Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to be in a position not to be satisfied with the objectively constructed real environment and to question common urban, residential and architectural concepts and to re-understand architecture in its essence.


Subject of course

Discovery of new formal principles in architecture. The design title stands for the meaning of an architecture, which should form a counterpoint to the objective view of architecture. In the foreground of this architectural design is the development of a new and independent architecture that takes no part in the historical shape or in current architectural styles.

Teaching methods

Designs explore architecture in its essence and are not content with the objectively built real environment. The questioning of common urban, residential and architectural concepts is the core of the design, whereby high quality of life and practical purpose are in the foreground of these considerations. The innovation takes place on all scale levels, from the design, object to the structural and detailed plan.
