Special features regarding teachingThe architecture training focuses on research-oriented design and project studies – real design tasks as well as interdisciplinary experiments form the basic foundation here. Architecture is a complex relational structure between understanding history and theory construction, design, project and reflection, experimentation and academic work, as well as craftsmanship and the use of digital tools. A close link between Architecture and Town Planning also ensures a holistic approach towards the built and designed environment.
