Chair of Building Technology and Architectural Design

Technological development is one of the main factors for innovation in architecture. The Chair of Building Technology and Architectural Design, under the direction of Prof. Claus Steffan, forms –  in the fields of  teaching and research – an interface between the various engineering disciplines and the architect as a team coordinator during an integrated design process. Graduates in architecture must have the technical expertise to understand the engineering disciplines, basic and specialist engineers to develop integrated and sustainable design concepts.Aspects of energy and building technology as well as building physics will shape Sustainable Design in the future more than aspects of  building construction. Building technology will be playing a more significant role in the context of integral planning.Before this background, the department teaches architecture for more than 10 years, linking building technology and design.
