Description

Content: Based on the topic of the pre-diploma project (Architectural Design 5), the construction will be developed in an integrative process parallel to the design. In this way, students test the interaction of architectural parameters - such as the influence of constructive decisions on the overall concept (and vice versa) and the contribution of tectonics and detailing to the formal expression of the architecture. Depending on the brief of the pre-diploma project and the individual interests of the students, a specific topic is defined for each of them, which has to be systematically examined.

Ideally, three possible construction variants should be considered and then the variant that best fits the design idea should be worked out in detail.

Objective: The aim is to use the understanding acquired through research as knowledge that guides the design process and to develop a construction that enriches the architectural concept.

Scope of work: The project will consist of 1) a research part (e.g. analysis of reference examples in terms of comparable requirements and structural design solutions) including a documentation of the results. 2) Integration of the studied principles into the design; elaboration of a constructive + design solution.

Examination Modalities

Submission of the project in digital form and on paper including documentation of the research work and presentation of the constructive solution.
