Recruitment 2024

Multidimensional Design, first-cycle studies

Head of the studio: prof. ASP dr hab. Marek Średniawa

Assistant: dr Tomasz Kwiatkowski


Our goal is to shape the creative and critical attitude of future designers. We strive to develop their imagination and analytical skills, and to build their ability to use them to solve design problems. The studio's curriculum is based on conscious execution of the design process.

The challenges posed to students are contained within the scope of forming an idea, programming and carrying out research and experiments, and defining the form of a solution. Some inquiries are only about ideas, some only about research and experimentation, none only about defining the form of the solution.

We are more interested in the path we take in our work than in the goal we are aiming for. The most interesting adventures we meet along the way, and the goal – well, the goal doesn't always have to be reached... Sometimes a spectacular disaster brings more experience than another success.

We run classes at three levels of initiation. Design propaedeutics as part of the design knowledge programme, ergonomic design as part of the first and second degree programmes, and comprehensive design as part of the diploma course. In the studio we use, dedicated to our needs, tools for managing as well as collecting and exchanging information included in the online virtual studio.

First degree studies

We believe that the most important thing for a designer is the ability to realise the design process, from formulating a design problem, through defining assumptions, searching for a solution, to developing a design conclusion and presenting it.

We put special emphasis on teaching the skills of acquiring and analysing information to use it in the design process, and teaching the skills of conducting simple tests and experiments to verify the concept of solving a design problem.

We assume that the conditions of a designer's creative activity are constantly changing. To cope with them, it is necessary to develop adaptation mechanisms, using one's knowledge, imagination, intuition and ability to think creatively.
