Dear colleagues and friends,

Welcome to the Department of History and Theory of Architecture!

The core principles of teaching the history and theory of architecture are rooted in the very early years of our educational institution, while the list and content of disciplines was expanding and changing with the progress in architecture and architectural education. Our teachers are of high qualification; many of them have academic degrees and titles, and most of them are practicing architects. Members of our staff hold diverse researches, write articles and books, and make expert examinations of historical buildings. 

 

The disciplines taught at the department embrace various aspects of the history and theory of architecture, urban planning, design and landscape architecture, spatial composition, and theoretical fundamentals and the methodology of design. Altogether, the department staff teach 22 disciplines. The “Architecture” course is accompanied with educational complexes, working programs, methodological instructions for the implementation of grade projects and graphical tasks, etc.

 

The choice to grade works’ topics and design projects in the major discipline of “Introduction to the Architectural Design” is based on the modern trends in architecture and construction development. The topics of design projects embrace urban planning sites, small architectural forms, landscape design, etc. Special attention is paid to the techniques of professional submission of prepared design projects. 

 

Besides lectures, the department teachers hold practical seminars with first-grade students on architectural design, architectural graphics, modeling and spatial composition. The department maintains active educational programs for graduate students, interns, and postgraduate students; organizes scientific conferences and seminars; issues numerous articles and monographs, arranges exhibits and public educational programs, including that with support of the Council for Preservation of Cultural Heritage affiliated with the St. Petersburg Government. Within the frame of scientific activities, the department maintains postgraduate studies in the field of the ”History and theory of architecture, restoration and redevelopment of the historical and architectural heritage.” Undergraduate students take part in international introductory trips to get acquainted with the global architectural heritage.

 

While this is not an easy thing to be a student of the Architectural Faculty, it is exciting and challenging. For a young specialist, architectural specializations open broad possibilities in architecture, interior and landscape design, restoration, urban planning and many other spheres. This work requires a lot of efforts, talent, and professional skills, but it pays back with the confidence in your capacities and great satisfaction from the implemented design projects and creativity!
