DYNAMIC HOUSE diploma project
Are nowadays life tempo and needs reflected by ordinary city houses? Is Airbnb just a negative phenomenon? Is there a current architectural form based on the new wave of using the traditional city structure? The diploma project Dynamic House is one answer how to keep the modern life style reflected by the architectural form. The predicted increase of the future’s dynamic and temporary usage collides with the traditional static architectural form of houses in the past. The Dynamic House is not focussing just on one fixed function but by the flexible and open plan offering a variety of possible usage. The Dynamic House could transform to offices, flats, galleries,... Could be inhabited for days, weeks, months, years,... Situated in the very city centre of Prague The Dynamic House is situated at an attractive plot that is devaluated by heavy car pollution. Speculating on short time usage The Dynamic House is able to stand the consequences of heavy traffic and by its volume protect and offer a new public island to the city. The Dynamic House is transforming the quality of traditional neighbour relationship to the quality of open public space where people could meet, share and go. The project was disscussed with IPR (Prague Institute of Planning and Development). leaded by Prof. Akad. arch. Ing. arch. Jiří Suchomel Winter 2017 - Spring 2018

The Dynamic House - ideology/new typology II. vizuál Státní opera III. Piazzetta
It is hard to not see the change of current lifestyle habits. The phenomenon of leaving the physical based reality and exodus to the digital world is somehow less and less an intellectual claim but more and more the everyday fact. In the fields of architecture is this move recognisable in new ways how the traditional 19th century city structure is used. Applications like Airbnb and Uber are one example how the digital tool could change the usage of the old physical base. In the beginning of defining the topic for the diploma project the idea of post-airbnb typology was very present. Is there a need for a new city house that is reflecting this application and predicting some new styles of house utility use? The project of The Dynamic House was developed in several steps. The first one was the choice of designing a new house for living (means house of flats) in the radical city centre and with leaving the ambition of typical middle class lifestyle for cozy and calm living. By that new possibilities of lifestyle appear. Neighbour friendship is not a necessary demand in this house, it is focussing on short time periods of living and with that comes some new quality of co-existence: inspiration, cultural exchange, travelling,... The idea of short time period is also reflected in the structure of the house. The simple skeleton with its cores is offering a possibility to change the use. With the acceptance of short time usage that kind of typology could be located to a plot with heavy traffic pollution and take up the city centre position.
Location The Dynamic House is situated in the very city centre. The triangular plot is located near by Wenceslas Square, close to the National Museum, the State Opera and close to the Federální shromáždění which used to be a house where the Czechoslovakian Parliament was based. The Main Train Station of Prague is around the corner. The plot is defined by three important streets (Wilsonova, Wasingtonova, Politických věznů) of which the street Wilsonova is basically a highway - one of the most used city roads for automobile traffic. The plot is now mainly used as a parking lot and was recently considered as a possible area for a new development by the city planning.
Urban concept The form of The Dynamic House is shaped by several influences. The house’s footprint shape reminds of the letter L following two main streets (Wilsonova, Politických věznů). The L shape volume is on one side carefully following city geometry (leaving the visual dominance for the important and respectful institutions) by its footprint shape and by the height of the volume. This urban shaping is creating an open public space which could be seen as an extension of Wasingtonova street to the centre of the plot. The Dynamic House its ends narrowing sharply, its using the plot to the very end. The arrow which is almost touching Wenceslas Square is an urban claim for the plot having three facades facing three main roads. This choice is generating a clear urban shape. The volume of the house is perforated. This step is mainly led by the idea of keeping visual connection from the street Wasingtonova.
The house has one floor of underground parking. univerzální modul
The parterre of the house is mainly orientated to the calm piazzetta and it is offering a normal city standard (restaurants, shops, even lift to the Prague underground).

výstavní prostor (dvě podlaží)
The entrances to the building are orientaed to the piazzeta. From the piazzeta it is also possible to get to the holes an extension of public space. There is always two functions connected to the holes - work (open co-work) and the bar/ coffee place. The main usage of the house consists of flexible units that could transform from flats to offices - it is possible to connect them to larger areas.
obchod s módou (dvě podlaží)
The south side of the house is defined in direct connection to the heavy traffic (but offering an unique view). parking
Variability of floorplans
By the rotation of interior floorplans it is possible to achieve two qualities: a double glass facade that offers sound protection by the balconies. The rotation also allows to welcome the west sun even at the north facade.

In 2016 one of the largest unbuilt plot in the city centre of Berlin were tested for new development in international student competition. Endless and never finished city. City block on this left, city block on the right. New addition the the city is not leaded by the mastermind of designer but is drawn by the tectonics forces of the surrounding. Volumes are defined by the will of the place. It is some kind of automatic architecture, when other houses pointing where should be another wall. Of course some choices must be done, but the main structure came up like that. Project furthermore follow the logic of automatism: dancing on the edge of repeating (same facade) and individuality (different spaces).

Self-design house Berlin is based on traditions of destroying and re-building. It is consisted of large blocks. The city has no beginning and has no end. It is an endless “rolling stone” made by houses. The plot is situated in Kreuzberg. It is unusual large non-used area close to city centre. The plot has a famous history - it used to be a popular squat - camp. The task was to design here a large program. The plot should be used by young people, students: hostel, permanent housing, dormitory and supplying functions: water area, gym, bar, playing zone. Design XY appeared by ownself. Following the surrounding lines the house was designed by others houses by the “rolling stones” energy principle. This project is an automatic architecture. The ambition is to incorporate not to dominate. The project is some kind of tryout for searching for an answer if the function should be readed form outside or if the endless mass of housing actually reaching another truthful expression. The house has two faces. One go to the city - a black facade with ordinary appearance, and the second - wooden inner face that can show differences of scales and spaces inside the block.
ISLAND OF BENAR
Hrádek nad Nisou, small Czech city based on industry, consisted of two independent structures: houses and factories. As if in the city are based several autonomic cities of factories. Industry felt, structures remain. What is the potential of isolation? The answer we found is that isolation or independent structure has main potential in an possibility of alternative environment to the surrounding. In new usage of old factory called Benar, placed close to city centre of Hrádek, we tried to combine both qualities of Hrádek: on one hand keeping logic of independent factory structure on the other reaching connection to the city by adding new objects which follows scale of the rest of the city.

Evolution of Benar factory
Hrádek nad Nisou as many others cities in the region around Liberec - north part of Czech republic - was fundamentally connected to industry. Hrádek consists of two main parts: ordinary city structure and industrial areas. These closed factory areas are separated from the rest of Hrádek city structure. They are a kind of cities in the city.
Tři centra tři centra third centre Tři centra (new Benar) tři centra
Centrum centrum centrum Centrum
Benar is one of these places. Closed to city centre, cutted from the city, without any urban connection.
Main concept of new use of Benar is based on refinding the potential of past: on the one hand can be separation seen as quality - it is an alternative part of city, with own urban logic and own spirit.
Re-using of Benar is based on paradox: independent cluster which offering unique function, scale and clear border (by consistent language of the facades following logic city in the city) - but also by perforation of new volumes following logic of structure of Hradek and becoming part of it.

BZĂ? On the search of genius locci of Liberec region
BzĂ is a small village closed to Liberec. As most of others villages is nowadays fighting with loosing of own economic sustainability. Old tradition of living in house and working on fields has pasted. As a church is a symbolic building that is connecting human to the God, bus station connects villager to the city and also citizer to the nature. New house - a kind of bus stop - is placed on plot of the old shop. In fist floor are to public function: a grocery and little sauna. In the second floor are two kinds of accommodation. The first is for tourist, it is an apartment for travellers. Second accommodation is designed for long term staying. The house has no window just a hole, an portal between city and village.

The task was to design a multifunction hall for Electro company to existing old buildings. The area which were given for this purpose is consisted of two main spaces: old storage and garage. These two spaces are two independent structures attached one to another. We decided to connect these to spaces in one (together 410m2). By cutting the walls in logic that follows structure of each space we reached awkward line of unordered columns as a rest of two individual buildings. In one big space are added four mirrorish boxes, that makes subdivisions of one unique space and also do reflections of cutting intervention.

FUA 02 / FUA 20
In team of three friends we created in 8 mounts two books, 800 pages all together. The books are about the school were all of three were studying at that time. Faculty of architecture of Technical university of Liberec just had 20 years anniversary and we were asked to create one book about the past (FUA20 - telling the story of the school from the beginning) and second one just about the last year (FUA02 - mainly presenting projects from last year). The structure of FUA20 is based on 4 main period. Each period covers 5 year of evolution of the school and each period starts with interview with student which had been studding at that time. All together the book tells story how form 90â€™s hype for future and modernity school approach switched to local intimate topics. Our school is really interesting, the books were printed almost without any check from the leadership. That is Liberec punky freedom.

2x 100MIL M2 CZECH PAVILION - 14TH BIENNALE DE VENEZIA (Absorbing modernity - Rem koolhaas)
Almost one year project really started when we won the competition for Czech pavilion. It was summer 2013 and it was my first practise in the office. Martin, the leader of the office, worked for Rem almost 5 years and we took the call for understanding last 100 years of evolution of Czech architecture quite seriously. The decision was to focus on housing and the main reason for this was quite simple: it is the most frequent program. With OMA research technique we tried to discover patterns behind Czech story of 100 years of housing. After summer the project moved to school and in team of other 12 students we searched in main cities of Czech republic, create a map, that showing what kind of amount housing was built in last 100 years, also based 6 main urban structures that are crucial for understanding the evolution of Czech housing.

Oči většiny těch, kteří celý život tahají na monitoru vektorové čáry, dnes na jednom místě - na ostrově, v Itálii, sledují jak jednotivé země odpoví na otázku od kurátora Rema Koolhaase, tedy jak se za posledních 100 let stala z charakterově lokálních architektur architektura společná, globální? V pětičlenném týmu jsme za srpen provedli research a vytvořili návrh pavilonu a v celorepublikové soutěži jsme vyhráli. Pavilon České a Slovenské republiky odpoví skrze typologii bydlení. Stroj se rozběhl, půl roku v Liberci zkoumá patnáctičlenný tým pod vedením kurátora jednotlivé kraje, demografie, vývoje měst, jejich fenomény a anomálie. Projíždím na streetviewu Prahou a snažím se datovat jednotlivé bytové domy. Tak jako někdo vedle mne projíždí Plzní. Skládali jsme příběh. Druhý semestr z patnácti studentů zbyli dva. Projekt převzali jiní: teoretici, grafici, umělci a především kurátor. Námi vygenerovaná data dostávají tvar: výstavní, tak i knižní.
