We understand building culture and sustainability as a causal task and opportunity of architecture and urban planning, as a prerequisite and result of responsible design. Our field is characterised by a continuous expansion of the range of tasks in which architects, as generalists among specialists and as moderators of collective processes, mediate, coordinate and design at the same time.

Where we come from…

The “official” history of the TU Darmstadt begins in the year 1836 with the foundation of the Höhere Gewerbeschule und der damit verbundenen Realschule (Higher Vocational School and the Associated Secondary School). Join us here on a journey that takes us back to the origins of our Faculty of Architecture and leads us right up to today’s events.
