Architecture Theory and Science

At the chair for Architecture Theory and Science we look at architecture as social, political and aesthetic practice. The context of its creation and that of its critics is mutually configurative: forms, materials and their meaning are never absolute or anachronistic, but are permanently reconfigured. As material construction of society, architecture (and, therefore, its makers) bears unique responsibility. To equip us for this task our chair provides the vocabulary, methodology, curiosity and scepticism necessary to find the right questions—and to productively ask them.
