|Course type:||Lectures and Seminars|
|Proj/lab/semin hours:||15||Lecture hours:||15|
Classes will be conducted on two parallel planes:
1. The seminar shall present materials prepared by the instructors, factographic content collected by participants, and papers consisting of the outcomes of exercises conducted in parallel. All data presented during the seminar shall serve to expand the knowledge base on methods of prototyping and experience in this field. The database, in the form of WIKI hypertext, shall be built in a network environment.
2. The laboratory sessions shall take teams of participants through successive phases of the preparing of a spatial prototype (from defining initial conditions, through concepts for fabrication, developing documentation, learning equipment operation, and post–processing, all the way to a critical assessment of results). Each phase requires the completion of laboratory exercises and the description of the effect in a seminar paper.
