Synopsis:

The lectures are divided into two tracks. The first is devoted to architectural composition, the basics of understanding the use of compositional principles in architectural design and understanding their effects. It also deals with other key means of architecture, such as structure, color, and material. All the attributes illuminated are presented in their basic, pure form and are further demonstrated on existing buildings of historical, but especially contemporary architecture. The second section is devoted to the problems of the basic principles of space creation in terms of layout requirements, ergonomics, quality of space creation. It is an introduction to the later more specialized subjects of building science. All the principles are presented with examples of mainly contemporary architectural design.

Requirements:

To successfully complete the subject, take a written exam, consisting of a test and a small assignment task.

Study Objective:

After completing the course, the student understands the basic principles of the dictionary of architecture, orients himself in the technical nomenclature and understands the basic relationship between man and building work, both from the point of view of the creation of space and from the point of view of its perception. This is basic preparation for subsequent studio work. The aim is also to become familiar with the design methods and the possibilities provided by the faculty to support students in the studios (model laboratory, computer classroom,...)
