Congratulations to all!
Conservation and restoration of four archaeological caps from archaeological research, from the crypt of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Žilina
Department of Restoration and Conservation
"Dominika, I have always greatly appreciated the patient work of conservators. I knew there were no time shortcuts or knowledge concessions. I am awarding you the rector's prize for a diploma thesis in the field of restoration for an exceptional restoration effort, in which you managed to restore unique velvet-laced caps from the 17th century. You have restored objects that were literally falling apart under your hands. You have thus contributed to saving the cultural heritage of all of us."
Spaces of the landscape. Similarity and dissimilarity of architectural and natural space
Department of Architecture
"Dávid, I award you the rector's prize in the field of architecture for finding and solving a way to hybridize landscape and architecture. Searching for ways of living in a country where construction and natural processes mix. I appreciate your targeted manipulation of the terrain into a landscape of folds and waves, which creates one of the possible layers for dwellings and interiors. I was also impressed by the prefabricated interior capsules and columns designed by you as an instantly usable architectural ready-made."
Relationship between fermentation cultures and (their) movement
Department of Intermedia
"Viktória, through a performance with four performers, showed through movement, often illogical movement - movement that goes against the logic of human movement, sound accent of jerky movements, the image of today's world. There was a lot of it - isolation, fatigue, aggression, relaxation, lack of communication, cooperation and much more."
Originality. Author's technology
Department of Design
"Viktor, I am awarding you the rector's award for your diploma work for your contribution in the field of researching author's technology as one of the possibilities of applying individual design production in practice. Your work is a technically sophisticated system of interconnected tools to create an autonomous original product, which bears an unmistakable, artistically strong trace of technological progress and enables high variability of produced porcelain objects."
