Special features regarding teaching
The focus of the training of young students is on architectonic design and the commitment to an artistic and experimental understanding of architecture and design in its social, political and cultural context. The aim of the course is to develop an autonomous artistic and creative approach by the students based on a solid foundation of construction and technology. Mandatory placements and periods abroad aim to give the students the professional skills they need as designing architects.

Special features regarding the international orientation
The teaching language is generally German. Most disciplines, however, also offer bilingual (German/English) teaching formats.
