On real assignments, the students test the comprehension of their own theoretical position in relation to the architectural design and to the world that surrounds this design. The studios are the key subjects in our faculty. The basics of architectural design and the basic studios (ZAN I and ZAN II) are taught in a separate studio. The introduction to the knowledge of basic sources, forms and means of architectural design prepares the students for studies in the institute’s vertical studios.
As part of the doctorate study programme, the institute participates in the research activities in the faculty. The main themes include contemporary architectural design in the Czech Republic and its systematic mapping.
The department’s pedagogical team contains Czech architects known for their projects and buildings in the Czech Republic and abroad. Of course, each member of the institute also works as a practicing architect and their experience enriches their pedagogical activities.
