Buildings convey meaning. It evokes effects through its use, through its shape, its pictorial quality, through its material and constructive nature. To create expression through the design and construction of space is an ability that requires specific ways of thinking, methods and tools of creative action. This deserves a basic fund of bodily experience and artistic practices and ways of thinking.
This is where the work of the Department of Visual Arts comes in. Within the Faculty of Architecture we teach and research the artistic handling of artistic media such as drawing, painting, graphics, spatial-plastic techniques, sculpture, model making, photography and moving images. We see ourselves as a workshop that offers space for the development of personal creativity - in the sensual and haptic handling of materials and in reflexive discourse. Fotot: Hannah Groninger
