Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


The students reflect on and experimentally apply special design methods and strategies in the architectural design process. For this reason, the seminar is intended to be a type of research laboratory which examines and further develops design processes in architecture. In addition, the connection to innovative digital and analogue production is sought. Depending on the complexity of the task, the continuous and well-founded work on the most diverse scales follows by means of interdisciplinary research. The aim and starting point of a practical and theoretical assignment is to review an independently compiled “thesis”.
