Architecture

Architects plan and design buildings, open spaces and the urban environment. The realization of an idea or concept requires technical, constructional, judicial and social competence, that harmonizes with a convincing layout and sustainability.

At the TU Berlin, students acquire the knowledge and skills in architectural design and urban planning in the interdisciplinary three-year bachelor’s program in architecture. Field trips to the urban reality aim to link theory and experience.

In the two-year master’s program, students have the opportunity to sustain their individual fields of interest. The contribution of different technical presentations as well as the scientific substantiation of concepts are especially relevant. The degree program is also offered as a dual master’s program in co-operation with the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

The two-year international master's program Architecture - Typology provides students with the opportunity to amplify their skills. Special emphasis in this program is set on building typology ranging from structural details of a building to the whole urban layout.
