Adaptation of transport buildings infrastructure and means of transport in architecture


Abstract: The most common recycling activities consist in downcycling, i.e. obtaining component elements from used materials. The idea of upcycling lies in reusing materials by increasing the value of the waste product and attributing a new utility function to it. This process involves as-close-as-possible preservation of the form in which the product played its former function through a creative adaptation to new needs and with a limited number of processing operations. A remarkable idea of upcycling can be illustrated with the below-presented examples of the innovative use of public transport buildings, other infrastructure and means of transport in architecture.


Key words: upcycling, recycling, transport, infrastructure, architecture, cradle-to-cradle

Designing of communication tools in creative sectors


Abstract: The need to create messages is present in all aspects of live and conscious activities of man, at each stage of human development. The signs created in complex structures transfer communication signals which display the necessity of socialisation in a family, surroundings, ethnic or cultural communities. The condition for good communication and smooth flow of information is collective consciousness and high competence of the designing team. The use of one communication system facilitates cooperation and removes potential errors. The article presents the circumstances of using communication tools in specific situations, at numerous levels of perception, in many objective contexts, in subjective receipt and transfer of information, at the level of developed technical communicators, applied in the activities of specific groups. All presented examples of communication tools refer to personal experience that has been recently gained by the author of the article in the fields of science, art, culture, engineering and new technologies, as well as personal reflection on the changeability and magnitude of communication codes and systems generated in our times.


Key words: communication tools, communication design, communication in art, communication in science

What story can space tell? A message closed in a sign of geometry


Abstract: Space is like a story with specific content hidden in specific signs. The signs are information such as functions and combinations of metaphors and creative intentions. The text touches upon the cultural memory of signs and the geometric representation of forms in space. It indicates that the need for a geometric recording of space results not only from the need for computation, but is also a carrier of an abstract expression of ideas for entire social communities.

Communicating with the environment using a luminous form of interior design


Abstract: Thanks to the advances in technology, several technologies have emerged in the last quarter of a century to illuminate furniture coatings, or create luminescent forms of interior design, introducing a new way of receiving these elements and the ability to broadcast information. Illumination can take the form of animation, pictorial interfaces or interactive projections that allow communication with the user, but also control their appearance for the emission of simple social signals. As a result of many years of my experience in combining digital projections with interior design forms, it follows that apart from the obvious functions of the interface, the moving luminosity of the surrounding objects evokes a number of mental patterns from the current human environment. The projection activity of the environment, can build the interior reception, easily create moods, define functions or readiness for use, warn or calm down. My attempts, which were purely artistic, can be used for communication purposes, in a more intuitive way than writing or other graphic signs. However, the activity of the environment must be metered and selectively designed to avoid information cacophony, choose communication techniques and projection technologies appropriate to the specific tasks and predispositions of the human psyche. Presented methods for creating a luminous shell of interior elements, use already familiar technologies: diode, projectors or laser projectors, or touch screens, but also need engineering support in matters of power supply, control or data transfer. The key seems to be interaction or mobile communication, which have a chance to go here in the scale of the human body, launch a multi-sensory contact with the multimedia environment. Conceptual student projects of the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw indicate the possibilities of new media in interiors, propose visually attractive and innovative solutions that are waiting to be used in business. There is also a noticeable scientific potential and a wide field of research in cooperation with the Academy of Fine Arts in such fields as: electronics, IT, architecture, material engineering and psychology.

Item status and communication context


Abstract: Present day, saturated with information, data transmission and multi-band communication, means that design and the role of the designer are included in this current of mutual communication. The subject is thus intended to inform about specific content. So design, taking into account not only functional, formal and technological factors, is also focused on meeting the need to express a message and the internal order of expressiveness of the user. The subject of the following text is a reflection on the status of the subject in the context of its role as a means of communication. In the perspective of the present, the object can be treated as a sign, by which its utility and aesthetic value is supplemented with meaning. The general analysis is supported by examples from available sources that illustrate the discussed issue.


Key words: sign, object, designer, communication

Emotions and practicality in designers’ perception of vehicles


Abstract: The aim of the article is analysing the designers’ statements from the monograph “Wroclaw School of Means of Transport Design. 1966-2018” by means of three levels of perception: visceral, behavioural and reflective. The reactions of the experienced designers from the Wroclaw creative environment to the evaluated products confirm the validity of Don Norman’s theory, while the awareness of these cognitive processes can facilitate understanding between designers and representatives of technical professions, who need to cooperate in the course of creating new products.


Key words: design, means of transport design, emotions, practicality, three levels of perception

Art of architecture as a relay of information?


Abstract: The modern world has become a global village. There has been a point where communication can take place in real time between the callers regardless of the distance that separates them. The image of the "flat earth" has acquired a new, symbolic meaning. As a result, we have access to an unlimited number of messages from around the world. Consequently, the information transmitted loses its individual characteristics through its excessive dissemination. Hence, they also lose some of their significance and impact. As a result, recipients no longer feel the value of messages and everything becomes generally relative... Unfortunately, a similar picture of unifying and losing the individual character of the message has also been observed in the field of art (including architecture) for years. Therefore, it is worth considering what architecture will tell us about next generations ? Can it be treated as an information carrier? The thoughts were illustrated by several examples of architecture – both completed and conceptual objects (in the form of a diploma thesis).


Key words: architecture, education, communication, relay, global village, culture

Motorcycle – an aesthetic technical object


Abstract: The first motorcycle was created over 130 years ago. Today people use motorcycles for at least several reasons, that is: their operation is relatively cheap, they are easy to maneuver in crowded cities, riding a motorcycle gives a sense of freedom and independence. Regardless of the reason for using motorcycles, some owners of these two-wheelers vehicles are making great efforts to give their motorcycles individual and unique character. The desire to stand out from the crowd of identical serial machines is a reason to spend a lot of time and financial resources. The main purpose of this study was to present the basic possibilities of giving the motorcycle individual features desired by its owner along with examples. And aesthetics will be understood here as a nice and tasteful look.


Key words: motorbike, aesthetics, form
