Course details AmS

Content The aim of this course is to familiarise students with a material that is being used for an increasing range of applications in architecture and its properties by engaging in a fundamental analysis. On the basis of their own design, they will review appropriate use and technical options for realisation. The possibility of “hands-on” work will ensure that students handle this material with a conscious attitude and knowledge. Objective The main aim of this course is to get to know the main methods of using STEEL. Common methods of cutting and joining; finishing surfaces, questions of surface protection. Exemplary link of theory and practice, planning and realisation. The aim is to raise planning decisions taken in a design and construction process to the level of architectural reality by means of hands-on building of prototypes. Verification or falsification of all considerations will supply the necessary feedback required for learning. Annotation The assessment of the seminar takes place after submission of the shop drawing (usually 2-3 weeks after the end of the workshop week)
