Architecture is the most complex art of four dimensions. There are no plots in it, unlike in painting, but it constantly tells us something.

Who is the lecturer?
I believe that art is extremely talkative, and it can be both quite noisy and very quiet and shy. But in any case, it always tends to tell us something. Art speaks to us with the help of line, color, composition, harmony ... or lack of them. And our goal is to hear and understand this message. This is what we will learn to do in our lectures.

It is important to teach you to establish your own dialogue with artworks. This dialogue can be very personal, and it’s wonderful, because in art we are partially looking for a reflection of ourselves.
