Course details AmS


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.


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.
