MODULE 1_BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

During the course of the degree programme we look at different construction methods. From wood, steel, and concrete construction to the cladding of a building, the mechanisms are recorded and account is taken of facility technology, ecology, and energy-conscious construction. In doing so, technology and construction are always considered in conjunction with aesthetic criteria.

MODULE 3_DESIGNING AND PLANNING

The topics addressed by architecture and urban planning are diverse, complex, and far-reaching. Social and societal change, the sparing use of resources required for urban and rural structures, economic upheaval, and technical possibilities demand a constant stream of new, individual solutions. The aim of the degree programme is to support students in their efforts to find such solutions and in their aesthetic expression of design and to work together with them to develop strategies to ensure high design quality in the long term. In this way, students will develop socially responsible behaviours for architecture and urban planning.

MODULE 4_HISTORY AND THEORY

The study of architectural history trains the ability to recognize and interpret situational contexts and teaches perception, interpretation, and judgement. Topics from contemporary international architectural discourse will be selected and discussed from different perspectives in order to develop and hone individual viewpoints.
