Angewandte Geometrie

Georg Glaeser

The lecture is about theory and the numerous appilcations of geometry. The seminar delves deeper into the subjects of the course. Students have the chance to select several of these subjects, to research them further, and to present their results. A special emphasis is put on the ability to express oneself using geometrically correct terminology, in the clarity of theideas… 2017W/2018S, Vorlesungen

Angewandte Mathematik

Georg Glaeser

This lecture about applied mathematics differs from conventional lectures on this subject. Its primary main goal is to stenghten A-level mathematical knowledge, and to be able to use it in practice. Thus, we will avoid the usually strategy of definitions, theorems, and proofs. The book "Der mathematische Werkzeugkasten -- Anwendungen in Kunst, Natur und Technik" accompanies this lecture. http://sodwana.uni-ak.ac.at/math/einleitung.html 2017W, Vorlesungen

Architekturentwurf I-V

Kazuyo Sejima

Village & Landscape As part of a continuing exploration that began with the urban block and followed with the city’s edge, we now look further afield towards the rural landscape and the village settlement. For many, architecture’s frontline is the city, defined by that steadfast characteristic of Modernity: urbanization. However, a recent shift in awareness has led some to reconsider… 2017W/2018S, Künstl. Einzelunterricht

Karin Raith

The course deals with the phenomenon of landscape and in particular with the forces behind the visual appearance of individual landscapes. What exactly is “landscape”? How do landscapes evolve? Why do certain cultural landscapes have certain characteristics - or in other words, why do they look the way they look? What natural conditions are they based on and what economic,… 2018S, Vorlesungen

Techniques and Tools for Digital Production 1

Daniela Kröhnert

Based on an intensive research about space, shape, structure and pattern students have to reinterpret various architectural typologies by means of digital and physical fabrication methods. The corner points of their analysis are used as border parameters for the ongoing design process. The aim is to develop new concepts for an intuitive digital design process. 2017W, Seminar

Sanford Kwinter

Physical Theory: Space, Time, Substance (Philosophy, Science) This course examines some late 20th century models of physical reality that have both impacted architectural (as well as urban and environmental) thought in recent decades and provided forms of explanation that have freed us from the simplistic and one-dimensional understandings provided by mere common sense. In large measure, these models represent foundational… 2017W, Vorlesungen
