Research is conducted by the Institute for Urban Landscape and the Institute for Constructive Design. The Institutes ensure the close linking of research and teaching in the Master studios.
The Institute for Urban Landscape (IUL) investigates landscape changes, settlement areas and the relationship between infrastructure facilities and territory. Partners come from public authorities, or are private and public investors.
The Institute for Constructive Design (IKE) examines general questions of interaction between construction, space, form and context in construction design. Partners come from the construction and building industry.
