Abstract (in English)

ln the last years the centre of interest of the care of monuments in the architectural sphere has been transferred from the individual structures to the groups of them and to the whole historical towns. A renewal of the sets of historical buildings and towns, which would be succesful from the artistic, technical and economical viewpoints, was however hindered by bad knowledge of their urbanistic and architectural body. Within the framework of the pre-project preparation at the State lnstitute of Re-development of Historical Towns and Buildings a methodology of constructional and historical, architectural, constructional and technical researches has been worked out. The resulting study consists of these parts: the history of the building encluded the annotation of the sources, iconography, plans and literature, the architectural analysis of the building, its constructural evolution, the constructional and technical description of the building, the statement of the architectural details being of value and of the most important architectural defects, and the regulations for clearance and re-development. The constructional and historical evaluation of all structures {wall of the ceiling, vaults) in concordance with their stylistical origin is marked in corresponding colours on the plans of all floors of the analysed set or group and in graphic signs on the plan of each building in the scale 1/200. At the same time an architectural and historical evaluation is made, which includes ail structures and spaces, on the same level of details as with the previous evaluation. The building and historical analysis of the whole town or of the core of it is accordingly simplified to make base for urbanistical studies and projects, in the scale 1/1.000. The application of the above methodology has made it possible to learn in detail the development and the constructional essence of the Czechoslovak historical towns, which on the world scale represent one of the most important manifestations of urbanism and architecture of the past millenium.
