New lecture center VŠPJ, Czech Republic
“The city of Jihlava has long endeavored to have its own college campus. We see the presence of students as essential for the city's cultural progress. The College’s position has been strengthened significantly by the new lecture center and auditorium. Being the largest space suitable for conferences or conventions available at the moment, the auditorium has become an important venue for various social events. During the restrictions imposed by COVID-19, the city council meetings were also held here. For the city and the region the building has a symbolic meaning, too. In the 1950s, a controversial communist party show trial and subsequent executions happened here, and the new building finally started to redefine this sad legacy. Its contemporary architecture is quite clear about the message it wants to give. Tearing down the five-meter tall prison wall offered us new and optimistic vistas. In many ways, the building itself seems to be an active participant in the rediscovery of Jihlava's political, social and cultural identity.”
「伊赫拉瓦市長期以來一直致力於擁有自己的大學校園。我們認為莘莘學子對於城市的文化進步至關重要。因此，新的演講中心和禮堂也大大強化了學院的完整性。作為目前最大的，適合舉辦會議或大會的空間，該案成為當地舉辦各種社交活動的重要場所。甚至在 COVID-19 實施限制期間，市議會會議也在此舉行。然而對於這座城市來說，這座建築也別具有歷史的象徵意義。在 1950 年代，一場備受爭議的共產黨表演審判和處決都在這裡發生，而新建築正好重新定義了這原本帶有悲傷色彩的遺產。以當代建築的輪廓清楚地表達所想要傳達的訊息――推倒原建築的五公尺監獄圍牆，為居民帶來了新的氣象。從各方面來說，這座建築積極參與了伊赫拉瓦政治、社會和文化認同的重新發展。」
The wing reconstruction area and the new lecture room VŠPJ (College of Polytechnics) is a modern concept of rapidly developing education center located in northeastern corner of the lot, which was originally perceived as a farmyard. The place of the new building is strictly symmetrical, markedly triangular, thus for a construction seemingly disadvantageous. The authors from the studio Qarta architektura changed the disadvantage to an advantage by using the shape and by a link up to the existing block they gained compact space for a large span construction.
Roundness of the corner contributes to integration of a mass into a complex context; the offset façade is another trace of a new shape, creating a transition space. Inside a super elevated hall is amphitheatrical seating for 333 students. Thanks to the steepness of the stands the arena offers excellent visibility as well as pure acoustics. Tribunes have underpass, the space under them will be used for social events. Connecting presentation hall leads to a classical element of higher education “alchemistic workshop”, represented today by multimedia laboratory “virtual factory”.
而圓角設計更有助於將量體融入周圍複雜的環境中；偏移的立面也因此創造了一個過渡空間。超高層禮堂內有圓形劇場座位，可容納 333 名學生。由於看台陡峭，競技場提供了極佳的視野和純淨的音響效果。且看台設有地下通道，下方的空間將用於舉辦社交活動。
The new auditorium of VŠPJ is modern concept of dynamic contemporary architecture with industrial elements in a minimalist style in direct contrast to the original site and its newly reconstructed part of northeastern wing. Whole area is easy to navigate and today, thanks to the enlightened leadership of the institution, is open not only to students and educators, but also to its surroundings, fully in accordance with the philosophy of the modern college VSPJ.
VŠPJ 的新禮堂是充滿活力的當代建築的現代概念，具有簡約風格的工業元素，與原址及其新重建的東北翼部分形成鮮明對比。 整個區域交通便利，如今，由於該機構開明的領導，不僅向學生和教育工作者開放，而且還向周圍環境開放，完全符合現代大學 VSPJ 的理念。
