Short description: The subject introduces the principles of design and organization of visual structures. It offers universal rules applicable in every type of project activity. It characterizes the elements, their characteristics, behavior, types of relationships and the possibility of mutual correlations. The methods of conduct in the field of design, reaching solutions to the search and improvement of an idea.
Full description: "Elements of the composition: point, line, plane, spatial form - components of the composition - characteristics of the properties and methods of their use; Composition as the organization of order between elements. Organizing tools in composition. Composition mechanics: Forms of relations between elements. Features of elements as determinants of composition. Visual structures - modular mesh as a composition structure. Types of space in the composition arrangement. Techniques of visual expression. Rules for the presentation of design ideas."

Learning outcomes: "Knowledge: The student is familiar with the essence of the composition. The student has the knowledge in relation to the rules of composition and seperation of elements. He or she is able to define the attributes of compositional elements and determine the compositional dependence. Skills: The student can organize compositional arrangement, select the measures and identify the objective of compositional activity. He or she can predict the effect of compositional procedures in the field of endogenous and exogenous. He can apply the effect of composite actions using two- and three- dimensional scale. Skills: The student can predict and appropriately apply the compositional effects. The student can has knowledge of composition theory reference to the situation of the landscape. The student can cornered a design and drawing workshop in composition of elementary structures of two and three-dimensional. The student can can present, justify and defend design concepts. Social competence - is aware of the universal design principles, - Can analyze the design reality in terms of compositional suitability "
Assessment methods and assessment criteria: Students who pass the tests are obliged to take an exam during the exam session. The exam takes the form of a project task, understood as a presentation of mastering knowledge from the topics discussed. If the exam is not counted in the first term, the student has the right to re-pass it orally or in writing within the correcting period.
