AbstractThis part of the curriculum addresses design work in different areas of architecture and urbanism 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.).
ObjectiveToday architectural sketching without the employment of information technologies is only meaningful in exceptional cases. CAD plans, three-dimensional rendering, CNC model construction etc. are pervasive media for the development and presentation of architectural drafts. This elective course tries to follow questions on a new plateau: Which are the common traits of current design methods and modern information technologies and how can they symbiotically lead to a new architectural expressions in formal and constructional regard. Draft-accompanying, these questions are pursuit on a theoretical level, in order to be able to find its expression in the concrete draft. Ascertained technical applications are not ment to be of priority.
