Catalogue data

AbstractIn the context of the semester-long design projects, the reciprocity between design, construction and materiality is reinforced.
One focus is the coherence of design and construction.

In the process of developing a project's constructional aspects, design intentions become formulated in a more precise and binding way.
ObjectiveThe integration of knowledge gained in the basic courses lends the work an additional dimension and demands of the students an increasingly integrative ability to think and design.
ContentThis part of the curriculum addresses design work in different areas of architecture and integrates the knowledge acquired in previous years. It involves the active participation of specialists from related disciplines (e.g. building structures, landscape architecture, history of art and architecture, monuments conservation etc.).
Prerequisites / NoticeFor your attention:
Your presence at the introduction lesson taking place at the beginning of the semester (date will be communicated in due time) is compulsory for all further work within the Integrated Discipline Construction.

The Integrated Discipline Construction at BUK consists of the obligatory introductory event, the central elements Exercise 1 + 2, Presentation and Interim Criticism, as well as the final submission.
