  • Dalibor Hlaváček

    The conference, entitled “New Dimensions”, focused primarily on the increase in scale and the overlapping of disciplines in the practice and education of architects, urbanists and landscape architects. The Faculty of Architecture CTU considers the overlapping of these disciplines in its educational programmes and wants to discuss and share its experience on this topic.


  • With each of the EAAE Annual Conferences, we delve into a topic we are concerned with in our everyday lives as architectural educators, researchers and leaders. 'New Dimensions' addressed different aspects of our professional fields as architects, urbanists and landscape architects. One of these dimensions, if not the dimension, is sustainability and the development of a social model for a healthy planet.

  • Ladislav Lábus

    We feel we are at the start of new dimensions of our profession. The increase in scale and the overlapping of disciplines in the fields of architecture – urbanism – landscape architecture in current practice needs to be reflected in current education.


  • Steven Holl based his entire discussion on the following factors: Embrace green landscape space, Maximise fresh air and natural light, Open circulation + Social space, Outside simulcast, distanced seats in auditorium, Ecological integration. Each of these factors is associated with Holl’s projects as examples.

    Panel moderated by Osamu Okamura, Architect, teacher and Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Architecture of the Technical University in Liberec / FUA TUL.
