In the course of the Master program “Heritage Design” expert knowledge and skills in the domain of planning and building within a built context are acquired, and existing ones are further developed and applied.
In the scope of the studies, high priority is attributed to the comprehensive analysis and evaluation of existing conditions, in terms of historical, structural, material, spatial as well as formal characteristics. At the same time, interpreting and understanding the context regarding historical, sociological and cultural circumstances are of great importance. Together they form theoretical grounds for any further planning or design and are to be performed on a scientific level. Different approaches to design in the existing conditions are illustrated and discussed on a complex design task. The theoretical grounds concerning aforementioned topics are communicated in broadly laid-out interdisciplinary cross-related lectures. Independent preparation of a Master thesis together with the elaboration of a complex design and a scientific, analytical, written assignment, supported by thematic block seminars, excursions and workshops round up the studies.
