Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague

There are four architectural studios at the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague, each with a specific pedagogical focus.



Since its founding, the Department of Architecture has benefited from cooperation with art departments and departments of applied art. Students have the opportunity to develop their skills while being taught in the scope of craft techniques, sculpting, painting, and drawing. In addition to being linked with applied arts disciplines, the Department of Architecture profits from its curriculum of accompanying technical education and maintains close cooperation with a number of experts, and specialists in a wide range of fields. 


AAAD consists of twenty four studios which are grouped within five departments: architecture, design, fine art, applied arts and graphics. The sixth department provides lectures on art history and aesthetics.
