The Institute of Ecological and Experimental Architecture comprises a variety of sciences dealing with the environment quality. They deal with the environment defined by the geographical conditions, culture, history, etc. The complexity of environment and its manifold understanding have been a part of research and educational application. They develop into a creative activity that is based on the environment protection and cultural heritage perspective. The programs of the Institute are, at the Faculty of Architecture, accredited in all degree levels – Bachelor, Masters and PhD.
The second degree of study (Master Degree) is oriented on the following topics:
-the basis for ecologically determined design and environmental nature of architecture
-material and style links between architecture and environment (regional architecture)
-practical experience and methods of ecologically determined design (solar energy, alternative energy resources, etc…)
-alternative building materials and technologies,
-search for boundary settings for urban-architectural concept, limited by an existing built area
-conditions for sustainable development of urban settlements and issues of urban democracy.

Suggested Collaboration Opportunities
Potential collaboration modalities
-Environmental assessment of buildings and neighbourhoods
-Sustainable Urban design
-Safer Cities
Institute is recently starting Project Safer Cities Education 2015-2016 supported with the help of SlovakAid, Slovak Republic development program, project promotes tertiary education in the field of Urban Safety, focusing on a global interdisciplinary approach, connecting safety to sustainable architecture and urbanism and to environmental, social and economic concerns.
The aim of this project is to organize intensive workshops for students at 3 universities, focusing on architecture and urbanism in Bratislava (Slovakia), Nairobi (Kenya) and Madrid (Spain). Workshops of a similar nature have not yet been carried out in schools. This project supports international transfer of experience, involving students from Slovakia, Kenya and Spain, up to experts from Slovakia, Spain, Brazil and Kenya, who have already organized similar workshops for various different groups (police force, residents, local authorities, etc.) in Brazil and Spain. Our part in this project is use the experience from our active participation in the European project CPTED in 2008-2010, from the training and workshop in Riga organized by CEPOL in 2012.
