Diploma Project - Module M7

FA-DP7Acad. year: 2020/2021

Studio work is the main and essential method of teaching architecture. It is based on the “learning by doing” method, i.e. acquiring knowledge and skills through practical application. It consists of a dialogue between the teacher and the student about the project in progress. The diploma project should prove the general preparedness of the graduate to enter the profession, the ability to pass the authorization examination at the Czech Chamber of Architects and then potentially lead the architectural freelance studio independently.
