Spatial Structures - Studio

The studio aims to introduce students with the complex problem of designing spatial structures in architecture. Working in the studio, we test concepts, methods, and tools which allow the design of unconventional, rational, sustainable spatial structures in specific contexts.

A Studio is a study unit in the first year of Master Studies of Architecture within the Structural Engineering Module and it is composed of four courses:

_ Design: Spatial structures,

_ Seminar 1: Theory of Systems,

_ Seminar 2: Applied Mathematics in the Field of Structural Systems and

_ Workshop: Digital Technologies in Construction Process.

The Studio Design course is project-driven research of spatial structures that facilitates students to explore diverse concepts in practical design situations. By working on a specific task students have an opportunity to perfect individual design process. Lectures and presentations related to typology and morphology of spatial structures, processes, and procedures for their generation, optimization, materialization, construction, and fabrication provide students with the theoretical and methodological knowledge and skills needed to master the project. Seminar 1 introduces students with the basis of structural analysis necessary to evaluate structural behavior. Seminar 2 introduces students with selected fields of mathematics that can find application in the representation of spatial structures. The Workshop introduces students with advanced digital tools and their application in design and construction processes.

SPECIFICITY OF THE STUDIO DESIGN CURRICULUM. Spatial structures are placed at the intersection of two design disciplines – architecture, and structural engineering, and appropriation of knowledge and technologies of both art and science correspond to their dichotomous nature. Respectively, the study of spatial structures through the studio project allows the benefits of teaching methods specific to the field of art to be used for teaching in the field of engineering while applying scientific methods and tools in the design process.

The studio curriculum interactively combines analytical and systematic procedures with explorative design exercises, literature studies, and organized reflection. Process-driven approach and focused design tasks engage students in developing in-depth content knowledge as well as critical thinking, creativity, and presentation and communication skills in the context of doing an authentic project. It is specific that in the design process, special attention is paid to model research of spatial structures, whose performance students also study through accompanying seminars and workshop.
