Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program

  1. Brno – urban vision and realization

    The topic should address any relevant work missing in the Brno urban design. It should gather and evaluate urban ideas based on the city development documents up until now and starting from about the mid-19th century, when the city walls were demolished and Brno could extend further into the landscape, and compare them with what has been actually realized.

    Tutor: Kopáčik Gabriel, doc. Ing. arch., Dr.

  2. Issues of contemporary cities

    Pluralism of post-modern period, globalization and purposes of sustainable development bring new requirements into our city organisation. Do comply our settlements and their traditional compositional elements with needs of our near future? What is better, a compact city or a garden city? The work will focus on the analysis of sustainability of different urban forms.

    Tutor: Kopáčik Gabriel, doc. Ing. arch., Dr.

  3. Landscape contexts of the settlements

    Local landscape conditions to a different extent limit the urban and architectural design of buildings or development. Their respect or suppression (elimination) is always reflected in the overall rendition of the settlement development and its incorporation into the given place. Knowledge and understanding of the landscape context and determination of the importance and weight of individual components of the environment can influence the solution of creative intentions, including their implementation costs, durability and long-term sustainability.

  5. Village of 2050

    Although the majority of the population of the Czech Republic now lives in towns, we cannot ignore the fact that the vast majority of the territory has a character of the village settlement. The countryside and its landscape are essential to ensure the livelihood of the entire population, their recreation, and a healthy and sustainable environment. What are the issues of the village of today? How should it be dealt with? What is the village of the future going to look like?
