General description of the course

The subject consists of a series of lectures and seminars. Lectures provide theoretical knowledge on information processes in architecture, covering such aspects as: a conscious decision-making in the complex environment of modern design work, the role of information technology in design, new architectural concepts, such as information architecture, media, new geometries, problems of visual perception (optical illusions and their use), role and definitions of parametric and generative design, theoretical foundations of prototyping and fabrication.

The seminars are dedicated to presentations and discussions on selected thematic areas within the scope of the application of information techniques in design. An essential element is a final work in the form of a podcast and scientific text, complying with standards of the conference publication.
