Architects shape public and private space, bear responsibility towards society and the environment, and respond to economic, social and technical change. We therefore understand and practice architecture as a combination of complementary topics and competencies, which are also continuously related in the course of study. The goal of our study concept is the increasing dissolution of classical barriers between the disciplines and the promotion of interdisciplinary approaches and working methods. We are guided by the model of an "architecture workshop" in which students, staff, lecturers and professors work, research and discuss their subject together.
