Master Thesis

Open Studio

Open Studio is a project class in which students are given a structured time to explore and develop their own architectural ideas and processes. In regular gatherings all participants come together to discuss their work with other students, faculty, and guests. A series of presentations, lectures and other inputs will be given during the semester to support individual and collective development.


WS20/21 Expanding Design: Habitat

The seminar "Expanding Design: Habitat" questions various aspects surrounding the notion of HABITATS in architecture; from personal HABITS (How do we live? How do we want to live?) to the diversity of HABITATS (How does the context inform our buildings? How does the environment influence architecture?) and finally the practice of INHABITING (How do we occupy space? How should we occupy space? How would we like to occupy space?).

SS20 Expanding Design: Interior

The seminar "Expanding Design: INTERIOR" focuses conceptually on the broad notion of the interior in architectural and artistic thinking (what does the interior mean in relation to its container? What does the interior show or not show/hide? How does the exterior relate to the interior? How can we turn things inside-out?). Through the idea of transgressing boundaries, the seminar proposes artistic design-thinking by turning the inside-out.

WS19/20 Experimental Ground: Los Angeles

The seminar "Experimental Ground: Los Angeles" sets out to study the US West Coast City Los Angeles by focusing on its contemporary architecture and artistic environment. In the seminar, students use the method of artistic research by gathering knowledge through various media and experiment with their findings through applied design and artistic thinking. The seminar is structured around three different fields of depth: Ecology, Artifact and Manipulation.
