Planning and Building in a Global Context
The department is dedicated to the practise- oriented teaching and research method DesignBuild: DesignBuild takes students from their studio desks into the physical world of human interactions and construction. It offers the unique chance to experience some of the greatest challenges of creating built environments for and with people.
DesignBuild Projects must:
- be based in higher education.
- have a brief, budget and timeframe.
- be built.
- have students involved in the design AND construction of the project.
Ursula Hartig head of the department forms part of the CoCoon-Studio team.
