There are four architectural studios at the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague, each with a specific pedagogical focus. Since its founding, the Department of Architecture has benefited from cooperation with art departments and departments of applied art. Students have the opportunity to develop their skills while being taught in the scope of craft techniques, sculpting, painting, and drawing. In addition to being linked with applied arts disciplines, the Department of Architecture profits from its curriculum of accompanying technical education and maintains close cooperation with a number of experts, and specialists in a wide range of fields. This profile makes it an unparalleled institution in the field of educating future architects. The evidence is in numerous awards won by students and graduates of the UMPRUM architecture studios in both domestic and international architectural competitions.
