At Architecture Typology from TU Berlin you learn to bring together very different and sometimes conflicting requirements and objectives in the design process to create a holistic architectonic solution. 


Key facts

Architecture Typology from TU Berlin focuses closely on building typology. In order to confront current challenges, building typologies are rethought and tools developed that enable nuanced responses to complex questions in the respective context. This is done using established typological methods of analysis and design as well as new, experimental, digital, and speculative practices of creating types.


After the master's degree program in Architecture Typology, the focus of your work is on planning design, construction, and types. Following your degree, you will need to work professionally for at least two years before you may be entered into a German federal state’s list of registered architects. 

As an architect, you can be hired to work in architectural offices or work as a freelancer. In addition, you can work in public service, for example with the building authorities or in construction companies and housing associations.
