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 practising an artistic and technical job. The student may take his/her own choice of both kind of design development document and a teacher.
The Monuments Restoration Studio is focused on recovery and alteration of the preserved surviving building substance, the emphasis being on the preservation of monuments of the material culture. The Studio is attended by all students.
