The Institute

Philosopy und Organizational Structure

Architecture requires the integration of many aspects, wheather ambigous,subtle and ephemeral, or clear and definite. The work of an architect is rarely about a development as a linear process. It is more a web-like interaction of ideas and requirements.

This process of composition and invention leads to a good concept and buildable design. Architectural quality is achived when the interplay of materials, physics and building technology is incorporated with physical requirements, from form finding to the process of ageing. Within this context, the institute deals with concepts of resource conscious and energy efficientbuilding as well as with the sensible and proper use of building materials. Architects and engineers teach together, advising students on design projects from the early stages of their studies up to the final thesis.
