This course will provide knowledge in basic architectural forms, need for cooperation during design, complexities in architecture, basic geometric forms, a lot of design alternatives, as well as the two languages used in architecture. Physical laws for architecture. Scientific base for creation of architecture forms. Hierarchical cooperation in architecture: need of mathematics for ornaments. Sensor value of ornaments. Life and complexity in architecture – analogy with thermodynamics. Architecture, pattern and mathematics. The role of path design as a mean for relevance transfer. Modularity and design alternatives.
