Industrial Topography of the Czech Republic is the title of a large ongoing research project run by the Research Centre for Industrial Heritage. It produced series of guidebooks and publications, information summaries and maps that systematically chart each of the industrial regions of the Czech Republic in depth and detail larger than ever before. It offers evidence of the extraordinary density and typological and architectural diversity of industrial structures on the central European territory. Its aim is to draw public attention towards their existence, context, conservation and finding appropriate new uses.

Current construction material science focuses on biological and synthetic structures. It is sometimes called biomateriomics and focuses on analyzing the role of the material in the context of biological processes, to the transfer of principles of biological materials towards biomimetic and biology inspired uses, and to the study of the interface between living and nonliving systems. The research in construction material science leads to high performance materials based on de novo understanding of biological material processes. The result of the construction materials and structures with properties that are characterized by their selfconstruction and selfmaintenance, their ability to adapt and develop and provide a variety of functions that can be controlled by external stimuli.

Publications and books in which the research results of the Institute of Theory and History of Architecture are transmitted are of two basic types: the first type researches architectures of excellent artistic and technical performance and examines their history, using e.g. iconic architectural works of Prague as examples, the second type researches simple, everyday activities and architecture, such as conventional apartment buildings and their hidden history or industrial architecture, so abundant in the past and currently newly acquired. The many architectural publications are completed by publications which are the result of research on architects and on architecture of key historical periods of domestic architecture.
