01 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Project 7 autumn term 2015/2016 supervisor: doc. Ing. arch. Zdeněk Makovský, MgA. Ing. arch. Petr Šmídek, Ph.D. Task assignment Obřany is a place reaching back into the Romanesque period and beyond. Today it is a suburb of the city of Brno. The historic square is surrounded by a train loop. The town centre is intersected by a busy road. However the town centre doesn’t fulfil its potential and remains mostly unutilized. Our common task was to assemble a mosaic of historical sites and evaluate the potential of the area. Within the idea of “art in art” we first made an analysis of the whole of Obřany and then followed minor changes and renewal within the so-called “urban interventions”. Each of us had put together our own building programme, which aimed to revive the place, which should be somehow functionally connected to art. Location: Obřany, Brno, South Moravia, Czech Republic picked place - Hradiska (Fortification) Hradiska is the most famous archaeological site in the whole of Brno. It was built on a syenite hill towering 100 m above the Svitava river, which flows around the hill on three sides. On the fourth, the north side and partly on the east side it was surrounded by huge walls, now it is reduced to the form of mounds. Inside the fortifications, in an area of 42 hectares, were rich settlements mainly from the Late Bronze Age. Nowadays, this site belongs to local residents and is being used only as gardens and fields.
The purpose of my intervention into this Obřany area is a return to the now neglected history of this area and its mediation for the public. Important signposts for my proposal were not only archaeological findings, but also morphological conditions offering wide views, the richness of the surrounding nature and generally easy accessibility. WILL BE
EDUCATION - FAITH - ART The three pillars on which every stable society and culture have always stood. Obřany’s colonization began in the 9th century BC. (i.e. before the actual city of Brno) by Celtic settlers. This culture had its centre in the location of today's Hradiska.
These days, life stays in Obřany and people live without any bigger interaction with the historical site of Hradiska. The potentials of the municipality are veiled and the third pillar - ART - faded.
The draft works with returning life back into Obřany COMEBACK. Obřany will be connected with their roots - Hradiska and in different parts of the village linked to it. This will provide a synthesis of history and contemporary life. The missing third pillar - ART will be placed onto the Obřany island, which hides huge potential.

OUR TERRITORY (proposal)
The landscape intervention is designed as a gradually changing path. It is a path of knowledge and of the so-called comeback inspired by the history of the area concerned. The graduating terrain relief offers different levels of various functions. Overall, a visitor passes through four segments. Firstly, during the three segments the visitor overcomes a big slope, and the fourth one leads directly to the territory of the original settlement. *AT THE VERY BOTTOM THERE ARE DESIGNED PARKING PLACES FOR VISITORS *THEN FOLLOWS A SERPENTINE PATH OVERCOMING A SLIGHT SLOPE *GREENS AND SHRUBS FORM A MAINTAINED LANDSCAPE WITH AN OPPORTUNITY TO REST *IN THE SECOND PART WE GET ONTO A FLAT LEVEL OF THE SLOPE *HERE WE CAN VISIT A GALLERY - FREE TO ACCESS, WHICH IS PARTIALLY LOCATED UNDER GROUND LEVEL *THIS PLACE INTRODUCES US TO AN EXHIBITION OF THE HRADISKA HERITAGE THROUGH PANELS GATHERING INFORMATION ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE ORIGINAL SETTLEMENT *THE 2ND LEVEL ALSO OFFERS OUTDOOR SPACE AND A CHANCE TO SIT ON WOODEN FURNITURE IN THE MIDDLE OF GREENERY GROUND PLAN

01 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Project 7 autumn term 2015/2016 supervisor: doc. Ing. arch. Zdeněk Makovský, MgA. Ing. arch. Petr Šmídek, Ph.D. Task assignment Another part of the project is an abandoned industrial island near the former mill Svitavy, which offers huge potential which can turn Obřany into a popular location and the northern gateway to the Moravian Karst. The island is poised to become the center of cultural and artistic activities of Obřany. On its surface there are several derelict buildings. The only valuable building is the building of an old textile factory, which has an exceptional construction system and the potential for conversion. Location: Obřany, Brno, South Moravia, Czech Republic
The overall architectural design of the island comes from a concept which promotes already existing strengths - a valuable greenery, a circumambience by the river or a proximity to ObĹ™any center. The proposal seeks to minimize the mass of new buildings in order to create a comfortable environment easily utilisable for leisure time. It also includes creating a park that, like the entire island, will be easily accessible and will become an attractive public space with a human scale. The roof design of the outdoor space is inspired by water. Smoothly undulating shapes express the dynamics of water, while providing light coverage of the outdoor pavilion. The structure is designed in the form of grid shell frames which are filled with ETFE foils in various colors.
PROPOSAL SVITAVA RIVER
Offers great natural potential, gives beauty to the landscape around itself and brings life to the places along with its water and banks. The river is an attractive environment for leisure activities (fishing, walking, cycling) and sports activities (boating, skating). The river Is one of the main advantages of the area.
Art has always been an integral part of every culture, though in Obřany this component is missing. Thus together with spaces for cultural events I designed a place purely intended for artists and artistic activities.
GREENERY - original, maintained - coffee to go SERVICES - grocery’s - baker’s - florist’s - parking places
HISTORY Not every place can boast of such a long history of settlement. It is important not to omit values of Obřany which have been brought into the present through a long-term development and also take into account those functions that haven’t survived for various reasons. Another source for my inspiration came an extinct film culture in Obřany and a missing centre for cultural activities.
TEXTILE FACTORY INTERIOR 1st floor - literary cafe, restaurant, multif. hall 2nd floor - gallery, workshops, courses 3rd floor - studios, spaces for rent 4th floor - lofts ACCOMMODATION - hostel
GREENERY The greatest value of our environment is undoubtedly in the nature. Into my proposal I try to integrate maximum amount of greenery. Partially, I go back to the original function of the island, which historically used to be an area with orchards and gardens.
OUTDOOR SPACE - ‘square’ - meeting point - restaurant - reading space Open air pavilion - cinema, theatre - music events - lectures, projections

SEQUENCE + CONNECTION
The basis is designed as an open concrete case for an amphitheater. After the installation of seats (modular containers) the pavilion turns into a covered outdoor cinema or theater. From the opposite side, it may work as a stage suitable for smaller outdoor concerts, providing all the necessary facilities. On the contrary, over the winter the seats of the amphitheater can be easily removed and replaced with a public ice rink, which will help to ensure year-round operation of the outdoor part of the island. Furniture - benches are conceptually designed as iconic ones, supplying the island with an unmistakable identity.

To design a studio where you will be able to work for the next two years. The challenge is to create an ideal studio for twelve students on the land near the school of the Faculty of Architecture. Location: Brno, South Moravia, Czech Republic
Plenty of space and light for working and views of the surrounding area. Each floor has its character and is functionally linked to the others. Zones of the building are divided into a creation, a discussion, and a presentation zone. The shape is centric, there we find a centre of energies of the working group. It also supports the building dynamics and continuity of spaces. The building placement within the site is not exactly parallel to the neighboring facades. The reason is an intended view-through the area from a pedestrian path which connects the street Bělidla and Poříčí. The shape of the house also releases the space of the area with many trees.

A modul of each floor is designed as a structure made out of concrete and transparent elements. Space continuity is natural with clearly defined areas for communication or particular activities. An outdoor stairway alternating with ramps and covered walkways spirally wound around the creative centre and adds dynamism to the whole building. Along with an increasing floor height achieving a gradation of the interior space. The whole building is surounded by a transparent facade consisting of aluminum lamellas. The facade works as a sun shade and together with colourful lights illuminates the staircase, giving the building a variable artistic appearance.
02 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Project 6 - FINAL PROJECT spring term 2014/2015 supervisor: Ing. arch. Jan Mléčka, Ph.D. Task assignment The subject of the thesis is to design a residential complex in the area of the existing gardens between the streets Pastviny and Houškova in the city of Brno-Komin. A draft of an urban structure, including its architectural design must respect the character of the area, especially its topographic and contextual quality, not only with regard to the immediate neighborhood, but also in the context of the entire city. Taken into account should also be current issue of developement of Czech settlement with an emphasis on sustainable development. Location:
Pastviny, Brno - Komín, South Moravia, Czech Republic The site (2ha) is located in the eastern part of the city district Brno-Komin at the foot of Palacký Hill in the vicinity of the primary and nursery schools.

The main idea of my project is to build a community that stimulates neighbourly relations, and supports a community environment, while respecting the independence of each individual and their private space. The coherent architectural arrangement should promote creation and sustain neighbourly relations. Each unit includes private and semi-private spaces as well as indoor and outdoor social space. Thus combines the advantages of autonomous private space of the apartment and commonly shared public space.

INTERNAL FUNCTIONING The basic presumtion for new residents is a commitment to living in a community. The architectural layout of residential areas makes a positive contribution towards encouraging community life, while leaving enough space for the private activities of individuals. Community members can be, for example, families with children, childless couples, or individuals. Residents are homeowners who furnish the houses according to their needs. They can also share a common space that can be used for regular meetings of the inhabitants - both formal and informal. Shared facilities are designed in order to meet the daily needs of the whole community and are an integral component of community life. However, these activities and facilities are also open to the wider local community - that promotes greater integration and community development in a wider area. Thanks to the given intentionality and high frequency of interactions, residents are building trust towards each other, which is necessary for offering and accepting mutual assistance. This can be realized in the form of a car sharing, child care etc.. Cooperation usually starts between neighbours who know each other from common activities, such as care for the common garden or preparing community meals. Considerable space is also being given to various hobby clubs.
A circulation of pedestrians and a good visual range has a big effect on a safety within the site. Another part of life in the community is also a requirement of how much time inhabitants should spend on doing community work (circulation). It is intended to promote a sense of espo s b y and a d belonging be o g g to o the e community, co u y, while e also a so providing p o d g a possibility poss b y for o unemu e responsibility ployed or retired members to be productive. Future members are actively or less actively involved in the project planning. They can engage in the design of houses and their surroundings, thus participate in the environment development. The community functioning is subject to a set rules that the residents identify and sanction themselves. Therefore the responsibility for the management and running of the community remains fully in the hands of its members. = a combination of an expert and an alternative approach = the physical space + the democratic approach + voluntary participation in common activities + keeping of an independent private life

An important factor of my concept was the prevailing length dimensions of the area. Proposal to all individual structures, functions, variation of facades, materials, a design and a construction system has a gradation that passes through its entire length. Each p a r t o f t h e p r o j e c t - s o u l , m i n d a n d b o d y - i s l o c a t e d o n a d i ff e r e n t l e v e l , w h i c h v i s u a l l y c r e a t e s t h e d e s i r e d e ff e c t o f d i ff e r e n t s p h e r e s . The area is oriented to the south and its size is approximately 5 hectares.
The concept of my project is building a multipurpose centre for a man in the countryside. It will be located on the southern slope to the west of the village Strachotín. The individual functional parts of the project, primarily focused on running an organic farm with a small bioproduction, are arranged one after another according to the continuity of an internal structure, so will not only be a practical connection, but also a symbolic "way" through which anybody can achieve the targeted balance.
Each par t of the whole project carries a name symbolizing its purpose. SOUL is a subtle pavilion on a water sur face, where a visitor comes to rest and relax. SOUL is a place where people go to think, meditate or read. The water sur face and the surrounding scener y is, however, a substantial com plement to the pavilion’s purpose. Another functional enrichment is its location right on the reser voirs Nové Mlýny. This place is, in fact, an ornithological paradise, so there is always a possibillity for sightings of various bird species. MIND is a sim ple structure designed, on its base, as a wooden cube. Is supplemented by a shielding enclosure, which symbolically points to the reser voir. A primar y function of the building is an educational center that can be used as a space for lectures, exhibitions and thematic meetings. Another function is connected to the near bicycle trail - snack bar offering a wide view on Pálava (= hilly vineyards) right from its terrace. BODY is the most extensive par t of this project. There is concentrated the main essence of the functionality of the eco-center. The body is divided into three buildings according to their determination - living, creating and work.
nor th/west view
SOUL The water pavilion is suppor ted by a system of steel columns which are fixed to the bottom of the reser voir. These columns adjust the height of both the wooden floor, specially adjusted to the water level, and the lightweight roofing system. The shading material of the roof is made out of two white linen sails, which are suppor ted by reinforced steel rods put into shape following my previous draf t. This reinforcement is then attached to the bearing construction. Why the sail? The building is projected as a par t of the water sur face, thus a sim ple and convenient solution was designed. Rainwater flows outside the walkable area due to the corresponding slope. Another element in the pavilion is a round g lass wall which is fixed to the floor at its base and the upper par t fastened to the roof structure. Concept SOUL is not specific is blurred and ambient is a small loophole in the middle of nowhere is veiled in a soft membrane is light and subtle, moving in the wind is translucent but opaque is a space is gentle, sensitive is steady is an introvert is silence and peace
g round plan
MIND This part of the project is also built up on the principle of bearing steel columns which lift both the walking surface and the canvas roof. It is tightened up into the desired shape by rods and bars. The box structure itself is designed as a bearing system of KLH slabs. The building is on a slope, so there will be necessary adjustments for securing the terrain against landslide.

The whole part BODY will be built in the same structural system, the system from Steico (natural building products). It is based on the principle of bearing structure of the facade itself secured by Steico beams with rigid connections. This will generate a “clear” ground plan, only supplemented by non-bearing walls and subtle pillars in areas where needed. A floor structure and internal elements are also designed in the same system according to the producer’s technical documentation. (Http://www.akastav.cz/article.php?id=20&lng=1) Regarding the design of the facades, each building will have a different outer shell. This diversity was chosen because of the concept of a "path" that changes and gradates on every steps while walking. However, the selected materials features also correspond to each building. The residential building’s facade is covered with plates of leftover stone, the creative house is covered with a wooden lamella facade and the farm house’s facade is made simple by KLH slabs.
Concept BODY is a mass i s a s t a b i l i t y, w e i g h t is solid, balanced is a protection, an envelope, a shelter is a base, which enables life

ground d plan - FARM HOUSE
The ecological solution According to the principles of the system of the ecological stability, the eco-farm focuses on a considerate usage of natural resources and is based on self-sufficiency. The energetical and economical concept is based on the utilisation of local materials. On the building itself wood, clay, hay and straw from nearby areas will be used. In operation, there will be also an implemented usage of wood and winery waste for heating. An important fact is the distribution of products from the farm to its surroundings. The whole area will also involve elements participating in the production of renewable energy and the environment protection, for example - photovoltaic and photothermic systems, sewage clarification plant, heat recovery from water waste and air and rainwater utilisation.
04 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Project 4 spring term 2013/2014 supervisor: prof. Ing. arch. Hana Urbášková, Ph. D. Task assignment House for a designer - healthy living. The healthy environment of a house and its energy consumption is currently an important criterion for the quality of a project proposal. The task is to find the right features of a house regarding the identity and the specific user’s needs. The proposal will take into account environmental aspects and principles of sustainable development. Location: Brno - Jundrov, South Moravia, Czech Republic
GREENERY ORIGINAL BUILDINGS PROPOSAL ACCESS
Zenith house This is an elegant villa set onto a steep slope in the quiet environment of Jundrov - one of the Brno’s quarters. This building is a modern wooden construction providing a healthy environment for the life of a household (at least for 4 people). The proposed building follows principles of the passive house design and its structural design and the interior layout are huge advantages which help with energy-conservation/saving the environment. Urban solution The location of the house was given. As an architect, local conditions were expected to be dealt with and the most madeout of them. Due to both the active and passive solar gains, it was necessary to decide where to situate glazing surfaces and place thermal panels. The goal was to ensure maximum energy gains. The house is situated in an area with very limited width dimensions. It is closely surrounded by lands and houses of the neighbours, so focusing on choosing a suitable location for the house within the site and dividing the whole area into functional sections was important. Generally the villa’s proposal is geared to maximize the potential of the area. The location of the house was given.

The open layout is a very variable feature and offers possibilities for future changes. The equipment of the house is minimalist, efficient and of a high quality. The pleasantness of the internal space is guaranteed by a sufficient supply of daylight, which becomes an integral part of everyday life. The high levels of daylight in the interior also reduce energy expenses. Also important are the suitable positions of energy sources, the chosen system for hot water preparation, ventilation, etc. By simplifying and shortening its distribution distance we reduce the demands on pumps and fans, thus we will reduce the energy lost during individual routes.

The main house entrance is from the 1st floor and is located on its eastern side. The lowest level of the house is built from concrete and carries a lightweight wooden construction of the upper floors. A solid foundation anchors the building to the hilly terrain and also works as a storage unit - preventing overheating in summer and in winter retaining heat. The hanging part of the house is supported by steel columns (some of them are used as drainpipes). It is also a wooden structure, but being mounted on a cross-armoured slab. The façade ç facing the north is completely without windows in order to eliminate heat loss. Another reason is the fact that the house is situated on the very edge of the site.
For meeting the current energy requirements and standards, it was necessary to focus on the perfect heat cladding and the insulation of the building (in particular avoida avoidance of thermal bridges). However, it couldn’t completely seal the house because it is essential essent to allow the building to "breathe". Therefore, the composition of the external walls and the roof cladding is designed as diffusion-open and allows the flow of gases and vapour out of the building. To the airing of the exterior walls also help ventilated facade made of cement-fibre panels, which bring considerable positives.
The eastern facade is permeated with only one window opening. On the contrary, the south and west facades have many glass surfaces and thus able to gain passive energy. Then these gains are used to achieve a thermal comfort in the interior. Overheating in summer is prevented by double shading from both the exterior and the interior. The mass solution The compact design of the thermal envelope ensures minimal energy loss. Simple cubic masses are connected by the sloping roof, which follows the inclination of the area slope and therefore appropriately pp p yp puts the building g into the environment. GROUND PLAN, 1st floor
Comfortable environment In the design of such buildings we must count on a system which provides a convenient way of con heating. An ingenious system of air heating and ventilation with controlled hea heat recovery in an interior provides sufficient thermal comfort without unnecessary energy loss losses (which arise when opening windows). It also creates a comfortable indoor environment without dust distriwit bution. The ecological solutions in the design also counts on rainwater usage. The water wate will be drained from the roof using roof water inlets and then through pipes into the rainwater rainwate tank, which is located under the swimming pool. Water passes through a cleaning block, and is subsequently used for pool needs. An amount exceeding the needs of the pool is also used a as potable water for household needs or is channelled into a retention tank placed next to the h house.

05 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Project 3 autumn term 2013/2014 supervisor: Ing. arch. Luboš Františák, Ph. D. Task assignment New city Architecture and urbanism as a unit. Now it is in your hands, you have a concept while working on a detail - a townhouse and public space. Support urban environment near the river. Take inspiration from Amsterdam-IJburg, Borneo and the new city blocks in Berlin (D. Chipperfield). Location: Brno - Horní Heršpice, South Moravia, Czech Republic
THE NEW CITY The area is located in the southern part of Brno. In this location there is great potential to the future development of Brno. The area is clearly defined by existing roads. From the north and west there is KĹĄĂrova Street, then on the south Sokolova Street. The eastern boundary is determined by the river Svratka, which is a significant natural feature, but it also conceals a danger of floods. The current site is being completely unused and there we can find just a few detached houses and commercial premises on the edges of the area. The area is a so-called Greenfield site. The majority of the site consists of fields and grasses, which, due to its close location to the city centre, can be considered as inadequate.
Buildings that line the main avenue, that longitudinally crosses the site, will be smaller blocks of apartment buildings. Thanks to their shapes and mutual arrangement create innovative spaces which invite its inhabitants to explore more or stay there. Both larger and smaller areas should have their own distinctive character. Connecting objects with an outdoor environment should be supported by small cafes and open ground floors. The goal was to design places that promote outdoor activities and create a friendly environment. Spaces that are not defined only as long and monotonous facades.
The concept of the proposal is based on the creation of smaller and diverse urban spaces. Places in such proportions have been designed that should correspond with their purposes - to create a pleasant and liveable environment either for residents or visitors. On that basis, different types of buildings with a maximum of six floors were also chosen.

In both directions of the main street we get into a zone with limited car access, lower speed limit and generally smaller buildings such as detached houses and solitary apartment houses and townhouses. There we also encounter many squares and public spaces. A great essence of every environment is the presence of greenery. In the area there is devoted space also for services, trade, commerce and social activities. Sports and recreational facilities are concentrated within walking distance across the river.

07 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Space and shape autumn term 2014/2015 supervisor: doc. Ing. arch. Jiří Palacký, Ph.D., Ing. Arch. Jakub Novák Task assignment A proposal of table furniture easy to fold and unfold and made out of one piece of material. A pop-up coffee table, dining table or a table for everyday use. Minimum load capacity 4 kg. Using polypropylene plates. The proposed method is CNC machining processing overhead gantry milling machine.
template for a miling machine
After a study stud of folding techniques and a subsequent working g pro p process I was able to design a very practical furniture ele element. This is a simple cube which can be easilyy formed forme by rotation of its folded version. The cube can b be used as a bedside table or an occasional servin serving table which, thanks to the involvement of colourful colourfu LED strips, may create various atmospheres in a an interior. The whole design is based on a practicality. In essence its p production is very simple and it, of course, relieves the financial aspect. One plate p of a material in the dimension 500x2,000 mm (though (thoug g dimensions are arbitrary) is sufficient for constructing g the whole table. After a composition and a subsequent subse connection of two narrow edges we gain the final product. The thickne thickness of the polypropylene plate is 2mm. Coherence of the cube, both in a folded and an unfolded state, is secured in its corners by equipment that operates p on the principle of Velcro. It is built into the material itself. itse The thickness of the unfolded form is based on th the material thickness. In my case it is less than 2 cm. When we p po pop the table up its structure locks together a nd iitt ssupports upp and the overall rigidity.
08 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic New forms spring term 2014/2015 supervisor: MgA. Jan Ĺ ebĂĄnek, Ing. arch. Jan Kratochvil Task assignment A draft of "new forms" classifiable under the category "blob" designed using any software methods and techniques of expression. The aim of the course was to identify and critically evaluate the unconventional world of architectural spaces which facilitate the design of our current instruments CAD and CAM.
BLOB This 3D model was created according to my own previous sketches, which were supposed to freerly interpretate the term "blob". The subsequent processing took place in a 3D program, which served as a basis for 3D printing. A prototype is made out of a plastic material. Achieving the final form is about a manual treatment of the printed 3D element through a repeated agglutination and smoothing. As the final adjustment a dark red paint was chosen. Utilisation The proposal is intended as an exterior design element of the future with a possibility of using its interior space. Interesting are the lighting effects that, thanks to the articulation of the facade and a play of light and shadow, form an unmistakable inner atmosphere. Thanks to the variability of the scale selection its purposefulness is really wide. This could be an area designed for children, a bar, a cultural space, etc..
09 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Interior and exhibition autumn term 2012/2013 supervisor: Ing. arch. Jan MlĂŠÄ?ka Task assignment A proposal for interior wooden furniture - chairs. The finished model (scale 1:1) meets the requirements of ergonomics, acceptability and aesthetics. The aim was to gain knowledge in the field of design and acquire the basic principles of working with wood.
All the parts of the chair are attached by gluing. The strength and stability are supported by wooden lamellas. Their location can be seen in the pictures above. MATERIALS - OSB (22mm), dispersion glue K端berit 303, acrylic paint waterborne Primaster
10 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Art creation VII - Drawing autumn term 2014/2015 supervisor: doc. Ing. arch. ZdenÄ›k MakovskĂ˝ Task assignment The object is the study of organic forms and their spatial patterns. The outcomes of the study are developed cognitive processes, creativity and rational thinking. Students work on a given topic (organic shape, human head, figure, human figure in architectural space), after previous analyses of the problem (geometry shape, proportions), they express their own ideas realized by different techniques, for example, drawing, painting, modeling.
11 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Art creation III - Colour spring term 2012/2013 supervisor: doc. Ing. arch. Aleš Navrátil, Ph.D. Subject’s goals Improved confidence in their work through artistic means such as colour. Gained experience of working with materials, tools and other findings help a student work with paints. On the contrary, foster a sense of responsibility to colour solution without a unified understanding of colours. Opens the way to the original author's work. Students will be able to combine colour with meaning.
12 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Interior and exhibition spring term 2012/2013 supervisor: Ing. arch. Jan Mléčka coworkers: Anežka Vrabcová, Kristýna Vaňková Subject’s goals This course enables basic orientation in a significantly specific field of interior design conceived not only as a creation of the architectural space, but also of a detail which documents the quality of the architecture. This area is the most significant creations of furniture, which is a very peculiar documentation of the development of a material culture. A prerequisite for successfully mastering this course is the completion of subjects of previous studies that highlight the logic and hierarchy of indispensable information and experience to the work of a creative architect. Location: Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Brno, Czech Republic
13 Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Czech Republic Marena - decoration of the school, work in the school corridors November 2014 coworkers: Veronika Tvrdá, Luděk Šimoník, Zdeněk Zedka, Anna Šatalíková Task assignment As every year the fourth year students organized for the first year students an event called “Marena”. In conjunction with this event the school interior is being subjected to a conversion within a given topic. We went through working with light, detail, colour and space environment and transformed one of the school corridors - the theme was "paradise".
