grenzüberschreitender Wohn-, Arbeits- und Freizeitmodelle

Doc. Ing. arch. Andrea Bacová, PhD.

01.01.2013 - 31.12.2014

Das Projekt REGIOGOES wird den Wohnbau sowie die siedlungsspezifischen, soziodemographischen und baukulturellen Entwicklungspotentiale des Grenzgebietes Bratislava und Nordburgenland analysieren. Auf dieser Grundlage werden in ausgewählten Orten neue innovative Bau- und Wohnformen für diverse Alters- und Sozialgruppen entwickelt sowie alte Baustrukturen mit neuen Funktionen besetzt. Ein wichtiger Aspekt dabei ist die Aufwertung und Bekanntmachung des baukulturellen Erbes in dieser Grenzregion.

MobEx 2013–2014. Water and City – Brownfields

MobEx 2013–2014. Voda a mesto – brownfieldy

Interna­tional Viseg­rad Fund, project no.: 21310101


The project team is making the analyses of  brownfields, which are located in contact with the water surfaces in the important centres of the V4. The selected examples verify new possibilities of functional usage for these areas. Subsequent comparison of solutions will provide a comprehensive picture on the transnational level of V4 countries. The project outcomes will be presented in the form of mobile exhibition, lectures at the conference in Bratislava and the compilation of scientific publication. The project is involving all V4 countries. More info: http://mobex2013.weebly.com 

OIKOnet - A global multidisciplinary network on housing research and learning

Ing. arch. Viera Joklová, PhD.

1.10.2013 - 30.9.2016

OIKOnet  (www.oikodomos.org) is a three-year pedagogic research project financed by the Life Long Learning programme, whose purpose is to create an international

platform of collaboration to study contemporary housing from a multidisciplinary and global perspective. A total of 34 organizations from 29 countries in Europe and around the world are part of this network. OIKOnet is a follow-up of the previous OIKODOMOS project which was carried out during 2007-2011.

OIKOnet will intertwine three areas of activity through sub-networks:

1. research on housing studies from a multidisciplinary and global perspective;

2. participatory actions to engage communities in the definition, solution and evaluation of housing problems;

3. pedagogical activities which bring together different stakeholders, learning environments and disciplines.

OIKOnet brings together schools of architecture and urban planning, research institutes, social groups, transnational organizations and local administrations. Altogether, the interactions across different stakeholders and disciplines will provide new insights on the contemporary housing conditions, and will help to forge links between academia and the social and economic milieu, between research and learning, and between the European education space and other universities around the world.

Doc. akad. soch. Peter Paliatka, Mgr. art. Michala Lipková

Prvá fáza 2010/2011, druhá fáza 2011/2012



The goal of the first phase of the Fit 2 E-Car project was to create a vision of electromobility for the next decade. The emphasis was put on the complex scope of the project - the students were working on several aspects of electromobility - covering wide range of partial problems (changing stations, city transportation infrastructure, car body exterior and interior design, MMI, interface, accessories, Color & Trim). After bringing three complex visions presented in Mladá Boleslav in 2011, the second phase brought new challenge in the form of a technical package, number of constraints that were set by the Technical Support of Škoda Auto.  Each of the three teams is formed by students of FA STU and 2 students of the Faculty of Engineering. The main challenge is to create three different and integrated electromobile vehicle solutions, that will present design concept based on realistic construction background.
