Architecture - Design for the built environment
Building in context, and the history, identity as well as future of architecture and the city are social challenges and tasks for architects. Why not study this in Heidelberg and Europe?
Having completed the Master’s degree in Architecture-Design for the Built Environment, you will be perfectly equipped for an increasingly global and international world. Your English and intercultural skills will enable you to collaborate with people from other cultures, jointly leveraging this potential. Working in an architecture firm at home or abroad, you will be able to make a direct contribution to the wide-ranging debate on important social challenges, such as dealing with existing architecture and urban structures or creating tomorrow’s people-friendly and climate-friendly cities.
The master’s programme „Architecture - Design for the built environment“ starts with the following modules, that are taken in the first semester: Architectural Theory, Building Construction I + II, Urban Analysis and Representation. Together, we focus on a reflexive approach towards architecture and the city: we develop architectural ideas, concepts and theories, and implement them in architectural design. In the second semester, we concentrate on an existing building, taking the steps of analysis, design and building construction in existing fabric. Besides working in the university, we also explore the object on site. A variety of electives round off the semester before you start the Master`s Thesis.
