Abstract
Developing the students' understanding of the interactive relationship between architecture and structural systems is a complex and multistage process. At the Faculty of Architecture University of Technology classes are held, during which students gain a solid understanding of the structural systems and learn how to design them. In the later stages of education there are projects developed of various architectural forms in which students must demonstrate the ability to practical application of the knowledge gained. The final step is the work on a master's degree diploma, in which the student must demonstrate the ability of a comprehensive understanding of the design process as an interactive operation, involving many specialties.
