Infant architectural education was built at last century on the fantasy and ornamental patterns. These methods produced attractive results, but were at the same time inducing some kind of modernistic art values in scholar training and infantile thinking. Nowadays afterpostmodern art and architecture are more distanced from playfulness and striving for critical and genetic-historical approach and thus are able to widen the scope of infantile imagination toward critical attitudes.
