Working field: With regard to teaching, architectural design is the key competence of the subject area. The imparting of design skills is
central to the curriculum. The department Architecture for Health aims to provide students with the necessary skills to design healthcare facilities. The
design process requires the consideration of functional, medical, structural, economic as well as aesthetic aspects. The curriculum covers large-scale medical
institutions (such as hospitals) as well as smaller facilities (such as specialised institutions for the treatment of physical or psychological diseases, hospices
or retirement homes). Therefore the design process involves both questions of urban planning and building technology. Architecture for Health is concerned with
the design and operation of sustainable medical institutions. A focus on researching the principles of planning, construction and interior equipment will directly
benefit the teaching curriculum. Scientific methods will be explained, findings will be discussed in an academic environment and new solution approaches will be
exchanged in an interdisciplinary way. The abilities thus acquired offer a wide range of knowledge for any related field of architecture and societal issues.
An analysis of topics relevant to the field of architecture, such as demographic change, gender aspects, quality of life and scarcity of resources, must be
recognized as factors that increasingly influence architectural design. The design (process) reflects the relationship between health, built environment and
society. Successful applicants are expected to contribute actively to the development of the key research areas of TU Berlin and to participate in the faculty's
