The focus is on the integral development of an architectural project which integrates key topics from the fields of technology and resources, history and theory as well as perception and representation and reinforces them in terms of questions relevant to research.

The topics can be chosen freely or from one of the arranged projects I-III.

In agreement with the supervising subject area and upon approval by a committee appointed by the faculty council, the independently developed programme and schedule is implemented in a suitable form of presentation. After analysing the location and programme, the students develop an urbanistic and architectural concept and prepare it spatially, structurally and constructively in a suitable form of presentation.
