The Module ‚Emerging Fields in Architecture` imparts knowledge about the latest research, design and development in research disciplines beyond mainstream architectural topics. In this module we encourage discussion and ideas that go radically beyond the traditional way of thinking. Our goal is to trigger a process of re-thinking and finding solutions to design challenges using an interdisciplinary approach. For the winterterm 2020, we will look for and trace the topic of ‘essentials’ from various angles throughout the module.
