Students will acquire information concerning urban design, morphology, topography and typology of settlement structures, relations between mass, space and activities in settlements, forms and structure of public space, infrastructure influences on an urban fabric, new tendencies. What are the questions of today that require the search for answers? Next theme is suburbanisation and different types of urbanistic low-rise formations and buildings, inclusive the problem of „urban sprawl“.

Changes (transformations) within the countryside during the last century, namely in agriculture technologies, housing, transportation etc. Within the whole subject theoretical background will be combined with practical field studies.
