Michal Hronský , Peter Mazalán
The development of generating methods for architecture pushes the medium towards new intellectual codes. The theoretical and architectural discourse, influenced by philosophy, sociology, and literature creates by its multiplicity still opened and complicated discussion in the 20th century. Architectural education reflects the need for such creative participation with other media at different levels depending on the possibilities or focus of the university where architecture is taught. The paper focuses on a case study from the Faculty of Architecture of the Slovak Technical University (abbreviate FASTU), where, besides other visual media, it is also possible to attend scenography as an optional course. It also deals with the reasons to build such an intermediary learning process. Theater, like architecture, has always had great power and the potential to open discussion and be a critical mirror of complicated political and social phenomena. The aim of the study is to analyze the alternative method in education and in the teaching of architecture.
