Tomas Bata University in Zlín
In the case of UTB Zlín, it is undoubtedly a timeless building with a modern appearance. The building was created under the architectural guidance of the world-famous architect Eva Jiřičná with maximum aesthetic and practical use for its users. With Helvar DIGIDIM and IMAGINE lighting control systems, a space for wellbeing, expandability and flexibility has been created.
Tomas Bata University in Zlín is very well regarded internationally. In addition to the Building of the Year 2017 award of the Zlín Region, the building has also won the Grand Prix of the Architects' Association 2018 and other awards. In the words of architect Eva Jiřičná, a native of Zlín, the design for this building was a great challenge, as the authors were limited by space. The result was two blocks replicating the surrounding buildings, with the entrance and the auditorium sandwiched between them. It is not only an architecturally interesting building, but also a prestigious university. The six faculties have more than 9000 students, of whom about 10% are international students from all over the world.
The Helvar DIGIDIM and IMAGINE control systems have been installed for this modern educational building. The DIGIDIM system is a standardized universal DALI system that offers flexibility and intelligent control of luminaires for a large number of applications, from a single room to large spaces. The IMAGINE system brings the wellbeing so important for educational spaces to the university. It offers the ultimate in flexibility and scalability for a wide range of applications.
