FA-TINAcad. year: 2019/2020
The subject offers a comprehensive idea of a well serviced area, of the effects of technical infrastructure (i.e. all utility networks, services and transport facilities) on the formation of urban development concepts of new and renewed areas. Students are made acquainted with utilities, supply systems, supply lines and pipelines, with the problems of their co-ordination and with the legal and other bases needed for the formulation of a development concept for an area, including the water supply in Town (Reining water atc.). The contents of the subject is conceived so that the architect - urban planner can master the comprehensive solution of servicing the planned area. In the framework of excursions, students get acquainted with underground line structures - pipe galleries and selected facilities of utility networks (water treatment plants, water towers, waste water purification plants, refuse incinerating plans, etc.).
