Work in the studio mostly focuses on completing specific assignments or participating in current student competitions. The system of vertical studios influences the number and complexity of assignments. We usually assign two topics, of varying difficulty.
We are mostly concerned with buildings for housing, work or culture, and often also church buildings. Sometimes we seek the appropriate use and form for a specific part of the city and landscape – for places that are difficult to develop in a conventional way or where there is difficulty in finding a suitable use. There are usually two presentations during the semester, sometimes with the participation of visiting architects, during which we map and comment on the different, individual stages of a project. Our studio is regularly attended by large percentage of foreign students, and teaching takes place in both Czech and English. The exchange of views leads to interesting, mutual influence and creates a diverse result representing different cultural backgrounds.
