The course involves the application and integration of previously acquired knowledge through the preparation of the final design project. By means of independent work as well as by work with a mentor in the selected module, ie, design studio, students should prove that they are capable to work as associates in the preparation of project documentation or architectural supervision of works after graduation.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
1. introducing the students to methods of integration of basic architectural elements into complex architectural structures;
2. responding to complex program requirements and functional standards
3. translating basic program requirements into spatial strategies and design deliverables;
4. developing the student capability to design multifunctional buildings designated for special group of users from conceptual to final project;
5. application of theoretical knowledge of sociology, basic design and architectural constructions;
6. understanding the role of exploration, dialogue and diagramming in design process; developing graphic and three-dimensional presentation skills;
7. developing verbal communicating skills;
