Workreport Info/ Required Elective And Elective Subjects


It is the aim of the work report that you embed your experiences and applied methods within the context of the history of art and architecture. Only by recognizing and describing the correlation, the intuitive techniques become knowledge that can be applied to a superordinate, architectural context; thus, it is perfectly suited for your professional career. During the contact with architect’s attitudes, artistic trends or certain designers, you will discover parallels to the subjects of your own draft.
