Genius loci and the new urban structure
Sotolářová, Alžběta ; Erben, Adam (referee) ; Pavlovský, Tomáš (advisor)
The aim of this diploma project is to design new urban structure regarding current living standards. In close proximity of the historic centre of Trebíč, new residential blocks with additional purposes will be designed and the bus station will be adapted to current needs. Public spaces will be adjusted to focus primarily on people rather than cars. The urban design is based on the historical context of this site by following the original historical structure of the Stařečka buildings. The new blocks use a system of platforms which deals with the difference in terrain and enable placing parking and commercial space as part of the block. The platform also creates private closed courtyard for the inhabitants of the block. The space of the bus station is moved to the ground floor of one of the newly created blocks and its capacity is adjusted to the current needs. The street areas will be supplemented by greenery. Komenského square regain the character of a square instead of just a parking lot, it is moved and adapted to a pleasant public space for people with some public features. The Stařečský stream originally used to flow through this area, but nowadays is piped. The design restores it, brings it back to the ground and reinvolves it into the life of the city. The new Komenského square should not overshadow the existing main and representative Karlovo square in the city centre, but rather work as a local public space for residents to meet-and-greet. In the Polanka locality is newly designed a residential structure formed by blocks as well respecting surrounding buildings. The riverside or the river Jihlava is more implemented into the life of the city, there are riverbank steps and small terraces by the park of Polanka and on the other bank of the river that allows people to come closer to the river.
Design of a contemporary city district in the environment of the historic city.
Landa, Karel ; Obrtlík,, Jan (referee) ; Májek, Jan (advisor)
The assignment of the diploma thesis was set to design new structure inside of historic city, which in the past went through major changes due to construction of main road leading through and dividing it to the 2 parts by creating a psychological barrier. This road was built mainly because of the construction of nuclear plant Dukovany to transit its part and component via this road. Simultaneously the thesis assignment was to design new bus station to replace existing one which is oversized from its completion and to incorporate this bus station to the life of the city. In my proposal I was creating the city structure by using principles set by historic structure of the city adapted to modern normative requirements while finding new genius loci of the area, which is in my proposal created by uncovering the Stařečka stream, which was hidden by construction of bus station. Next goal of the proposal was to improve possibility to walk faster through city by creating shortcuts and paths for the main and most important users of the city which are the people.
Prague philharmonic building
Vrtílek, Osvald ; Plášil, Jiří (referee) ; Boháč, Ivo (advisor)
The diploma thesis on the Prague Philharmonic is based on the design of new concert halls for classical music, as well as other genres with additional functions alocated in one building. The site is located in Prague's Holešovice on the left bank of the Vltava River, near the transport route - Captain Jaroš Avenue. The site is delimited by the original development from the west, the river from the south, the railway viaduct from the west and new development from the north - this development is part of the planned reclamation of the Holešovice brownfield Bubny-Zátory, which has been implemented since 2000. The appearance of the created square results from the current state of preserved transport communications, while it also has the function of leveling the level differences by means of stairs on the north and east sides. The green islands in the square then define the course of pedestrian roads through the open space in front of the building. The shape of the building is derived from the shape of the main hall, located in the middle of the building, as a solid, non-transparent mass that grows from a transparent, light envelope in the shape of a low block. The facade is made by curtain walling from the glass panels of which are rhythmized in a ratio of 1: 2: 3 with alternating transparency. The building itself contains three concert halls - the main hall has an auditorium adapted to the type of vineyard, so it is possible to watch musical performances from all directions and yet offers unique acoustic conditions in terms of shape. The single-storey small hall has about half the capacity and is shaped into a shoebox type with a lower headroom, and the multifunctional hall has a screened floor on a hydraulic system, which ensures maximum adaptability to the type of event. In addition to the halls, there is a cloakroom in the spacious foyer, copying the floor plans of the main staircases, a café with refreshments and sanitary facilities. On the first floor, there is also music school with rehearsal rooms, a recording studio and a co-working workplace with seperated entrances. There are also separate spaces for commercial use. Most of the space runs from the first floor to the second, except for the northwestern part, where the music library is located. On the third floor, the foyer also serves as an exhibition space, around which on one side there is the administrative workplace of the Philharmonic and on the other a smaller cafe, a conference room for smaller events, and behind it VIP lounges. On the first underground floor there are garages and facilities for artists and the building itself - locker rooms, warehouses, tuning rooms, workrooms, studios and a rehearsal room. Garages continue to the second underground floor in one part and there are spaces for the technical equipment of the building in the other.

The Building on Obilní trh
Zámečník, Kristián ; Šerek, Jiří (referee) ; Františák, Luboš (advisor)
The Grain market is an unmissable public space in the image of Brno. However, its southern part has not yet been completed and hides a huge potential for the development of the city. The form of public administration and its authorities has long faced criticism. Examples of modern, open, flexible and sustainable public buildings are minimal. The social discourse is calling for them more and more strongly and architects must have a ready response. The aim of the bachelor thesis is to design a modern office building that will adequately complement the Grain Market space with its mass and will be an architectural manifesto for future state offices. The building will provide facilities for 200 civil servants, space for catering, promotion of the office‘s activities, accommodation for 20 guest workers and other necessary facilities to ensure the operation of the building.
The Building on Obilní trh
Jálová, Kateřina ; Ježková, Tereza (referee) ; Kratochvíl, Jan (advisor)
The Obilní trh is a notable public space in the image of the Brno city. Its southern part has not been completed yet, although there is plenty of potential for development of the city, or its public institutions. The form of public administration and its authorities are criticized for a long period of time. There are a minimum of examples of modern, open, flexible and even sustainable public buildings. The social discourse is calling for them louder and louder and architects must have the answer for this calling prepared.
The Building on Obilní trh
Hynšt, Lukáš ; Štěpánek, Martin (referee) ; Kratochvíl, Jan (advisor)
The current appearance of the surroundings of the Obilní trh, a square with a park situated nearby the city centre of Brno, isn’t unproblematic. Above all, on Údolní Street, between the tram stop and the Office of the Public Defender of Rights, there is an inadequate car park and a torso of a terraced building in an unsatisfactory condition. All this is a flaw in the beauty already represented by the park on the Obilní trh and the forest park adjacent to the Špilberk Castle. This work places the building of the Office of the Defender of Children's Rights - an institution that is to be established in the Czech Republic soon to control the progress of authorities, as well as other institutions that may interfere with the child's social and legal status instead of parking lots and neglected buildings. The solution is designed to be modern, open, and sustainable. With its idea and concrete form, it suggests that it welcomes children and their parents with open arms, but it is also a pleasant place for employees who implement the institution's powers daily. In addition to the "office" itself, the building and its surroundings offer parking, spaces for commercial use and for temporary accommodation. Its visual side suitably illustrates the surroundings full of greenery and the bustle of social life.
The Building on Obilní trh
Hladíková, Tereza ; Skála, Ondřej (referee) ; Kratochvíl, Jan (advisor)
The grain market is part of the city center of Brno. The grain market is a square with a park that overlooks the Špilberk hill. However, Údolní Street, as a connecting link between the center and the Grain Market, has several shortcomings. One of the key ones is the gap between the Ombudsman's office and the public transport stop. There is currently an unsuitable car park and several dilapidated houses on this gap. These houses are slowly being demolished due to their poor technical condition. An undeveloped gap in the Grain Market is a long-term problem that needs to be addressed. It is currently the property of the South Moravian Region. According to information, he does not currently intend to address this issue in the near future. In the future, he is interested in stopping it. This plan is in sight, but when it occurs, the City of Brno, which is interested in the plot, will also take part in this project. The building for the office of the South Moravian Region, or rather its branch, will be installed in the gap. The current headquarters does not have sufficient capacity and it completely lacks any conference center or place where unions could expand and add to more sections. The proposal and the overall idea to choose a branch of the regional office were created in consultation with the regional office. In the future, it is not expected that the current unions will disappear, but rather that sub-committees may begin to be selected and formed, thus creating the right to additional office space. The proposal also takes into account the space for catering for employees and the public. The idea of transparency allows the interconnection of individual structures. The bachelor's thesis will test knowledge in the areas of design of urban public spaces, office buildings, buildings for temporary housing, interior design and technical design of the building.

Fantová, Matylda ; Palkosková, Olga (advisor) ; Chejnová, Pavla (referee)
14. Summary This Bachelor Thesis focuses on the names of streets and squares of Prague 6. In the first few chapters, the author describes the history of street naming in general from 1770 until 2013. Furthermore, the work addresses the main reasons for renaming streets in Prague 6, which are mostly based on historical and/or social events and changes in the scope of Prague territory. The central part of this thesis contains the current list of streets and squares of Prague 6 accompanied by information about particular name changes occuring during the 20th and 21st century. The total of 662 streets and squares is arranged in alphabetical order according to their affiliation to various parts of the Prague 6 municipality. Additionally, streets are classified by naming motivation into several categories, which further discuss the origin of the names and their lexical form. The results showed that the street names of Prague 6 are mostly in nominative or genitive form and the most common motivation for their naming follows from the street location. The research carried out by the means of questionnaires shows that the most popular unofficial name used in Prague 6 is "Kulaťák" (replacing the official name Vítězné náměstí). Besides, the questionnaire revealed a few dozens of other popular colloquial street names....
