Workreport Info/ Inpromptu Design


Work report info / impromptu design

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.
The work report is part of the graded work to be handed in.

Handing in the work report:

1. The printed work report needs to be handed in at the secretary’s office or the mailbox of the department and
2. Uploaded to L2P as a PDF, incl. 1-3 good pictures (jpg-format).

The files are only named as follows:
