The project aims, as in the successful previous year, on the basis of the realization of architectural elements or small buildings (assumption - tower) from innovative materials to verify the contribution of the "learning by doing" method in the education process of future architects. The complex design of the building begins with individual elements and is a synthesis creative thinking, knowledge of materials, physical phenomena and physical workability and feasibility of the proposal. Individual proposals would be implemented in multi-member student teams under the methodical leadership of the members of the research team team.

Live Projects are a teaching method of architectural design in which projects are finalised by realisation. The project form is often influenced by cooperation with an investor or a future user. Apart from the project developed up to execution drawings student is taught how to work with a budget, how a construction is coordinated, how to cooperate with specialists, contractors and craftsmen, and also many soft skills e.g. team work organisation. In the Czech Republic, teaching Live Projects is not widespread. SGS research is going to focus on analysis of realized projects mainly from abroad, provide an overview of requirements for students and teachers, and present various teaching methods of Live Projects.

Human activity, including resource depletion, pollution and waste production, has a negative influence on the environment. Built environment is one of the major causes of the situation. It is therefore essential to change the approach to building design to lessen the impact of human activity on the environment. Architects, however, are not properly prepared for this change. This is caused by the education they receive at the universities that is dominated by aesthetically functional aspects of design, or is aimed at a limited amount of specific ecological problems. In order to meet the new design challenges for the built environment sustainability, it is necessary to revise the whole design process. Most approach changes need to be made in the conceptual phase of the design, which has major impact on the phases following. It is essential to apply such design methods, that bring more diversity and knowledge into the conceptual design phase and to cultivate such approaches, which meaningfully transform the team's knowledge into the creation of new architectural concepts.
