Full Professor (W3) for Theory
INSTITUTE OF THEORY OF ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN I APRIL 1ST, 2018
This chair combines architectural theory in research and teaching
as independent science with an imaginative, creative and
adventurous applied design theory. Engaging in the discourse
between tradition and progress, the focus of this professorship
will be on the epistemological and art-theoretical definition of
architecture - especially of modern to contemporary architecture -
and on transferring the resulting findings into a conceptual
design theory. The development of new research projects and an
exceptional readiness to collaborate interdisciplinary are an integral
requirement. The professorship shall re-examine and scrutinize
the identity concepts of architects and in doing so strengthen their
scientific and artistic position. In addition, the position demands to
widen the definition of architecture and to reformulate it anew in
respect of changing fields of work, technologies and social aspects.
