Building Construction A

Franz Sam

Description Institut Building constructionLessons und training courses (VU), S00491, 2.0 hours per semester The lecture imparts expertise on the interplay of building parts in constructions, while taking into account selected building materials.The focus is concepts of "monomateriality" - i.e., one singel material ist used for creating the volume, the load bearing structure and the skin of the building. Special attention… 2018W, Vorlesung und Übungen

Building Construction C

Franz Sam

Building Constructions C / Innovative Building Constructions the seminar imparts expertise on the interplay of construction elements in buildings for extreme demands and strains (extreme climatic conditions, high loads, extreme position and assembly conditions, exeptional building dimensions and span of the load bearing structure, complex shapes, special material applications, etc.) Acrucial criterion for innovative building constructions is efficiency (optimal relationship… 2019S, Seminar

Building Construction Integration

Anja Jonkhans

Organizational frame: According to the Curriculum of the Architecture master programme, 9 ECTS from the subject groups “Realisation”, “Theory”, and “Management, Practice and Communication” must be completed as integrated courses in connection with Architectural Design (Architectural Design 5). Students will work on the contents of the various subjects based on their own designs (§ 5 par. 7). Building Construction Integration… 2018W, Seminar

Building Construction Integration

Karin Raith

Content: Based on the topic of the studio project (Architectural Design 5), the construction will be developed in an integrative process parallel to the overall concept. In this way, students test the interaction of architectural parameters - such as the influence of constructive decisions on the design (and vice versa) and the contribution of tectonics and detailing to the formal… 2018W/2019S, Seminar

Building Construction Integration

Franz Sam

Based on the topic of the studio design project (Architectural design 5) the construction design shall be developed concurrently with the form and spatial design in an integrative process.Focusing its content on to the aspects of realisation of building constructions as well as the process of cooperation with contributing experts it helps to implement relevant knowledge during an ongoing design… 2019S, Seminar

History and Theory of Landscapes: Notes on site-specificity

Karin Raith

History and Theory of Landscapes: Notes on site-specificity in architecture "Whether inside the white cube or out in the Nevada desert, whether architectural or landscape-oriented, site-specific art initially took the ‘site’ as an actual location, a tangible reality, its identity composed of a unique combination of constitutive physical elements...” This is one of the first sentences of Miwon Kwon's seminal… 2019S, Vorlesungen

Privatissimum für DissertantInnen

Karin Raith

Criticism, support and guidance for writing a dissertation. 2018W/2019S, Privatissimum

Raum und Konstruktion

Karin Raith

Construction is both an instrument for producing spaces and objects and a means of artistic expression - a sort of language. The course imparts basic knowledge of the syntax and vocabulary of this language and deals with key construction principles applicable to physical objects of various sizes (architecture, furniture, articles of daily use). Which physical and geometrical laws are to… 2018W, Vorlesung und Übungen
