Faculty profile

The school of architecture in Brno was established in 1919. After the fall of the communist regime in November 1989 a new concept of architectural education was adopted by Prof.Ivan Ruller, the first democratic Dean of the Faculty. The organizational structure of the faculty subsequently changed. Former departments were transformed into institutes, and a new two-stage model of bachelor's and master's degree programs was introduced. In 1994, Prof. Alois Novy was appointed Dean of the Faculty. The Faculty became more open to experts and established contacts with domestic and foreign cooperators. Since 2000, the faculty was headed by Associate Professor Josef Chybik. Further reorganization was carried out and new studios, departments, and centers were established. In 2006 Professor Vladimir Slapeta took over the leadership with experience from The Technical University of Prague. The Faculty has undergone many structural changes, strengthened its international position and developed cooperation with IIT Chicago. Since 2010 the school is again lead by Associate Professor Josef Chybik, who enabled the emergence of student community SOFA as well as supported the creation of several independent communication platforms such as FORMAT400.

Brno is a home to many notable architectural works - Villa Tugendhat by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and architect Ernst Wiesner's Crematorium, architect Bohuslav Fuchs's - Hotel Avion, Moravian Bank, or the Brno Pavilion at the Brno Trade Fairs exhibition center.
