Based on international examples and expertise the conference with the title PERCEIVED TECHNOLOGIES IN THE MODERN MOVEMENT discussed the following questions: How was technology perceived by the designing architects? How was their collaboration with engineers and the selection of adequate building materials and systems as a part of the design process?

How and why did technology lead to the uniqueness of the innovative archtectural results?
