential for symbolic and material transformation of the urban environment. The critical dimension of this transformation allows visitors to literally experience first-hand the manipulation of the climate of a specific location - the new city market in Brno. Other issues arise in connection with the recycling of waste heat. What will happen when big data streams become a raw material to replace older forms of energy supply in an urbanized world? What will be the impact on the city´s heating, the economic and symbolic importance of data center entrepreneurs?
Mrňová, Petra ; Prokop, Tomáš (referee) ; Ambrůz, Jan (advisor)
In her work, the student focuses on the objectification of personal perception of a specific conflict situation. She identifies a hurtful feeling that has stuck in her memory and constantly raises questions. With ignorance or unconsciousness of where the edge is and where it is beyond the edge. Describes and seeks mantineles of self-insight capacity. Where does the ability to control begin and end? The author tries to empathize with people who cross her imaginary edges in what is right, and asks herself if they cross their own? The performative placement of tempered glass in the crown of a tree serves for a materialistic grasp of the limits: "what can be carried", "where is the edge", "what is capacity."
This Way That Place
Hašková, Tereza ; Trejbal, Jan (referee) ; Ambrůz, Jan (advisor)
The topic of the bachelor's thesis is the landscape in the student's place of residence. The concept of the bachelor's thesis is primarily the perception of the cultural landscape. Emphasis is put on artistic interventions with the socializing potential, which can be the reason for meeting the locals, sources of aesthetic experience, pleasant leisure time, walking or sports. The work has the ambition to reveal unusual perspectives, to offer possibilities and experiences with different perceptions of the village in the valley, for centuries formed in the logic of the local landscape and the resulting human needs. The tangible output of the bachelor's thesis is the locally unique work of art, a vantage point that will become part of the intended series.
Sports and Relaxation Centre Vsetín, Ohrada
Mozolová, Monika ; Vostrejž, Dušan (referee) ; Odvárka, Antonín (advisor)
The diploma thesis was preceded by a specialized atelier focusing on the urban – architectural design of the area of „Vsetín – Ohrada“. During this project, I was mainly focusing on the analysis of the area and the basic design. The project focuses on the area in the southern part of Vsetín. Its borders are formed by Vsetínská Bečva from the northwest side, the 1st class expressway from the northeast side and the waterworks building from the south. The main goal of the project is to attract more visitors to the quiet nature oriented area, who will be provided with a large number of outdoor and indoor activities that can be done in the area. The area is separated by a bridge and an industrial zone from the outskirts of the city and thus lacks a connection to urban development. The project is therefore designed as a separate urban unit, reflecting the natural aspects of the whole area. The advantage of the place is the previously mentioned river Bečva flowing directly through the area and a bike path lining the right bank of this river. Buildings with added soil to create slopes with hangout areas form, among other things, a noise and aesthetic barrier from the city, turning attention to the river and nature. The grass-covered slopes will be made of soil obtained from the current slopes of soil under the auditorium around the spartakiad stadium as well as the excavation work of the newly designed buildings. These slopes also visually unify the buildings, contribute to the organic and natural appearance of the entire design, create hangout areas for spectators and add back the grass areas that were taken away because of the construction of the buildings.
Agroforestry - potential for regional development and sustainable rural landscape
Krčmářová, Jana ; Bahenský, František ; Brendzová, Alica ; Kala, Lukáš ; Szabó, Péter
The aim is to evaluate the benefits and constraints of using agroforestry systems (AFS) in Czechia with a focus on the socio-economic, legal and environmental context. The project will evaluate planting of trees on arable land in areas affected by soil erosion and drought, and animal husbandry combined with tree components. Based on detailed literary review, socio-ethnological surveys, production and economic data gathered from farmers, the AFS benefits on the agricultural land will be fully evaluated. Furthermore, legislative constrainst and opportunities for tree growing on agricultural land will be analyzed. The final outputs will be the scientific publications and, in particular, the documents (methodologies) for the application and implementation of the agroforestry system in Czechia.
Landscaping and other limits. (The Prehension of the landscape in the Art and Art Education throught exploration of the fine art)
Zástěrová, Alena ; Velíšek, Martin (advisor) ; Daniel, Ladislav (referee)
/ a b s t r a c t This thesis deals with the environment of the landscape in connection to movements of the body and of the mind which result in an art gesture. It closely focuses on an individual experience of a landscape as a unique environment. It explains concepts and speculates about their meanings. Through interviews, the thesis presents different approaches to art from plethora of artists, who work in and with the landscape. It deals with a didactic project which aspires to inspire students to think more deeply about the environment that surrounds them and to communicate their understanding o fit through art. Personal artworks created in Finland in the Arctic Circle region capture motion in the landscape of the nature and that of the mind.
Painting as matter
Nováková, Kateřina ; Velíšek, Martin (advisor) ; Kornatovský, Jiří (referee)
Kateřina Nováková- Painting as matter ABSTRACT In my thesis I focus on painting and its material overlap. I no longer only observe paintings by sight, alone, I also use touch. As a result, the optical smoothness of the painting is disrupted and emphasis is placed on matter, structure and relief. I focus on the distinctive painter's footprint, impasto and gestic painting. I reflect on different approaches to landscape painting, and in the context of work I accentuate those who work with color as matter. I present the specifics using examples of artwork of selected artists. It is evident from the overview that the 20th century paved the way for material experimentation. In it, is the focus of the practical section of my thesis, i.e. my own piece of artwork. The series of images is a painting that extends from the two-dimensional to the three-dimensional, giving the images a plastic character. For this purpose, I use painting and non-painting materials. I adhere to the theme of an abstractly conceived landscape inspired by everyday objects. In the didactic section of the thesis, I propose and then undertake three varied tasks, connecting painting and a landscape element in an artistic function.
The significance of Landscape planning study for Prague's hinterland
Šmída, Jakub ; Perlín, Radim (advisor) ; Šantrůčková, Markéta (referee)
The master's thesis deals with landscape planning study which is a new instrument of spatial planning in Czechia. Main goal of the thesis to analyse the document's creation process and to evaluate a potential of utilization of the study by public sector. The evaluation includes intelligibility of the study, motivation on the side of the public sector as a contracting authority and a form of cooperation of authors and contracting authorities, municipalities, the public or other entities. Another partial goal of the thesis is to assess an accordance with European Landscape Convention, which is declared in a methodological instruction of the landscape planning study. Which is a document that should serve as a basis for decision making in the public sector. Four landscape planning studies made for districts of municipalities with extended powers which are in Prague's hinterland were chosen as model cases. After semantic analysis of the text of the chosen planning studies of landscape semi-structured interviews with representatives of author teams and contracting municipal offices followed. Interviews were then evaluated using qualitative research methods. The effect of total of eight factors on the potential of utilization of the study was examined. Main findings are that key factors are motivation of...
Water management in a physical plan
Pospíšilová, Nikola ; Perlín, Radim (advisor) ; Hrabák, Jiří (referee)
The Master's thesis responds to the current challenge of the Czech landscape - reflecting its adaptation to climate change. At the local level, according to Czech legislation, the instrument forming the landscape should be primarily the physical plan, which was therefore selected as the subject of interest for this work. The work examines the possibilities of the physical plan in the field of water management by means of a case study focused on five municipalities in Vysocina region. The aim of this work is to verify whether spatial planning in the Czech environment responds to climate change, and thus whether it participates in responsible landscape water management. Firstly, the work analyzes the expected climate changes, their impact on the Czech landscape and approaches of society to these changes. Another part of the work is devoted to spatial planning, its tools and possibilities in the formation of landscape. In the practical part of the work, two qualitative research methods are used. The first is a semantic analysis of municipal spatial plans, the second chosen method are semi-structured interviews with representatives of public administration. The results of both methods show that the physical plan rather permits water management. Near natural measures are in the physical plans expressed...
