Learning outcomes:

The main purposes of the Practical Applications of Architectural Technology 2 (APTA 2) are to develop the ability of the students to evaluate and synthesize the technical information needed to design the execution details and to acquire appropriate knowledge of drafting and drawing up technical plans.


The study topics proposed for each module follow the main chapters covered in the Architecture Detailing (2) course.
Having as support the architectural project delivered at the architectural studio in the 2nd year- 4th semester, possible solutions for the following systems will be studied:
• An interior staircase / stairs.
• Roof covering.
• Windows, interior and exterior doors.

Teaching Method:

Individual or group discussions based on detailed sketches and documentation taught before each module.


The final drawings will be submitted one day before the scheduled presentation, during the summer session
In order to pass the discipline, it is necessary to obtain an average of at least 5.00 (five), without rounding
The following criteria will be considered:
the quality of the documentation as part of the individual study as well as the correctness and quality of the proposed solutions and details;
• correctness of graphic representation;
• active participation during practical applications.

The practical applications will be elaborated in groups of 2 students.

Before each application it is mandatory to go through the theoretical notions, document and sketch the proposed solution for each announced topic.

It’s mandatory uploading the materials (sketches, documentation, drawings) before each application.
