Increasing complexities in our society are yielding enormous challenges, which become all
the more urgent due to globalisation, shortages of resources, and continuous digitalisation. Hence, it will be crucial to
break with overly linear ways of thinking in the future and generate new concepts and realities tailored to these specific
challenges through architectural education, teaching, research, and practice.
With the international orientation
of the Institute of Architecture (IoA) the focus is placed on profound technical training as well as strategies to respond
to the most urgent questions we are facing in the future. Accordingly, the IoA studio programme concentrates on the development
of conceptual, practical, and critical skills and means for the creation of new, compelling and forward thinking architecture.
By integrating technical fields (Building Design, Energy Design, Structural Design) into the studio, students have an opportunity
to develop and deepen their understanding of construction and technical knowledge in work on own projects. Content and formal
supplements are offered in the Departments of the History of Architecture and Theory of Architecture, Digital Techniques,
and Urban and Social Strategies.
