Section of Modern and Contemporary Architecture
Contemporary architectural explorations dealt with by the Office for Contemporary Architecture penetrate the entire curriculum of the Faculty of Architecture. Teaching activities integrate undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels into a single group of 14 related programmes. Special focus in the acquisition of knowledge is given to the comprehension of architectural formats, plans, historic events and consequently, possibilities of creating architectural compositions. Having the fundamental body of knowledge on modern and contemporary architecture, students engage in individual research, paper assignments and work on designs in studios and field studies in order to acquire specialist skills and knowledge on architecture while taking care of the balanced and sustainable environment at the threshold of the third millennium. The office owns a collection of study materials whose continual development has been based on study trips (Digital Archive of the Office for Contemporary Architecture) and historical and case study archives which grow with each scientific and research project.
