Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will have found and developed their own artistic and intellectual interests and means of expression.
They will have developed and tested adequate forms of presentation and documentation for creative/artistic projects.
They will, in particular, learn about the possibilities of interaction between analog and digital media. These forms of representation are recognized in the process of architectural design not only as final means of description, but also as competing techniques and tools of design. Students will be aware of the connections between the design and presentation of their own ideas in a cross-media form.
