Bachelor 1. Year/G&D1


Sculptural Design

Collage Copyright: Friedrich

By manually grasping objects and spaces, we internalize our perception physically and establish a mental basis for creative thinking.

In the workshops and studios of the department we investigate methods of plastic and spatial design in the experimental handling of classical and unconventional materials. We focus on the development of skills that develop during the making process. The slowed down time of manual work then enables reflection and fantasy from the concrete material experience.


Visual Studies

In this course, the goals pursued in the previous semester are expanded and deepened. After overcoming the initial, technical difficulties, the focus is now on thematic, critical image formation and conscious reflection. We begin with the realization that architecture must be experienced in real confrontation - with all senses. The development of a 'culture of travel' with numerous excursions serves not only to stimulate independent acquaintance with cultural diversity (especially in the Euregio region) but also to encourage a targeted examination of significant and anonymous architectural works and ideas in their individual contexts.
