Architecture, Exploration and Reflection

7,5 Credits, Bachelor's level, Summer Term 2020

This summer course offers the opportunity for architecture students to immerse in a process-oriented project work and to explore a site-specific architectural issue. Within the course, we explore which role architecture can have in relation to social and environmental aspects in society. Critical reflection and evaluation of the own work process and the results are important aspects of the course.
