ABT | Studio culture & rules – additional script for organisation & creativity
65 students in one class
effective organisation need to be precise & smart
65 students in one design studio means smart organisation for the best possible creative results, for total control over big amount of projects, guided by professor with only one assistant

What is Appropriate Building / Architecture Technology - ABT AAT
Appropriate building/ architecture technology’s ABT theory 6 rules: Small-scale, Decentralised, Labour-intensive, Energy efficient, Environmentally sound/friendly, Locally autonomous. Theory of ABT origin. Wide range of ABT fields. ABT predecessors. At as umbrella term. ABT practitioners in recent history and contemporary emerging practices. ABT movements.
Dammuso vs Hidmo
what a discovery!
1000 nad 1000 km apart, similar climate conditions, similar living compound concepts with ONE BIG DIFFERENCE!
PhD D Batista unexpected discovery of amazing equalities and contradictions between two continents vernacular architectural phenomena Dammuso compound and Hidmo compound. Thousands of miles of geographical distance, different cultures, climate conditions, but elementary design principles are unbelievably similar almost the same. With one big and lifesaving ground breaking difference…
ABT - Nature technology of Chlorophyll
Lecture on how to source from nature’s technologies
What are the direct spaces into which every human being enters? Artificial or produced one je clothing, but natural is definitely natural phenomena of air, water, soil, minerals and chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is all around us.
Its omnipresence is total. This ingenious substance or process je PhD Batista taken as a basis for the production of good architecture. Nature technology of chlorophyll is an eloquent natural teacher of ecological, sustainable, green design approaches.
ABT - Powers of Ten, 1968
The Powers of Ten films are two short American documentary films written and directed by Charles and Ray Eames.
Essential for understanding relativity of space, scale and dimension.
This famous and ground-breaking movie about the relativity of perception, the visible, the perceived helps students to travel in more than three dimensions.
