Studio work is the main and essential method of teaching architecture. It is based on the “learning by doing” method, i.e. acquiring knowledge and skills through practical application. It consists of a dialogue between the teacher and the student about the project in progress. Its theme corresponds to the module that the student at the beginning enrolled of his studies in master program “Architecture and Urbanism”.

post-industrial city /or urbanized country/ by self work on chosen topic in the form of urbanistic composition /essay, treatise/. Also to choose main problems concerning the assignment, determine theoretical alternative openings for own concept of spatial and functional arrangement by study of theoretical data and comparable examples along with evaluation of researches. To process chosen solution in matching graphical and digital form with supportive argumentation for defending the proposal. Convincing form of presentation.
