The problem of joining two river banks of the river Danube. Our aim: the distance about 300 metres without secondary support system.

Landscape Top view and Axonometry

Is it possible? The sorting out of the problem was brought by special steel construction from massive bridge girder /size 5000 x 3000 mm/. The primary carrying skeleton is composed from three girder rods the most suitable solution to achieve a strong static construction. The groove surface is specific sign of the bridge, which fulfils the existing infrastructure of public space. New leisure- time activities areas and foot- communication are available for public. The city center is absenting the possibilities where to relax, sit, meet.. The structure brings new occasions how to spend lunch break or free time...

Three rods - three ways to go The position of rods is a result of static solution. Space between rods is filled with city center absentig possibilities for spending a free day by the river Danube.

What to do? Sit, run, relax, bike, skate, enjoying evening or just walk throught

Why three rods? The skeleton is a firm static frame after deformations and interconnections. The massive proportions of the bridge girder is the purpose of no additive secondary support system over 300 m. The deformation of the main supporting Arch. The “zig-zag� form is needed to connect the main load bearing rods of the skeleton. The appropriate combination of 3 steel girder rods achieves a static firm construction. The primary skeleton concluding 2 hanging rods and the main bearing one - central arch. No secondary support system over 300 m. The heigh of the shipping channel is 10 000 mm.

CONTAINER / HOUSEBOAT HOUSEBOAT / CONTAINER Led by Miloslav Mudroncik Ján Kohút / 2.nd grade / AFAD 2004

Houseboat Plan

Design of temporal water level housing for two people, firmly secured in backwater or slow flowing water. Housetboat exterior is designed as ship cargo container, while the interior is designed as a full transitional housing. Width of houseboat equals double width of shipping container/ 2,5 m/, the final dimensions of 10 x 5 x 3 m are standardized by the internal requirements for comfortable living space. During the occupation the houseboat is open of its four sides to the exterior /by collapsing door/, unutilized it is a closed cargo container.

SKYSCRAPER STORY Bachelor´s Degree Level. Led by Imrich Vaško and Sabah Shawkat. Ján Kohút/ Grade/ AFAD 2006

Construction boom in Bratislava city after year 2000 has brought a redefinition of the old industrial district to the new business quarter. The proposal implies the mixed program, it combines shopping, business and housing units. The upper part of the building is allocated for a luxury residential apartments. There is a restaurant on the very top floor with bar providing view for visitors. Characteristic feature of the skycraper is a console, protruding eighteen meters in front of tower. This solution is possible using a selfsupporting facade, as the main structural element. occasions how to spend lunch break or free time...

Skyscraper Design

What is it? It was an ordinary flight from Dubai to Bratislava, as usual... ...but suddenly, approaching the airport...

And there it is! New city dominant. The face of the tower has to be shift further beyond street line. The head of the building is pulled up to the sky.

..there was something 200 meters tall in the flight corridor. It had 37 500 sqm and 50 storeys

Therefore! The ovetrall heigth of that something has to be reduced for more than 50 meters considering the flight corridor! Let´s take lower 50 meter tall part and upper 20 meter tall part and rotate with them.

The height is reduced to 130 meters by translation and rotation by 90 degrees in front of the tower body and creates a distinguishable C shaped tower

VladimĂ­r Dedecek Opening of the exhibition, July 10, 2009

VLADIMÍR DEDECEK EXHIBITION Exhibition of Vladimír Dedecek, held in the Slovak National Gallery. Led by Bedjamín Bradnansky, Vít Halada, Monika Mitášova and Marián Zervan. Ján Kohút, Grade/ AFAD 2008

The exihibition of Vladimír Dedecek, the most important architect of the past century in Slovakia took place in the Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava on July 10, 2009 Vladimír Dedecek was born in Martin in 1929. He studied architecture at the Slovak Technical University under professors Emil Belluš and Vladimír Karfík. He began his professional career in 1955 and till the end in 1994 more than 75 buildings has created. He is linking with Slovak Socialist Realism in architecture. Vladimír Dedecek is the author of a few controversial buildings from the communist era, such as the Higthest Court in Bratislava, Political school in Modra or University of Agriculture in Nitra, where false interpretations and seeking a parallel to Oscar Niemeyer´s New Brasília and Luigi Nervi´s Palazetto dello Sport appeared. The other one is the Slovak National Gallery. It’s brutal and elegant facade is for majority of burghers a symbol of Socialism and regarding shape of the building and used material the most unpopular building in the city. Despite of many critical opinions is Vladimír Dedecek among professionals both from Slovakia and outland considered the greatest person of slovak architecture of the last century.

THESIS 2010 THE FOURTH QUADRANT Led by Imrich Vaško and Martin Gsandtner Ján Kohút/ Grade/ AFAD 2010

General aim of thesis concerns urbanization of the Fourth quadrant area, using parametric design methods. The fourth quadrant is a name of a non- urbanized southwest area of Petržalka and adjacent Austrian territory. The thesis is a proposal of an autonomous city, independent of existing neighborhoods, while continuously interlocking them. New urbanism affects the current industrial districts of Petržalka and adapts to the existing conditions of settlement, infrastructure and environment. New developed line pattern defining streets is based on the environment context. It creates links between existing town and the surrounding environment by structuring it into individual programs, generating various building typologies and responding to requests from individual neighborhoods.

The Fourth Quadrant Bratislava and adjacent Austrian territory

Wolfsthal population / 829 density / 38 inhabitants/ km2 area / 21,77 km2 first mentioned 1083

Berg population / 729 density / 77 inhabitants/ km2 area / 9,47 km2 first mentioned 862 1972- 1996 settlement Wolfsthal- Berg discontinued.

Kittsee population / 1998 density / 104 inhabitants/ km2 area/ 19,3 km2 Slovak Kopcany /german Kittsee/ settlement is a part of Petr탑alka

Petr탑alka population / 111 778 density / 4087 inhabitants/ km2 area / 28,68 km2 first mentioned 1278 cca 40 000 flat units

Petr탑alka Without business district and local city center, originally built as a housing estate with amenities designed for cluster of blocks, or the neighbourhood unit / it involves shops, schools, culture and sport facilities /. After completion of Incheba fairground in 1989 and later, along the main roads and highways with good connections to the center of Bratislava, central zone has formed / it involves business, commercial centers and shopping/. At the crossing of Einstein street and Pan처nska street, then along residential zones and between residential zones and old industrial zones, new Petr탑alka city center has emerged. From Incheba fairground westward, due to non- urbanized area and along highway, central zone has discontinued.

HOUSE RASLAVICE JĂĄn KohĂşt / 2012 / Under construction

Family house proposal for a young family in Raslavice, located in northeast of Slovakia. The aim was to design a simple house - living space with clear division into spacious open ground floor with kitchen, living room and room for future purposes, and closed upper night part with three rooms. There was a special requirement for a so called gang- an open corridor running all along the lenght of the house, allowing opening of the kitchen and connection between inside and outside on the south.
