The Sustainable City: The Žižka Barracks in České Budějovice
Petečuk, Ondřej ; Zemen, Luboš (referee) ; Kratochvíl, Jan (advisor)
The subject of the diploma thesis is the proposal for the transformation of the former Žižkov barracks complex in České Budějovice. The area is located near the historical core. Currently, the complex is inaccessible to the public, and almost all buildings are vacant. The ensemble of buildings is not a cultural monument. The architectural-urbanistic study proposes a multifunctional urban development in the area. The theories of Aldo Rossi, Jan Gehl, and David Sim are applied in the urban design. The aim was to create conditions for construction that support the circular economy of building structures. The concept of these principles is demonstrated in the design of a community center building. Economic, social, and ecological values of the project are compared in the conclusion.
Social Impacts in Transport in the Aspect of the Circular Economy
KNÍŽETOVÁ, Alexandra
The aim of the work was to evaluate selected social impacts of transport in the aspect of the circular economy based on the performed analysis. Selected impacts include GDP, emissions and energy consumption in road freight transport. The fourth variable of the analysis is the transport performance of this transport. The research question focuses on the long-term links between the monitored variables, grouped into pairs. The chosen methodological procedure assesses the presence of a cointegrating relationship as a long-term link between variables. The strongest links were recorded between energy consumption and transport performance, and between emissions and transport performance. This results in a proposal to improve the situation, which is based on the principles of the circular economy, specifically on the preference for combined transport with lower energy and emission demands.

Residential Complex in Brno - Komín
Selnarová, Elisabeth ; Pospíšil, Zdeněk (referee) ; Boháč, Ivo (advisor)
Taking into consideration the slope of the terrain as well as the surrounding development, two types of residential buildings have been proposed: Komín a Komínek.They are placed in a regular structure into a given land. Sustainable development is at the core of the proposal. The residential buildings are proposed as sturctures created from multiple components. The framework is comprised of a reinforced concrete and the peripheral walls are stuffed with thermal insulating wooden panels. Air conditioned heating will be used (the air will be heated by a gas boiler). Due to the quality of the insolation, the houses are considered as low energy structures. As individual structures, each apartment has three sided orientation to cardinal direction. Some of the rooms have two sided lighting, which further increases their attractivness. The residential bulding is composed of Maisonette appartments, which together create asimilar structure. The fundamental space is intertwined with a ribbon that carries on its edges balconies, terraces or parking spaces. Each unit has a balcony, which allows the residence to relax and enjoy the surrounding landscape. The housing is proposed for a general audience (wider population). There are several types of appartments including no barrier appartments situated in the first floor as well as Maisonette appartments in the last floor.
Sustainable development from the perspective of the public sector
Klimeš, Zdeněk ; Hromádka, Vít (referee) ; Matějková, Jitka (advisor)
The thesis focuses on the evaluation of sustainable urban development. The theoretical part is processed as literature research, from which important indicators for the design of the methodology of sustainable development assessment of the city are derived. The research presents basic concepts related to the public sector, local government, sustainable development, and public investments. The core part of the thesis is the design a methodology to help local governments to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the city's sustainability. Additionally, it can serve as a basis for investment decision-making. This methodology is based on a multi-criteria analysis of selected key indicators that assess the functionality and sustainability of cities. The aim of this work is to offer cities a practical tool that will not only help with the assessment of the situation, but will also contribute to improving the sustainability of urban areas as centers and producers of significant economic, ecological, and social processes.
Healthy Living
Zhuravlyova, Yelena ; Koutný, Jan (referee) ; Peřinková, Martina (referee) ; Tušer, Jaroslav (referee) ; Urbášková, Hana (advisor)
Over the years, every major city turns into a knot of intractable problems: overpopulation, traffic jams, environmental degradation. Some countries make a faster conversion from an industrial development to an information growth phase, than the infrastructural changes take place. Therefore, environmental design and construction would not be short-termed, but rather will be the long-term targets for all the groups associated with the construction. The healthy living is one of the most important reasons to start a complicated long-term reconstruction of eco-cities. Successful ecological reconstitution requires a knowledge about already implemented exemplary solutions. For this purpose, the dissertation analyzes the basic ecological problems of settlements, analyzing the examples of approaches to improve the environmental performance of cities on the reference of foreign experience and creates criteria and principles for designing urban structures for healthy living in CR.
