To architecture

Branislav Dohnány


Recently there have been new professional pieces of architectural work that present professional deformation of architecture. The cause of this state is the more frequent dictation of the investor which leads to the breakdown of legislative and aesthetical standards in the architectural creation. It is necessary to react to these phenomena by better educating the new generation of architects so they will be able to direct and implement the whole process of architectural creation. New requirements of practice should reflect new principles for architectural education and their adoption in the curriculum. The model for inspiration can be the education of architects at the IIT (Illinois Institute of Technology) in Chicago, USA. The organisational structure at the FA STU should be adapted to the new conditions of practice, thus strengthening the universal character of the study which should lead to better economic effectiveness.
