Apart from the constant involvement of the Faculty of Music’s teaching staff in the current social and artistic life, it is also important to establish a reverse link - the active involvement of external artists and public in the Faculty of Music’s work. The architectural design should efficiently encourage, promote and demonstrate such involvement in addition to the activities of the Faculty itself.
