This studio emphasizes teamwork, which brings up different creative and systemic approaches. The tasks are approached through a dialogue, involving as many team members as possible, while respecting the sovereignty of individual authors. 


Apart from the main task for each semester, students simultaneously work also on other minor projects or participate in competitions. At least on intensive 10-hour task is prepared in each semester, which is often related to the tasks solved by other studios. If possible, the teaching process is connected to the practical use, i.e. the producers. The teachers support, to the maximum extent, contacts with foreign design schools through scholarships and student exhibitions. 

Design work requires a wide scope of theoretic and practical knowledge, which is acquired by the students at the lectures. The competitiveness of future designers depends on a combination of talent, creativity, intelligence, hard work, knowledge, understanding of the international trends and sensitivity to one's creative roots. It is difficult to say if these qualities can be taught at all; however it is certainly possible to cultivate and deepen students' interest, which is the basic precondition for future professional success.
