Architectural Design Studio 1
FAST-AG031Acad. year: 2018/2019
The Architectonic Design Studio is the most essential means of teaching architecture. The tuition is based on acquiring knowledge and skills by means of direct experience with architectonic design proceeding step by step from elementary subjects to complicated and sophistically operated complexes of buildings. Methodology lies in passing the tutor´s experience onto a student through a dialogue over an unfinished work. It develops creative thinking and professional habits indispensable to practicing an artistic and technical job. The student may take his/her own choice of both kind of design development document and a teacher.
The Residential Buildings Studio is focused on the family and multidwelling houses, temporary accommodation, urban polyfunctional buildings and, as well, special forms of living. The studio is attended by all students.
